Overcoming the Two Fears to a Fulfilling Life: Success and Failure!

Whenever you have a discussion with people concerning their dreams and goals in life, you will find that most of them will discuss subtle particulars such as a nice car, a big house, a six-figure salary, and a trophy spouse as their parameters of success.

Interestingly, most people that indicate these parameters as their measures of success usually have a sense of fear whenever they approach new opportunities to propel their career altogether.

One of the causatives of such fearful emotions is failure. Most individuals are scared of failing, and hence miss out on opportunities that would no doubt have provided them with the path to achieve their goals and dreams.

Unfortunately, by not following your goals and dreams, you consistently make your destined path to success foggier.

Instead of being bound by the confines of fear, you should take a deep breath and guide your way forward. That being said, here are some of the most fundamental tips that successful people have used to overcome their fear of success and to pursue what they desire passionately.

Making an Identification of Your Desire and Chasing It Relentlessly

The fear of both failure and success has hindered many from achieving their dreams

The biggest fear of success is fueled by not knowing what we want in the first place. You see, success is not measured by material wealth. Rather it is measured by the emotion and euphoric feeling that you get once your goals and dreams have been achieved.

That is why you might find that there are still a relatively rich amount of individuals suffering from mental and psychotic breakdowns because the material wealth did not satiate their emotional happiness.

Hence, when you desire something, chase it relentlessly, and don’t give up on it no matter what the consequences. But before that, you have to determine that what you are chasing will give you emotional satisfaction in the long run.

This is one of the reasons why when you are nauseated, medics will advise you to focus on a motionless point in the far off distance. Not only will this help you stabilize the body, but also review your fears in a different manner. When you fear success or subsequent failure, simply focus on your goal to bring your mental state to a better position.

Identify Indicators That Are Undermining Your Path to Success

In this world of active and reactive forces, it is vital that you identify any causes of a pull-back effect that might be hindering your path to success.

Remember, not everyone wants you to succeed. As a matter of fact, there are individuals out there who will criticize you regardless of the achievements you are making. This is negative criticism and you should avoid it at all costs.

On the other hand, there is constructive criticism. This comes from individuals who are genuinely happy for your success and will advise you whenever they see that you have lost your path in life.

It’s your job to determine individuals who truly want you to succeed in your path to achieving your dreams. You should keep them close.

Alternatively, for those toxic individuals who want to see you fail, you should avoid them at all costs.

Focusing on your goals and not compromising on them is what will make your path to success easier

Fall in Love with the Pressure

If you feel a lot of pressure as you chase the goals and dreams that you desire, that’s a good sign. It means that you are no longer in your comfort zone and that you have to work really hard to achieve what you desire.

Additionally, it also shows that you are working smart to achieve the dreams and objectives that you had initially set in place to your inevitable path to success.

For example, if you’d like to be more proactive with your projects, you need to set tighter deadlines for yourself, undertake more research, and allocate more time to sharpening your skills in your subject of interest.

Last but Not Least, Appreciate Yourself

The ultimate path to success is to appreciate oneself for every little achievement that you make. If you seek acknowledge and acceptance from others, you might find feeling disappointed when this acknowledgment is not given.

Apart from that, you should also reward yourself whenever you mark an achievement. There’s something euphoric about rewarding one’s one hard work. Not only will it motivate you to soldier own with your dream, but makes it easier for you to manifest it into reality.
