The Fear of Success

During my daily walk today, I was listening to an episode of the Tropical MBA podcast.

One of the most interesting tidbits I found was that while we normally hear people talk about their fear of failure, the opposite is often overlooked.

The fear of failure can be tangible and easily expressed.

The fear of success can sometimes reside deep inside our minds, without us being able to even become aware that it exists. That it may be hindering us from achieving the success we seek.

What is it in success that I fear? Are these fears preventing me from taking action towards that success?
