Fear – Overcoming the #1 Reason for Failure

Overcoming the #1 reason for failure in business or in life is Fear!

Fear can take many forms and may be the result of many different circumstances, but in all cases, fear comes from the PAST!

  • Past experiences
  • Past emotional responses
  • Past interactions with others
  • Past hurtful comments or criticism

What is FEAR

FEAR of FAILURE – negative lessons learned in life, when the results were less than expected, resulting in hurt, emotional pain and increased self-doubt.

FEAR of SUCCESS – anxious feelings when people offer congratulations or praise, for a job well done, or when faced with appearing in public and leading others.

FEAR of MONEY – worry that having money may result in people taking advantage and then leaving, once the money is gone.

FEAR of REJECTION – perhaps the content will be dismissed or ignored or people will argue and put it down and criticize our comments and beliefs.

The list of potential fears is long and complex, however, all fears are based on … The Past

Everything you are, and all of your beliefs, are based on your lifetime of experiences, circumstances, interactions which form your personality and establish your “truths”. We are the sum total of our experiences, everything that was said to us, happened to us or was experienced by us, since birth.

If, that past included being frequently criticized by

  • Parents
  • Friends
  • Teachers
  • Bullies

It is very most likely feelings of low self-esteem have developed. We may feel unworthy, fake,

Similarly, if we were hurt by those we love, or those we looked up to, we may have developed an internal “truth”, we are unworthy of respect and love.


In order to achieve our goals in life, and be truly successful, we must overcome these fears!

Acknowledging and accepting that these events occurred and are over and done with, will allow us to progress toward success, much more easily.

These thoughts can no longer hurt us, as they are simply memories.

They are no longer relevant to our life today, as they are based on events from long ago.

Acknowledge – the event took place and may not have been appropriate, but it is over and done and can not be changed.

Accept – the event occurred and any negative feelings belong to that time, not now.

Action – take back control, these feelings are not relevant to your life today

If there are people in your life related to these events … forgive them, not for their benefit, but for your own peace of mind and happiness.

Acceptance and forgiveness are the two most powerful actions you can take, to restore your self-esteem and self-confidence … allowing you to move forward, rather than be hampered by the negative memories!

Meditation, Hypnotherapy, and Mindfulness can all help you through this process of healing, restoration and redefining yourself.

How to Experiment Your Way To Success

Just because you’ve planned your goals right down to the last detail doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experiment and see what else works.

Maybe what you’ve envisioned, during the planning stages, isn’t going to work in real life, so you look around for alternatives.

But you don’t know which of the available options you’ve found is going to be a good fit for your business or life goals.

So, what do you do then?

You experiment!

Successful people have all experimented their way to success.

If one method’s not working, they use another one.

They don’t shut their brains down and surrender if one method’s not working.

Let’s use driving as an example:

You’re trying to get to a city that is 1,000 miles away, and you’ve got your entire trip mapped out.

You’ve got a good old-fashioned map with you.

Along the way, you discover the map is not updated, and the roads are blocked for some reason.

You don’t know which way to go and there’s nobody else there.

So, you drive around, you explore until you find the correct road that’s going to take you back to the highway and get you closer to your destination!

See, that wasn’t so bad.

If you’ve got plenty of gas (your motivation), you can pretty much go anywhere you like.

You can always gas up when you’re running low, so you can continue your journey.

Another benefit of experimentation is that you can have fun, and you learn something new.

Going with the previous example, you learn new roads, you learn which road is going to take you to where you want to go.

That’s new knowledge for you.

You may have planned for the journey, but it’s almost always never going to go according to plan.

Just enjoy the process.

You’re in control of your journey – you’re sitting in the driver’s seat.

Don’t let anybody else dictate where you’re going to go.

You can ask for help when you get lost, and you can take their advice, or you can explore the back roads and learn as much as you can about the location and your ultimate destination.

And that’s it!

That’s basically how you experiment your way to success!

4 Habits of Successful People You Can Copy Right Away

There’s a reason why successful people have turned out the way they have.

They’ve got the discipline, the confidence, the passion, the drive, and the right habits.

In this article, you’ll learn a few habits of successful people that you can copy right away. 

1.     Morning ritual habit

The morning ritual habit is common amongst the world’s most successful people.

They go to bed early, and they wake up early.

While the rest of their household is still in bed, they’d be up and about doing their morning rituals.

As soon as they wake, they’d do their rituals.

Some like to exercise, and some like to meditate.

Most of them, however, take advantage of the quiet to plan out their day ahead.

2.     Read inspiring books

Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men, read 50 books a year!

That’s equivalent to 1 book a week.

He’s obviously a smart guy, but he still reads all these books to learn new things and to get inspired.

Getting started with reading isn’t hard.

You simply need to set aside a block of time each day for reading.

You can do it early in the morning, as part of your morning ritual, or you can do it before bedtime or anytime throughout the day for that matter.

3.     Prioritize the most difficult tasks

Some people like to put off the difficult task for last, but successful people look forward to the opposite.

They recommend getting the most difficult and time-consuming tasks first.

Once you’ve crossed the difficult tasks off your list, you’ll have some momentum, and you can quickly work on the rest of your tasks.

When you save the difficult task for last, you may not have enough time to finish it, and you’ll then need to set aside another time for that, maybe the next day.

4.     Keep a daily journal

Successful people keep a daily journal.

They record their activities for the day, they write down their thoughts, their emotions.

It helps with motivating them on days when they don’t feel like they’re on top of the world.

It helps to reassure them they’re doing something productive.

They can see how far they’ve come and they can assess if they’re going in the right direction.
