Why is Fear the Key to Success?

Mar 14, 2008
In today's fast changing world, most people who have been adept when it comes to success and accomplishments, they contend that if human beings are endowed with just the feelings of sadness, anger, happiness, and fear, it is fear that is more likely to bring about success.

Not that every successful person is afraid of everything. This only mean that fear is the basic foundation of all decisions that trigger successful results. It is through fear that people are enticed to overcome whatever impedes them to do what they should have done in the first place.

In fact, surveys show that 80% of all choices that people make are based on fear. Most people do not choose what they want; they choose what they think is safe.

For example, when it comes to losing weight, fear keeps many people from addressing the emotional reasons why they eat and from looking from for a better way to handle those emotions.

Moreover, Phil McGraw, a known TV talk show host, insists that people do not get overweight just because of what they eat. They get overweight because of how, where, when, and why they eat.

In this concept, McGraw further explained that food is a coping mechanism; people are afraid of giving it up because then they feel confused and lost. But success follows when people will come to realize that they have to replace their destructive patterns with constructive ones that do not center on food.

In general, people who are successful are those who have learn to take risk. In the business world, those who earn more money are those who have learned how to take greater risk.

The concept of overcoming fear is based on the fact that people should learn how to get out of their "comfort zone." They have to shed out from the realm of comfort and shun away from the factors that make life easier for them.

The problem with most people in today's contemporary times is that they have the tendency to stay constrained in an area because they are afraid to take some actions. What's more, the fear of being rejected and the fear for failures make matters even worse.

In real sense, fear itself is not the main component in order for a person to be successful. It is what people do with their own fear that builds confidence and disposition that designs the track you have to take.

Hence, it is extremely important that you create an action that will correspond and overcome your fear. It is important to do some actions now before you have to let go of your fear. Otherwise, things will not change because the "trigger" is no longer present.

The point there is that fear stimulates a person to take some actions. It is that feeling of wanting to overcome the anxiety that envelopes one's personality. Fear is enough reason to make an individual think of something in order to produce positive upshots in life.

Fear makes you believe in yourself. It makes you push a little harder on things that you have not rendered some notable energy. In this sense, fear creates energy to keep you going. It is that inner voice that compels you to move, to do some action, and to continue strive harder.

For most successful people, being afraid of losing money or getting poor is the sole stimulating and motivating factor that makes them work hard and device more method that would drive them to success instead of failure.

In fact, most successful people and those who are optimistic in life contend that there are no such things as failures. What people think as failure is only a result of something that they forgot to do.

Indeed, it is so hard to overcome fear but when you have reached the point that you were able to overcome it, the gratification that you will get is more than enough to console yourself from taking that risky first step to success.

The world is not pulling for us to act differently, think differently, and choose differently. So, if you decide to be an agent for change and get that fear out of your system, you have to stay committed to getting what you want, and eventually, you will find your supporters and overcome what stood in your way.
