You might be thinking: “I’m not afraid of success!” It’s not that you think you’re incapable of succeeding. It’s more about the fear of change that may come and whether you’re up for it. If you are doing some these things, it could be a sign that you have a fear of success.

1- Do you leave important tasks unfinished even though you know concluding them could propel your business forward?

2- Do you practice “productive procrastination?” Meaning, you’ll pick up a bunch of busy work to feel “productive” while truly avoiding the very important task that will actually move the needle?

Your money story also has a huge impact on your fear of success. If you grew up hearing negative statements about money like “rich people are bad” or “money changes people” or even “money doesn’t grow on trees!” These statements formed beliefs that linger in your subconscious and dictate your actions (or inactions).

3- Just when you’re on the verge of a breakthrough you suddenly quit, or pull back.

4 - You worry about change and fear the unknown when it comes to what it will mean for your life when you’re successful.

5- You set the bar low so that the changes that come are still within your comfort zone.

Which of these is showing up in your life? Let me know in the comments.
