Inkandescent Coaching

Are you afraid of success? If so, you aren’t alone. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Director of DARPA, Dr. Regina Dugan, argued that “you can’t lose your nerve for the big failure, because the nerve you need for the big success is the exact same nerve.”

Dugan sheds light on the discussion of what it takes to get ahead, adds Russell Bishop, an author, consultant and executive coach.

“You do need to be able to stomach the downside potential of any move you make to get ahead, even if it’s as simple and mundane as the risk you assume when you get behind the wheel of your car,” he says. “However, when confronting the myriad challenges we face in life, one oft-overlooked limiting factor might just be what some have called the ‘fear of success.’ Fear of success and fear of failure can be very closely aligned. On the surface, this notion might seem ridiculous — what on Earth could be scary about success? But if you dig a bit below the surface, you might discover some powerfully limiting aspects of your own mindset, of your own approach to life.”

At Inkandescent Coaching, our mission is to help you leapfrog over your fears and embrace the live you’ll love — the one that lives in your business plan, and our heart.
