Fear of Success...

It is absolutely startling to me how many people fear success…
Yep…afraid of success…
Now let me say right out the gate…
Success is defined for and by the individual…
I personally know many folks who live modest, yet spirit filled lives…
Who are happy and have no delusions of grandeur…
I applaud them…
The folks I am talking about are those who profess…
To want a certain kind of success…
And have what it takes to achieve it…opportunities…education…
You know the ones…
They complain every time someone in the office is promoted…
Saying, “I knew I would never get the job it will always go to the…favorite…
The black woman”...whatever…
Then you discover they never even filled out an application or turned in a resume…
Huh?
Or the young person who flits from job to job…
As soon as it looks like they are going to move up…
They move out…
Then complain about ‘starting over’…
I am not sure why that is…
But my guess is…
This…
When you are promoted…
Receive accolades…
Placed in a ‘grown person’s' role…
There are certain expectations…
Requirements…
Rules and regulation that go along with it…
So if you can talk about wanting it…
But do nothing about having it…
That comfort zone called inertia…
Is a pretty good place to reside…
But just know this…
Some of us get tired of hearing you talk about it…
When we are trying to be about it…

In some ways you are opening my eyes to my secret chamber. I have that issue I think to some degree. Keep writing the things that are opening my eyes. I appreciate it.

Much respect and love
