Major Fears All Successful People Must Overcome

Welcome to our series on overcoming your fears.

As a successful employee or as an entrepreneur, to succeed in life, you must overcome your biggest fears. The worst fears are like straight-jackets. They restrain our abilities and make our dreams impossible.

Let’s start by identifying these fears and knowing how to overcome them to be truly successful.

Fear of criticism – A lot of people make decisions based on what people think. We allow close friends and family and society to guide our decisions.

To become truly successful you have to learn to listen to your gut instincts. Fear of criticism could stop you from reaching your full potential. Think about it carefully.

Fear of poverty

Many people are stuck in “survival mode”. A 26 year old who works 40 hours a week once wrote “I pay the bills and live an average life, but I know I can have a better job and reach my fullest potential. I’m tired of being bored and I want to use my gifts. I’m afraid that if I leave my job to pursue my dreams I’ll run out of money.” The fear of poverty is crippling and stopping him from reaching his full potential.

Too many people settle for mediocrity because they think they most “survive” instead of “thrive”. The fear of poverty should never hold you back from your dreams.
