We often think it is fear of failure that is holding us back but, for most people, it is actually fear of success that gets in the way of success. You may be saying, “No way. I really want success.” The problem is, your subconscious may be saying the opposite. There is often one or more subconscious fears that are blocking the way.
Success brings change and that can be scary. We all feel more comfortable with what we are familiar with. It’s called a Comfort Zone. To be successful in anything, we need to step out of our comfort zone. This is especially true as we are working toward raising our rank to Diamond Level in Network Marketing. Lots of changes come as you rise through the ranks in your company. You want to get to Diamond but there is a fear of the unknown. What will be expected of you as the team gets larger and larger.
Fear of the unknown can cause you to subconsciously sabotage your success. Lots of fears come under the category of unknown. How will friends and family feel about your success? Will they be threatened by it? Will You lose friends?
Will you have to do things you don’t like? Example: speak in front of a large group.
Success in network marketing will mean an increase of income. That can trigger a host of subconscious fears. You may have an income set point that you have running in your subconscious. There can be a fear of having too much income that keeps you sabotaging your success. You may be saying, “No, I really want more income.” But these fears are running in your subconscious. They are conflicting with what you really want.
One sign that this is happening is that you find yourself procrastinating. Procrastination is a way we subconsciously sabotage our success.
We all have areas of our life where feel subconscious fears that show up as resistance. The tapping script below might help you shift some of those fears. In upcoming blog posts I will touch on some common fears that people have in their subconscious programming and some EFT scripts you can use to shift to a more confident state of mind.
