1-Fear of failure . . .
This is the fear that keeps you from even trying.
It also keeps you from learning the valuable lessons that are gained only from a failure.
2-Fear of success . . .
Hold onto this one, and no matter what you start, you’ll end up sabotaging your efforts.
3-Fear of looking foolish . . .
If you’ve ever met someone who seems like they’re just high on life, they probably ditched this fear a while ago. It keeps you from really putting yourself out there, and doing your best.
(Sometimes your “best” is kinda weird . . . but that can be a good thing!)
4-Fear of public speaking . . .
This one actually hurts others as much as it hurts you. That’s because it prevents people from seeing your passion, and your brilliance.
5-Fear of loneliness . . .
This fear’s responsible for the “wall” some people put up, to keep from getting too close.
Sort of ironic, right?
6-Fear of poverty . . .
Scarcity mindsets rarely have high returns. Worry about losing money, and your financial decisions will be clouded. Alternatively, you may subject yourself to “workaholism.”
What’s your opportunity cost if you spend all of your time scrounging for dough?
7-Fear of change . . .
Change is big and scary, at least as far as your brain is concerned.
But is it bigger and scarier than your life will be in 5 years, if you don’t change?
8-Fear of being judged . . .
Just like fear #3, this one keeps you from expressing yourself fully. Who cares if a few people roll their eyes and judge you, if a few more people are truly inspired by your uniqueness?
9-Fear of disappointment . . .
If you’ve ever failed at anything — business, relationships, whatever — you may be haunted by those memories.
When you flip a coin ten times, the first nine flips have nothing to do with the outcome of the last one.
If you failed in the past, it doesn’t mean you’re doomed to keep failing.
10-Fear of being ashamed . . .
That’s one unpleasant emotion. We’ll do almost anything to avoid it, including sacrificing opportunities to shine.
What’s worse, being ashamed at one point or another, or never letting the world see your ideas?
11-Fear of being unloved . . .
Ouch. It hurts a little just thinking about this one. Social bonds are crucial for humans to survive, and especially cruical if you want to thrive. If you worry that people won’t love you, you may be more likely to stick to the ones who seem to — even if the relationship is unhealthy.
Did any of those fears resonate? (If not, congratulations! You are one shockingly fearless human.)
Thank you darling!!
I don't think these only apply to success, but just for living. They are all confidence based.
