the vast majority of business owners fear success more than they fear failure.

the vast majority of business owners fear success more than they fear failure.

I was offered the above statement by my mentor/coach (Christian Simpson) today. What a challenge! “Much of that fear is generated by the unhealthy attitude we secretly harbour towards financial wealth. I’m not questioning the wanting. Every business owner on this planet wants the kind of wealth that generates the lifesyle freedom we all aspire to. No, I’m questioning the believing. What do you really believe about financial wealth? How is that belief evident in your life today? What do you really believe about your worthiness of financial wealth? And how is that belief evident in your life today? Most well-intentioned, hard-working business owners are fighting a losing battle. It’s got nothing to do with the economy, competition and a lack of support from the banks, and everything to do with the contradictory forces that exist in their lives. On the one hand, there’s the blood, sweat, tears and hours of hard work. We entrepreneurs put a shift in. But hard work alone doesn’t make a millionairre. And on the other hand there’s the legacy of deep-seated ideas that have formed limiting belief systems – unsubstantiated, unconscious ideas that massively implicate results. There’s a lot of people who think positively and unknowingly believe negatively. ‘A house divided against itself cannot stand’.”
