Success and Failure, Part 1 – Are you more afraid of success or failure? Success and failure most often go hand in hand even though we know that, we fear one and not the other, or we fear both.
Don’t you love it when you find a teacher who speaks your language and you just “get” everything they say? That’s what happened when I heard Dr. Wayne W. Dyer for the first time.
Doing something you have never done before can be simple, yet challenging. What do you think? Is it easy to do things for the first time? Some folks get a huge rush from it. I can’t say that I am excited every time I do something new. Now after I have done it, that’s a different story
Did you have to ask your boss for time off that day you had to be home to take care of personal business? Having to ask if it was ok if I came in late or left early to take care of stuff was uncomfortable for me to do when I was working for a company.

Personal Freedom – What does that mean to you? For a lot of us it means that we get to choose where we live, where we work, the people we hang out with, the kind of car we drive, how much we (do or do not) exercise, the amount of money we make. The list goes on and on.
Wouldn’t it be great to see some numbers that would tell you which type of posts your fans like best. Which posts do they share.

Doesn’t it feel good to be around people who are upbeat and positive? You can just sense that life is full of possibilities? Not just their life, but it spills over into yours as well.
Will you promise me something? Well, will you? Ok. Here it is. “Never give up on your dream.” Oh, you will likely have fear – either Fear of Failure or Fear of Success. You might worry about what you will do if you fail. Or, you might worry about what you will do if you succeed. Unless of course, you just let it go and believe in yourself.
Have you ever created a Vision Board? You might answer, “well, yes I have!” or you might say, “what in the world are you talking about”? Ok, it’s confession time.
