SNM127: Is Fear of Success The Reason You’re Failing?

You are your own worst enemy.  The only thing worse than lack of faith is thinking that victory will turn you into a monster.

Long Live the King

In the West, we have absolute faith that democracy is the greatest form of government possible.

It's a little strange because we all live in a Republic, not a democracy.

But this faith in democracy causes us to think that all monarchies are inherently bad.

But is this really the case?

Was there never a benevolent and wise monarch in the history of this planet?

We think of the words king and dictator as interchangeable, but they aren't.

Know Your Heart

If you became the king (or queen) tomorrow, would you instantly turn into a monster?

Would you start purging your enemies and forcing celebrities to date you?

Would you seek vengeance on your ex from high school?

Or would you do everything in your power to be the greatest monarch in human history?

Belief and Hope

If you believe that all monarchs are evil, then your subconscious will do everything in its power to keep you off the throne.

Even though you would have been amazing as a ruler, you have put a belief in between you and success.

This is the crux of the fear of success.

This bad logic train causes us to self-sabotage every single day.

Please remember that correlation does not mean causality.

And this applies to more than just monarchs…
