…fear of success is often based on an internal polarity.
Question: Hello Alana, I have this problem and I hope you can help.
I’ll be 25 this month, and I’m currently taking medication for the depression that I’m trying to overcome.
I had a breakdown, while attending college, with all the stress of school, not knowing what I really want to do or what I am capable of doing.
I recently found out that I have a fear of success. I would rather fail at things than succeed at them.
I was just wondering what I can do to overcome this fear of success. I have no idea what my life purpose is and I would really appreciate some insight into my problem.
Thanks for giving me some personal life coaching on this challenging aspect.
Answer: Thank you for your question. Alana is happy that you brought it forth. When I feel the core of your vibration, and go into this essential belief to do with your fear of success, it feels that it has to do with fears related to the concept of abandonment. This connects to a feeling that you are alone or a belief that we are separate and not connected to God and the source of all that is.
Healing Concepts of Separation
You see, when an individual does very well and succeeds they can have a fear within them that others will reject them because they are successful. Also, people can hold a fear that if they do not succeed they will be abandoned, so they must succeed as well.
What Alana is expressing is that fear of success is often based on an internal polarity. Whether it is, “I have to succeed”‘ or “I cannot succeed”, both are the same dilemma. They both relate to feelings based on rejection that connect with experiences of abandonment combined with a belief that we are separate. This leads to the belief that we are separate from God.
As you begin to strengthen your awareness that we are all connected, and develop your intuition a little more through intuitive practicing you will begin to strengthen the spirituality that exists within you. You will begin to heal some of the confusion that is within your internal opposing beliefs.
Also, as you begin to examine any time in your life where you felt alone, like tasks were left up to you you can begin to rebalance then this issue that keeps success at bay should lighten and begin to dissolve.
Alana feels that some of the depression you have experienced also has to do with getting sufficient sunlight along with these unuseful beliefs. Some of what is holding you back could also have to do with your diet due to your internal chemistry and how it fuels your cellular nature.
But gradually, as you begin to recognize that you are connected to all that is, and that you have all resources available from the ability to recognize we are always in the now and calling forth your connectedness you will begin to recognize all that is, is always aiding you. You will begin to trust that you are not separate and you will begin to heal from this illusion.
So, thank you dear one for your question. Alana appreciates that you have a sense of awareness about you and that you are beginning to explore self-realization and life in deeper ways. Because, as you develop your sense of individuality becoming a stronger expression of your light, then this light will direct success to you and the success will be well received.
Thank you, dear one.
