I recently had a person comment on one of my articles on fear of success. He thought it was absurd that someone would fear success. He said, “Everyone wants success.”

Well, that is true, everyone does want success but why is it that NOT EVERYONE is successful? The simple fact is, everyone has hidden fears about something. These hidden fears can cause resistance to success. Your subconscious mind is operating on another level and it might be sabotaging your success.

You want to be successful but you keep getting in your own way. I know how that feels. I have gone through periods of sabotage. EFT is the best way to clear it and get moving again. If you are serious about reducing sabotage, you will want to do some EFT every morning to get your mindset and vibrational energy in the abundance attracting side rather than repelling. If you are resisting, you are repelling whatever it is you want to attract.

Think about what you want.

    What does success in your network marketing business feel like?
    Picture yourself there.
    What is happening?
    What responsibilities will you have?
    How much money is coming in with your monthly commission check?
    What is the size of your team?
    What kind of leader are you?
    How many leaders do you have on your team?

As you think about each of these things, take notice of how you feel as you think about EACH ONE. If you get any negative feelings like nervousness, anxiety, fear, overwhelm, or anything negative, these are things that can become blocks. These blocks can cause you to fall into sabotaging behavior.

Do you ever find yourself “going down a rabbit hole” when you really intend to be working on income producing activities? You know what I mean. Those “SQUIRREL MOMENTS.” Those of you who saw the movie “UP” know what squirrel moments are. 😉

Anyway, You intend to do some prospecting, make some followup phone calls, write a blog post or some other business building activity but you see a drawer that needs to be cleaned out, a closet that needs organizing, dust bunnies, a little online research, a cat video on Facebook. You find yourself distracted and procrastinating. The time slips away and you didn’t get anything on your income producing activities list done.

I get it. I have those moments too. The key is, when you notice yourself falling into a squirrel moment or some other form of procrastination, stop and do some EFT!

Think about some of these possible hidden fears:

    New responsibilities
    People expect things of you
    There are lots of changes
    A lot of work involved
    I’ll have no time
    I don’t like calling people on the phone
    I don’t like talking to strangers
    Fear you won’t be able to do what it takes
    Fear of letting your spouse or family down

    Past issues
    You may have witnessed the toll success has taken on someone you know
    The way your parents talked about successful people
    Harsh judgments you witnessed other people doing to people who were successful

These are just a few examples. There are all kinds of things that come with success. Some of these things are scary but EFT is a great way to clear those negative feelings.

Below is a Tapping Script for those times when you are having a SQUIRREL MOMENT. I would use Valor and Acceptance oil with this one. You could do some rounds with Magnify Your Purpose oil. More on those oils here.

I rarely do EFT without using some oils to enhance the tapping. If you would like to really power up your tapping, check out the EFT Oils.

If you really want success in network marketing or any important goal you have, you need to get rid of negative self-limiting beliefs. That can be a challenge because we all have things from our past that has affected our mental programming. Those things factor in to how we move through life today.

One underlying fear that you may not even be aware of is the fear of change. That is one I was really surprised by when I took an abundance assessment test.

I learned that I have and “intense fear of change.” Well, I have done a lot of EFT clearing things that blocked abundance but apparently not enough. Anyway, now to clear that block.

It’s funny, you are working toward a goal because you want to change things but there is an underlying fear of change. You don’t have to be a mental giant to see that is going to be a major block to progress. It’s like climbing up a hill dragging a heavy object behind you. The intensity of the fear determines how heavy the block. If it’s just a little bit, you may only be slowed down but if it’s a really intense fear, it could keep you at a standstill for a long time.

The fear of change applies to all kinds of things: business goals, weight loss goals, spiritual goals, etc.

Think about your business goals. What do you intend for your business? Do you intend to build a business that will provide security for your family? Would you like to become a Diamond in your company? What are the changes that would come in your life if you achieved the rank of Diamond? Would you have to get on stage at conventions? Would more be required of you as a leader? What new responsibilities will I have? Will I have to do public speaking? How will I manage more money? What will friends and family think of the changes in my life? There may be others you can think of.


You can do some EFT to help release the fear of change. Think about what it will be like when you reach your goal. Whatever the goal is, picture yourself there. What feelings come up. Is there anything about that goal that seems a bit scary? Do you fear public speaking?


Here are a few oil blends that you could use with this EFT session. I am starting with Release and Valor. Abundance, Acceptance, Believe, Dream Catcher, Highest Potential, Into The Future, Motivation, Magnify Your Purpose, Release, Valor
