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.

I was reading a newsletter from The Tapping Solution and I thought you would benefit from the information. The article was written by Nick Ortner on releasing the negative emotions that come from incidents that happened in our childhood or even the not so distant past.


Nick tells about an incident from his past and about how to use the Movie Technique. I often use this technique when doing visualization but this is a great way to release negative feelings about things that happened in the past.


Nick’s article got me thinking about embarrassing situations that happened in the past that could contribute to feeling uncomfortable in the spotlight of leadership. Do you remember any times when you were doing a book report or some other presentation in front of the class and you messed up? I remember one time during a junior high public speaking class we were doing impromptu exercises where we had to speak without notes on a subject. When it was my turn to speak, my mind went blank. I couldn’t remember anything about what I was supposed to talk about so I just started talking about something unrelated. It was sheer babbling to fill time.


I remember another incident where one of my friends tripped on microphone cords and fell off the stage. Several people laughed. Somehow that affected me, even though it happened to my friend. Ever since then, whenever I have to go on stage I am worrying about tripping or falling in some way. I also worry for my friends when they are going on stage.


I appreciate Nick Ortner’s post. I will reflect on my past and do this EFT technique to clear the negative emotions around those incidents.


Think about things that happened to you or things you witnessed in your past. Are there any of those things causing you uncomfortable feelings now?


Here is a clip about that technique from The Tapping Solution’s blog:


    Tapping Tip: Tapping Out Your Captain Kangaroo Experience


    Here’s an easy three step process to clearing an event from the past.
    1. Pick the event.
    Try to be as specific with it as possible and only start with one for now. You can do more later, but now, focus on ONE experience where someone said something to you, where you said something, where you learned that it wasn’t safe to stand out and be YOU.


    2. Rate the intensity of what happened.
    When you think about the event, feel what you felt then or even what you feel now about it, and rate the intensity on a 0-10 scale.


    3. Start visualizing the event as a movie.
    With your eyes closed, tap through all the points, as you see the movie play. Keep tapping through the points, moving whenever you want, and running the movie again and again, in as much detail as possible, See it, feel it, smell it, hear it, make it real and keep tapping. Notice what stands out to you most about the movie, and focus on that issue. Notice where you feel a ‘charge’ and focus on that, and just keep tapping, tapping, tapping.


    Tap until you can see the movie, without feeling an emotional charge.


    What have you done? You’ve healed that event, cleared the emotional charge, processed the stuck energy through your body, reminded your body it’s safe!


    Rinse and repeat for any events that you can think of! (I made this joke before, “rinse and repeat” referring to what the shampoo bottle says. Someone took it very literally and emailed asking if they should shower in between each tapping session! It’s actually not a bad idea, water is very cleansing, but you don’t have to do it between each tapping round. 🙂 )
