Overcoming the Fear of Success

Most people have heard about the fear of failure, but many aren't aware that a fear of success is just as common. In fact, the excitement of success--either anticipated or actual--can feel close to anxiety for many. It might manifest as being anxious when everything is going really well, or feeling guilty for succeeding. And worries about social rejection or alienation from friends and family, feeling like a fraud or being unworthy, or believing that success has negative consequences can all lead to sabotaging, procrastinating, or avoiding it altogether. Such fears and hindering behaviors can stem from beliefs or basic physiology, both of which can actually be running your life under the radar. Your physiology can mix up excitement with fear, and signal scary feelings and thoughts about success that dictate your subsequent actions. However, by syncing your body and mind to the same goals, achieving and enjoying success can come within your reach. This course will show you how.

Recognize and Rise Above Fears of Success

With this course, you'll learn how to recognize and manage your fears that originate in your body and in your mind, so that the fear doesn't control you. Through the eight lessons and accompanying audio offerings, you'll explore your deepest beliefs about success, how to change your perspective and move closer to success, and how your body, emotions, words and thoughts can support you, even (and especially) on an energetic level.

This course explores the following aspects of recognizing and overcoming fears of success, enabling you to move on to actualizing your goals in life:

  • Understand the physiology of fear.

  • Foster emotions that move you toward, not away from, success.

  • Recognize when your body misinterprets excitement as fear.

  • Learn ways to change your perspective.

  • Learn how to identify subconscious beliefs about success.

  • Visualize success.

  • Align with successful energy.

  • Lessen your fears about the unpredictability of the unknown.

Addressing a foundational fear that you might not even be aware you have could be the piece you've been missing in your quest for success in any area of life--however you define success. This course is your opportunity to find, observe, and change unhelpful mental and physical responses to your thoughts about or steps toward success, and to replace conflicting responses to success with positive thoughts and actions aligned with your goals.
