The Fear of Success
One of the biggest things that holds people back is quite surprising – yes, it's the fear of being successful! This is really quite shocking, since pretty much everybody wants some form of success or other, yet for so many, there is this overriding fear of being successful that causes them to self-destruct their attempts as success.
I have suffered from this fear myself and personally know how destructive it is to achieving my dreams.

So, if by now you've come to realize fear of success is keeping you down, you are now one step closer overcoming that fear and achieving the success you want, whatever that may be.
So what do I do next?
Well, the best thing I can suggest is to find yourself someone who's already faced down and overcome this fear or at least is willing to help you overcome it by holding you accountable to taking the actions that will move you forward in life and in achieving success in life. I have several coaches and business partners who can help me with that.
How can I meet such a person?
Well, how I met mine is by attending events, meetups, seiminars and gatherings where such people are likely to be and just talk with the people there. Seek out the people who are where you want to be next and talk with them. Let them know what's going on in your life and what you need. These people are often happy to help coach or mentor someone along.
The only way out of your fear of success is through it.
