How To Overcome Your Fear Of Success

By Craig Garber

Ever hear about someone eating something spicy, and once they get the spices down, it makes them start sweating?

Well, the other day I was eating lunch with a friend of mine -- Mexican food -- and immediately after gobbling down some hot salsa, sweat starts pouring down my buddy's face, like he was a fat man in a sauna.

The truth is, sometimes in anticipation of you crossing the finish line on a project you're working on, your mind becomes filled with anxiety and fears -- and suddenly YOU start sweating.

Some of your fears will be real ("What if your project fails?")... and... some of them will simply be perceived ("What will my significant other think of me?" and... ironically, "What if your project fails?").

Steven Pressfield, in his book, The War Of Art, calls these fears, thoughts and worries, "Resistance".

And "sensing" Resistance, is actually a good thing.

See, when you feel resistance slowly creeping its way into the back of your mind, it usually means you're about to do something with explosive potential -- maybe something that will even change your life forever.

Hockey great Wayne Gretsky once said, "You miss 100% of the shots you never take."

So start shooting, and don't be afraid.

My mentor once told me, most of the fears that spend their time preoccupying your thoughts (and wasting your time), have all been created, from the ground up, by you -- inside the walls of your own mind.

So don't let all these silly notions and all that other negative B.S. hold you back.

I know, just as well as you do, that these "bad" thoughts usually start playing themselves over-and-over again in the back of your mind, like some kind of vicious broken tape recorder... usually at the times you LEAST need to hear them.

Don't worry though.

It's just Resistance telling you you're getting a little out of your comfort zone, and that you're on the right track.

So start taking your shots, and don't be so afraid -- even if you are sweating like the fat man in the sauna.

Now go sell something,

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
