Fear of Success

by Tellman Knudson

Do you know anyone with a lot more “Potential” than they are realizing in their life?

I remember in school growing up I always heard “You’ve got so much potential”…

TRANSLATION: “You’re smart, but can’t seem to get anything accomplished”…

The funny part is, looking back on it, most of the people that said that were teachers in public school that I didn’t have a whole lot of respect for…

I don’t know about you, but I know quite a few people in my town here who fit that same description.

They are smart.

They have energy.

They aren’t bad people…

But for some reason they aren’t living up to what I see as their “True Potential”…

Why is that?

As it turns out, there are several reasons.

I asked 250,000 people on my email list (you’re probably filled out the survey) about the biggest thing that was holding them back from being more successful.

Here’s what I learned about some of the things that folks struggle with who KNOW they could accomplish more…

1) Fear of Failure

2) Procrastination

3) Can’t Focus

4) Fear of Success

5) Can’t Finish Projects

6) Poor Self Confidence

Those were the “Big 6″ reasons people gave me…

So why do so many people suffer from those issues?

Some folks say it’s just “who I am”…

Other people blame it on their parents and “poor upbringing”…

Yet, others blame it on their job, their boss, their financial situation… or even their spouse.

Take another look at that list.

Notice *WHERE* all those problems take place.

Where does Fear of Failure happen?

Where does Procrastination happen?

Where does Focus (or lack thereof) occur?

Where Does Fear of Success happen?

Projects? Poor Self Confidence?

They all happen INSIDE your own HEAD.

The things that hold all of us (no one is immune) back from being as successful as we want to be…

IN ANY AREA OF OUR LIVES…

Isn’t outside of ourselves.

It’s inside of us.

Without a doubt… Our outside influences do shift and change the way we deal with the world.

The people we spend time with has a HUGE IMPACT on how we think and behave.

Our habits and thoughts from childhood make up a MASSIVE amount of our unconscious decisions…

Our Parents, Our Partners/Spouses, or co-workers…

Even the TV shows we watch, the emails we read…

The books we read…

All that stuff changes the way we handle the world around us…

But there’s only one way to take control of your own mind.

There’s only one way to change your own habits.

There’s only one way that I’ve found to specifically change the way you react to ANY situation for the better.

And that one way was something I discovered by chance in college when I was studying the brain.

I got BAD grades in high-school because I couldn’t make myself finish projects (and rarely got ANYTHING done on time)…

I didn’t have many friends…

I was miserable most of the time, and was “angry at the world”…

But at one point in college everything changed.

It changed when I learned how to influence my own mind directly – and get it to start thinking, feeling and behaving the way I wanted it to…

Instead of the way it had been “programmed” to by other people…

By other situations….

By circumstances outside of my control…

I learned how to finally “take the reigns” of my own brain…

And started getting straight A’s…

And started my first business…

And ran on a National Level Cross Country Running team all at once…

That is how I discovered Hypnosis.

Hypnosis changed my life.

I used it to re-program my brain so that I could feel good about starting lots of projects…

And partner up with people who were good at finishing projects…

It helped me to stay motivated, even when things go wrong…

It helped me to stop caring about people who I didn’t respect who said “you have so much potential”…

And start seeing what my own True Potential is…

So I could start going after what was truly important to ME – not to them.

I started measuring my own progress…

And stopped caring about how I “measured up” against other people.

(That’s called Self-Confidence, BTW).

So, when people ask me what Hypnosis is used for – I say,

“Hypnosis is used to make YOU Better at what you’re meant to be!”

So, what are you going to use Hypnosis for first?

Let’s do a session together today.

SHABAMBO!
