Fear of Success?

on February 15, 2019
Fear of Success
Is that a thing?
Because, if it is, I think I have it…

I start out feeling motivated

But then I think about the “consequences” of my motivation
How busy do I want to be?

… … …

I don’t even like talking on the phone.

And face-to-face?!? That’s a different story altogether!
Are these excuses because I am afraid?

Afraid of something I know nothing about?

But…
There are other things I started in my life that worked out okay

How do I know that I won’t be good at this, too?

Just because I don’t have a “knack” for it in the beginning doesn’t mean I won’t take to it later

Starting a new job is always a challenge
Starting a new CAREER is a big change

Change hurts
Change is SCARY!

But

Change is necessary

The caterpillar doesn’t even know it’s going to change and look out how glorious it’s change is!
It simply builds a cocoon
Changes
And then starts being something else entirely
It’s probably hard at the beginning

But the caterpillar learns how to be a butterfly
Because it HAS to
