Women aren’t always very confident. When it comes to careers and business, there’s often something holding people back. It could be that you don’t even realize you’re sabotaging yourself. But it’s got to stop. Because women are changing the world. Women are talented. And women must start believing in their achievements. I’m trying my best to embrace this statement! But I get scared – how about you? Maybe you’re scared of making it. Because, as humans, it’s natural to be in a state of lack, to think that suffering is normal. But it’s not. And it’s okay to work hard and find success. So, overcome the fear of success and get to work on your big, bold, and ambitious business and career dreams. I’m doing the same. Face your fears by embracing the following points.
Be Positive to Overcome Fear of Success
First of all, something that is absolutely important, is for you to make sure that you’re being as positive as you can be at all times. Because when you’re in a positive and happy frame of mind, you’re going to be able to believe in yourself and actually start to make waves with your future.
Surround Yourself with Smart People
Next, you need to make sure that you have all of the right people around you. It’s not enough to be your own source of positivity and self-belief if you’re constantly beaten down by others. Because the people you surround yourself with matter.
It’s important to be around people that are positive and smart and that can add value to your life. As then, they can help you to grow, face your fears, and believe in yourself too.
The next thing to do to overcome fear of success is to make sure that you’re always trying to enrich your mind. Because if you want to do something with your career or business, then you need to be always learning. This could be taking a course, it could even be getting an accredited online MBA, or reading. When you’re always learning and picking up new skills, then you’ll have much more confidence in yourself and your abilities.
Follow Your Passions
One of the best ways to face your fears and to start believing in yourself is to follow your passions. Because if you’re scared or you’re holding yourself back, you can often forget all about that by just focusing on the work – on doing what you love. And before you know it, you’re getting somewhere.
Have a Fear of Success? Let It Go
And, finally, if you are holding yourself back for any reason, it’s now time for you to let it go. Don’t think you’re worthy? Parents or past relationships made you self-conscious? Feel like a fraud even though you’re not? Shake it off and let it go.
It’s time to walk away and start to do something with your life. So just let go of it all. Put yourself first and believe in your abilities. When you do so, magic can happen!

Imposter syndrome is real and affects so many women! Great article!
It really is something we need to address. Thanks Jamie!
Awesome Read! Building our confidence by being a constant learner is so important. A must read for all!
That means a lot to me!
Loved this article! Super encouraging and I very much appreciated it! ❤️👊
Loving your enthusiasm!!
love this encouraging message.
A little encouragement can go a long way, hopefully :)
It was supposed to read, ‘I’m not looking for pitty.” See I can’t even do this right. LOL
I’m looking for petty honestly when I say, I may as well be a ghost. LOL I’ve been an entrepreneur my entire adult life, but this social media thing is tougher than I imagined. Nice as usual!
Social media is a maze but just stick to a few networks where your audience is most and try to learn the basics of them ;) We can’t be everywhere online so best to focus!
I meant, I’m not looking for petty. LOL thanks for the tip.
Love this! 🦋
Great post! I find all your tips useful, esp. “continually learn”, which we tend to ignore.
The passion for learning is something that some people lose as they get older but I never want to lose that!
Wow, this is really great!!
Great tips Christy and an important blog for women! I would add to the list to embrace your fear. Sit with it and breathe. It is often our resistance, or our fear of the fear that keeps us stuck. Once you accept the fear, it moves on its way. xx
Great words, Lisa! You always offer solid advice xo
Great words of encouragement we all need to hear repeated from time to time, Christy!
think you have dictated the basic rules for all women to excel in the world of men. Today they set a pattern in society and your criteria will help them to continue fighting.
I hope one day for equal opportunity and yes one day at a time :)
This was an excellent post! I can personally confirm that when a woman tries all these things in her life, she feels like a success even before material or career success has happened. I am on my way to great things, but I haven’t achieved them yet. Because I employ these techniques, though, I already feel like a winner! So they are good for a person’s mental state as well, and I truly don’t believe women employ them enough. Again, great post, very inspirational.
Your comment helps me realize that we all have our struggles and we can achieve more by believing in ourselves. Thanks for such a great comment!
Fantastic post, Christy. I needed to read this today! I have had fear of success, but have also learned ways to overcome it and persevere. Thank you!
I’m cheering you on, Laura Beth!
Yes girl!! Get it!!
Woohoo!! Cheering you on too :)
I think we all sometimes need a little reminder of this! Thank you for reminding me!
So pleased by your response as I try to help others with these posts. Thanks!
when you’re in a positive and happy frame of mind, you’re going to be able to believe in yourself and actually start to make waves with your future.
I need to tattoo this on my person, and look at it often.
Often words of wisdom are easy on the tongue but hard on the heart.I believe we all are aware and due to christy we are reminded to act apon it.Thanks for the alarm
Reminders when gentle can really hit home. Thanks Zaina.
Sometimes I write down important phrases and put them in places I’ll see them, like by my computer. HUGS, Damyanti :)
Wise words, Christy. Thank you for sharing!
Thanks Julie ~ Wishing you an awesome week!
You’re welcome, Christy! Have an awesome week as well.
