Breaking the Grip of Fear of Success: 3 Tools

I know that fear of success is real. I know it causes your heart to beat fast in your chest. I understand that the LAST thing you want to do is ask someone to buy whatever it is you’re selling. I know because it is the same for all of us. It is certainly the same for me.

Here are three tools that I have found that have helped me break the grip of fear of success in my life, and keep shrugging it off, everyday. 

1. The Coffee Challenge – This is the hardest gut check possible. You will learn a lot about yourself. But, ultimately, you will emerge in a new state. It seems easy to ask for a discount on a cup of coffee, but the lessons here are profound and lasting…

2. A Subscription to Headspace.com – yep, it’s expensive. That’s the price of commitment. Buy it. Listen. Do the exercises. You’re welcome. This restored some level of balance to my life and has talked me off the ledge more than once. To not share it with my readers would be a sin…. Seriously, this is the best way I know of to learn to meditate – and strips it of the woo woo often associated with it. You don’t  need to know how to do downward facing dog, a batch of incense or a desire to live on a mountain top. Just learn to listen and observe your self, separate from what you think of as your self…

3. The book – Choose Yourself by James Altucher – OK, he is odd and bluntly personal, but he is an amazing author and this is one of the best books about modern business life you can find. Read it… 

Now, to be sure, there are a lot of other materials and tools out there. But, for me, these 3 have been huge for me in the last year or so. Check them out, and let me know what you think via Twitter. I look forward to hearing from you!
