Fear of criticism
Many people are afraid to live their dreams for fear of what others may think and say about them.
Making decisions based on what people think will debilitate you for the rest of your life.
Fear of poverty
Many people are stuck in “survival mode.” Too many people settle for mediocrity because they think they must “survive” instead of “thrive.”
Never let the fear of poverty hold you back from your dreams.
Fear of old age (and death)
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Most people die at 25 and are buried at 75.” This metaphorical death comes when people figure they can’t make it happen, so they end up quitting in advance.
Fear of old age can also be harmful when a person has to go through a major career transition. In the end, age is far less important than your belief in yourself.
Fear of failure or “what if”
“What if it doesn’t work? What if no one likes it? What if it fails?”
These are the wrong questions. Instead, concentrate on all the ways you may succeed. Even if you fail, it can give you a chance to reflect, correct and succeed.
Fear of offending others
People must be audacious in their actions if they are going to achieve their dreams.
Many people are afraid of offending others with their self-promotion. However, no one will recognize your talents unless you show them.
Fear of looking foolish
We need to have more faith in our decision-making ability.
Find out who you are and what fits your style. Often, you’ll have to start by finding out who you aren’t. Trust your gut and know that you’re making the right decision.
Fear of Success
Many people are afraid of their true “self-expression,” which is what real success is all about.
Many families operate on the belief system that becoming successful is unrealistic, so they never push their kids. Instead of adopting this mindset, believe that you will achieve success.
Start your day, the smart way!
