Success is something many of us strive for. We have goals and aspirations to help us towards that success. However, sometimes when we reach that success, it can lead to a mixture of emotions. At times we may even fear success. Success is scary because there is always the possibility of it fading away, and we would ultimately fail. Fear of failure tends to be present in all of our fears of success. If you find yourself struggling with the fear of success, here are a few tips to keep in mind. 


Identify Negative Beliefs


Take the time to think about your thoughts. All of us have negative beliefs that are not reality. Those beliefs can instill in us fear that is unnecessary. Process all of your beliefs and try to determine which of these beliefs are realistic and something that you should fear.


Acknowledge Your Feelings


Fear tends to be many feelings all bottled together. What are you experiencing? Who is involved? Acknowledge how you feel so you can learn to work through those feelings. If you fear success, take time to think about the situation and precisely what frightens you. Are you afraid that your success will impact your family? Do you fear you will plateau at your job? There are often many components to fear, and it is helpful to acknowledge and understand them. 


Reach Out to Your Support Network


Whether you reach out to a mental health professional or a loved one, speaking about your fears can be helpful. Often, people who support you can lend their opinions and help you through those moments of fear. When you feel supported, you can find the strength to push through and continue with your goals.
