In most situations it is negative and humiliating to fail. Nobody wants that.
But fear of success is sometimes greater and more devastating than fear of failure. Some people feel more or less paralyzed, because they fear to fail, which causes them to be passive and unable to do anything at all. They are afraid of taking important decisions that can sometimes change their lives.
Whenever they need to take a decision and start doing something relevant, they scan the situation searching for something that can lead to a failure. If they believe that there is even the smallest chance of failure they will give up.
What causes people to be afraid of success? That is a good question. People who are afraid of success are usually people, who have not experienced enough success in their lives. These people perhaps never have been really successful and have not felt the sweet taste of success. Maybe this is the reason why they are afraid of having a success. Perhaps they haven´t got a clue about what to do with the success.
Perhaps they have heard since they were little kids some negative remarks and limiting rules about how to think and behave from their parents, their friends, their teachers and from other people around them. People have informed them not only about how to think and behave but also perhaps about their chances to become successful in the future. This can, in the end, lead to a lack of confidence and of knowledge how to deal with success.
First of all, you have to start to believe in yourself, and stop care about what people around you think and say. Begin with small steps and build the necessary confidence.
Start taking risks carefully and experience the taste of success. As soon as success comes also to you, you will begin to enjoy it. You will start learning how it is to have success and how to stop being afraid of it.
Success will come to those who believed they could deal with it.
