{Video} How Fear Of Success Is Sabotaging Your Creative Career

I remember the first time I heard about the fear of success. It made no sense to me at all. Why would anyone be afraid of achieving everything that they had set out achieve? I had just come out of my first hypnosis session (not knowing that I would be using hypnosis for creatives just three short years later) and encountered a vision of my future that I couldn’t wait to realize.

There was a beautiful ranch filled with animals and a vineyard. Inside the gorgeous home was my office where I met with my clients who were doing amazing, inspirational things in the world. There were photos on the wall of me with the people I was able to help.

Outside, I could hear my husband in the distance working on a project. There was an overall feeling of peace and tranquility. It was so beautiful that I was moved to tears during the session, so grateful that my mind could even conceive of such a reality. To imagine that type of success was to know that it already exists. I just had to decide to make it happen.

So when the hypnotist told me that the number fear that people deal with is a fear of success, I couldn’t understand why anyone would fear such joy or serenity. Especially myself. Especially at a time when I was drifting and in a lot of pain.

Now that I’m the one facilitating clients creating and realize their own visions, I’ve had a lot of time to think about it. And I’ve realized something: fear of success is simply a fear of the unknown.
