Overcoming the fear of success

Fear is a very powerful motivator.  It's a natural part of our survival instinct!  But it's also a learned habit.  Have you looked around at children and watched how they seem to be fearless in so many more situations than we are. They will walk up to perfect strangers and say, “Hi!”, while we (on the other hand) are standing back, almost afraid to walk up with them to say, “Hello!”. I think we have been trained through our lifetime to let fear dictate who we are and what we do. I am sure fear of poverty and fear of health issues drive us to want something better for our lives and for our families, but that same fear keeps us from getting what we want.  For far too many people considering an Organo Gold coffee business, this seems to be the case.  If you've been afraid to start, or you started and quit (out of fear and procrastination), you're not alone.  Remember that.

Everybody 'wants' to build a big down-line in Organo Gold.  In fact, everybody 'wishes' for money and/or more of it.  But when it comes to passing out coffee samples, picking up the phone and calling someone, or following up with someone, there is always something else that takes our attention. How many times have you gone to bed thinking “I’m going to do this tomorrow! Now is the time!” and you get so excited that you can hardly go to sleep!  So many great ideas are going around in your mind that you want to get up and do something NOW!  Then, as you wake the following morning, you are so tired from the lack of sleep you start making up reasons to put off what you were excited about. “I’ll just sleep one more hour and then get on it! I’ll take a shower and then make some calls!”

Does that sound familiar?

I'll say it again. You are not alone!  To me these are natural actions because of the ways we have been “trained” to live.  Habits that were formed over a long period of time can be changed, but it takes time and focus to reverse them!  I have seen this with me and my Organo Gold business!  I have changed the habits by doing something every day that I was uncomfortable with so that I could get back to that childhood fearlessness.  Don’t give up!  Don’t quit!  And most important of all, don't be afraid to start!

You got yourself into this and you can get yourself out!  Don’t look too far ahead!  Take each day at a time and you can accomplish GREAT THINGS!  Napoleon Hill stated, “Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.” He also said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”  What are you believing? Start believing the positive and remove the negative from your thinking process!

Decide to change your life!

Any day we wish, we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish, we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish, we can start a new activity. Any day we wish, we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year. 

We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth, and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make. But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause. As Shakespeare uniquely observed, “The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves.” We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today. Those who are in search of the good life do not need more answers or more time to think things over to reach better conclusions. They need the truth. They need the whole truth. And they need nothing but the truth. We cannot allow our errors in judgment, repeated every day, to lead us down the wrong path. We must keep coming back to those basics that make the biggest difference in how our life works out. And then we must make the very choices that will bring life, happiness and joy into our daily lives. And if I may be so bold to offer my last piece of advice for someone seeking and needing to make changes in their life: If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life. And it all begins with your very own power of choice.  ~Jim Rohn
