Why Do You Fear Success: Get Over It

by Anne Bellamy, Author of Using The Law of Attraction to Help The Universe Help You

It sounds crazy, doesn't it?  To actually be afraid of success. After all, here's what success looks like:

How is it that so many of us are afraid of that which can bring us so much joy?  That's a trick question.  The answer is, that many people do not believe success will bring us joy.  The vast majority of people actually believe that success will bring misery.  That success can never last.  Do these sayings sound familiar?

Money is the root of all evil.
Money can't buy you love
Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it

No wonder we fear success.  Surely nothing good can come of it.   With that way of thinking, you are right.  Success will bring you misery.  How destructive is that way of thinking, though?  Do you really think you'll be happier if you're unsuccessful?  How does that look?

Hmmm.....Maybe it's time you got over your mentality of "lack" and "I don't deserve it".  Start cultivating a mentality of "abundance" and "I'm worth it!"

Compare the pictures above and you will naturally know which state you want.
