If this were the 1990s, I might agree that there are some limitations that hold us back from accomplishing some of the things that we desire to accomplish. BUT it isn’t. In fact, in this new millennium, there are so many things that we can do without “permission” or restriction. There is literally no excuse that I am willing to accept from anyone who says that (s)he can’t live his/her dreams.

Welcome to newness. Today is the start of a new month, and in addition to being grateful for being here to experience it, this is a time for you to also evolve into a newer version of yourself. We were built to evolve and to grow. We are supposed to learn something new and to expand our knowledge. We are supposed to grow. Therefore, if you are not proactive in your own evolution, you are doing yourself a disservice.
Open your mind to the possibilities of who you could be, if you would only pay closer attention to the changes you could make to enhance your life. Make this the month that you go full force at living intentionally. Don’t slack off because the holidays are upon us. Go harder. Set yourself up for success so that at the beginning of 2017, you will have a complete plan laid out for yourself. Then, all you have to do is execute!
Go get it. Make this month the most productive you’ve been all year. You’ve got this!
I constantly say that I want to be successful and to make more money, but the moment that things start to change for the better, fear sets in. I have heard a lot about fear of success, but I didn’t know that it was a real thing, until I experienced it myself.
I’m not talking about the butterflies that I get right before I take the stage. I’m talking about a real fear. Every time I book a client and collect payment, a flood of self-doubting thoughts race into my mind. I think Oh crap! This person believes in me and is expecting me to deliver something amazing. I would never put myself out there, if I didn’t think that I could do the work and do it well. But for some reason, I feel anxious.
I work tirelessly to be sure that my client has the best experience and gets the exact results he/she was expecting or better. I haven’t had an unhappy client, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling fearful in the beginning.
So what is the fear of success? Susanne Babbel, a phychologist, believes that the feeling of the excitement of success can be very similar to the same feeling of trauma, and most people confuse the feelings and end up feeling “phobic” about success. She suggests recalling exciting experiences and taking note of the feeling that arises. Then, she suggests recalling an overwhelming experience and taking note of the feelings that arise from that.

Okay so I am having trouble getting out of this negative cycle I’m in. It seems like nothing I do make a difference in my life. I try to say that I want something good, but only bad comes my way. Every guy I’ve dated has done me dirty. My job is okay but it doesn’t pay me enough money. I’m tired of seeing other people do better than me when I want the same things they have. I watched The Secret and I did what it said and I’m still getting the same results. I’m only asking you, because I read your stories about how you used to be in crazy situations, but you got to a point where you don’t do that stuff no more. I mean, you got what you want in life, so I need help to get what I want for my life. Can you help me please? Read more →
