Major Fears Successful People Must Avoid
What are the fears all successful people must avoid? There are some fears that deprive people of their success in life and they need to be avoided if possible. If you want to be successful or continue being successful, there are fears you should avoid.
We have the major and minor ones, the major fears are those that can disrupt your success which are:
The fear of failure is the beginning of failure. One of the major fears a successful person should avoid is the fear of failure; failure is part of success. You cannot fear failure and expect to be successful.
Failure is part of success so you should be ready to make mistakes, fail and try all over again.
Fear of failure leads you to asking ‘what if’ questions when you are about to take another step towards being more successful. You should not focus on what will happen if you fail but rather focus on things that will happen if you succeed.
Mistakes and failures give you the chance to learn new things, gain experience, reflect and make corrections.
(2) Offending Others
This is another fear you should avoid, do not be afraid of offending others and at the same time, do not go extra miles to offend others. A successful person will always have enemies that will be angry because of your success so you should not be scared of that.
Trying not to offend anyone will stop you from achieving some certain things and you can’t even stop people from getting offended unnecessarily. If you want to achieve your dreams, you should be bold and audacious to take action.
Fear of success is common among successful people, they are successful but there are some levels of wealth, fame and success they are scared of getting to. They only appreciate those who are there but make no effort to get there even though they know they are capable of getting to that level.
You should not be afraid of success, it will only stop you from getting to where you deserve to be. Some people are afraid of success because they think they can never be successful or because of what their parents inculcated in them thinking success is inachievable because they didn’t achieve it which is wrong. Anyone can be successful with the right actions.
Is there anyone that lives that has not been criticized at one point or the other in life? So why should you fear criticism? The world won’t come to an end if you are criticized, so do not be scared but rather embrace it.
Being scared of criticism will stop you from living your life and achieving your goals because you will always care about what people say, people talk out of jealousy and anger at times so you shouldn’t base your own life or success on what people say rather you should know who you are and chase after your dreams.
Making decisions or doing things based on what people will say will destabilize your life and confuse you to the extent that you won’t know what to do, you won’t know whether to listen to your instinct or to people.
(5) Old Age
Some people are scared of old age and death that the fear cripples them when they are still young, this fear even stops them from doing things that will secure their future and hold them when they are old.
Being scared of old age make people quit even when they should still be trying to make things work out. Anyone who is scared of old age should be ready to forfeit being successful which is not an option to someone who knows what he or she is doing.
(6) Fear of regret
This is a fear that almost all successful people have, they are scared of doing things that will result into regret or even blame so this stops them from taking risks ad major steps toward achieving success.
Most successful people are scared of finding themselves at a point where they find it difficult to make decisions but it happens to everyone because no one is imperfect. The time I think you should get scared is when you are unable to make decision for a very long time or you make unwise decisions.
Hence do not become scared immediately a state of indecision creeps in, you should be calm and find a way to go about it.
You should try and avoid all these fears as a successful person, but if you have one or all of them then you should try and overcome them because they are unhealthy for your success, they will pollute and destroy the success you have built whether it is over the years or over the months or even over the century.
Some people create fear to use to their advantage, it is not advisable but if you do it, then you should be extremely careful so the fear doesn’t have more power than you intend to give to it.
