The Fear of Success

I find myself in an interesting position - not pysically, but mentally!

I need a change of direction. A new focus. Something to put my energy and drive into. And I could do with enough cash to live the life I want for me and my family.

So I have looked on-line. Who is not even slightly tempted by the offers of get-rich-quick schemes? 'If you follow my 3 / 4 / 10 step process then you too can have this Ferarri!' 'I have done it and so can you' etc, etc. I am great believer in hard work and in the premise that if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

Which brings me neatly back to my opening line.

I have spent the last two days working through the first lessons in the WA programme. They are good. They are clear. And they make sense. They have also sent my brain into a spin! Maybe I could do this? Maybe this can work? But isn't it all too good to be true? Why would people spend all of this time and effort helping others be successful when they could just use that time to be more successful themselves? I don't know.

But what I do know is that the community they have built, and that I have just started connecting with is truly astonishing, There are people like me all over the world just trying to do their bit for their family but, at the same time, happy to help out another like-minded soul who is in the same, or similar, position to them. It is so different to the feel of, just about anything else I have encountered on this journey so far.

So why the fear?

If the course material is good, and there is support from experienced people who have gone throught the process before me, and I completely buy into the ideas and have generated several (I think) good ideas myself since yesterday morning, then there is nothing stopping me. Success in possible if I follow the plan, work hard and believe!

The only barrier is me. The only person to blame would be me. The only thing that could limit my success is me. That's quite scary I think, because there is nowhere to hide.

But....that also means that if I do work hard, listen and learn then maye, just maybe, that Ferrari could be mine. We will see.

However the first step is to sign up to Premium.

Here we go!
