Do you ever feel like something is holding you back?
Do you find that you 'get in your own way'?
Is real achievement constantly just out of your grasp?
Fear of success may sound like a strange idea, but many people can identify with the feelings above.
However hard you try, something always gets in your way to spoil your focus, destroy your motivation or undermine your confidence.
Old patterns can trip you up
The unconscious mind is a strange beast. Part of its job is to keep you safe, and if it perceives a threat it will remember it so that if it sees a similar pattern again in the future, it will make you scared again.
Over time, this can cause problems because what was once a threat may no longer be. Or it might have got it wrong first time.
A fear of success may have come from all sorts of experiences, and the cause really isn't important. What's important is getting rid of it.
