This is a double bind, and it leads to stagnation. Yet so many of us ARE afraid of both failure and success. Fear is the most pervasive emotion we have. It’s part of our genetics, as a survival mechanism! However, it IS possible to move beyond our fears.
I love the Acronym that FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real. Practice saying this to yourself whenever you find yourself coming from fear-based thoughts or actions.
SO many people have failed, and have gone on to be huge successes. Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, and millions more. But they didn’t let it hold them back. Just like a toddler taking a tumble. They shake it off and get right back up again.
But if you’re also afraid of success, do you even want to get back up? I believe that success is available to everyone. ALL are worthy of receiving from a beneficent Universe. As we go through life, overcoming our setbacks and failures, our sense of self-worth and trust are on an ever-upward spiral.
You can certainly embrace and diminish BOTH the fear of failure and the fear of success with EFT Tapping. It helps you reprogram your negative core beliefs that have been holding you back. Just practicing AWARENESS of your fears is a great first step. Become a witness to yourself. Practice being a 3rd party observer, you observing you. Notice how much time you spend in fear-based thinking.
Then you can SHIFT from fear-based thinking to love-based thinking. I believe that we are all beings of love, here to have a human experience. Our true essence, or True Self, is the part of us that is eternal. It is 100% based in love, and knows not fear. When we turn within during meditation, we can access the wisdom that is everywhere. Practice this, and when you do, you will find yourself moving more and more into love-based living. The more you experience it, the more you find your old fears subsiding.
My Quick Tip: For Ultimate Success, Place Your Focus On The End Result You Desire
Focus on the end result you desire. REALLY focus. It’s not only about focusing your THOUGHTS. Vibrate your energy as though you’re already there. Put in the details. See them. Feel them. Resonate with them. Our manifesting power, when we put our all into focusing on our end result, is magnified. The Universe lines up to support the change you desire, once you commit to it and focus on it, both physically and energetically. Mind, body, and spirit work as ONE to get you to your desired result.
- Forget about the “How?” The Universe will step in and take you in the direction of your desired change. Trust that this is true.
- You MUST take action in the direction of the change you desire. Just MOVE in that direction and the Universe will propel you along.
