Linz’s Musings – Is Fear holding you back?

Happy Friday, welcome to Autumn and hasn’t summer gone out with a whimper here in Melbourne.  March 5 and already we are getting tops of only 15-18c.  Crazy!

Having said that, we have been busier than a one-armed bricklayer in Beirut… Market sentiment has certainly turned this year and many are looking to the U.S market to invest, is great to see…

I was thinking though, why so many people love the idea of the opportunities and the returns that can be made, but never actually make the decision to start?

I was watching a video on Facebook the other day, from Fearless Motivation (check these guys out on YouTube, certainly worth watching a lot of their videos!) and they were talking about why most people are not successful and it really hit home for me.

One of the main reasons we don’t succeed in anything is FEAR

But often, it can ACTUALLY be the fear of SUCCESS that holds us back…

The fear that we will not fit in.

The fear that we will lose friends or family along the way.

So many are afraid of success, that they deliberately CHOOSE to stay mediocre.

Is it really the fact that you may be afraid of succeeding that is holding you back?  Fear of who you will become by being successful?

The truth is though, you do not need to ‘lose yourself’ to become a success, moreover you actually grow INTO yourself.

Actually BECOME the person you are meant to be.

I can attest that sometimes the life of an entrepreneur can be a lonely one, so few understand the struggles that you go through…

But it is also one of the most satisfying journeys I have ever undertaken, to know that you can become all that you were meant to be – not limited by others’ thoughts and ideas on what or who you SHOULD be.

What is it that you are REALLY afraid of?

You got this!
