Fear of Success

I was honoured recently to facilitate a program in Ottawa at NATCON, the national conference of career practioners and career guidance counselors.

The topic of my interactive session was how to help clients overcome their fear of success and reduce self-sabotage tactics. This is surprisingly a common challenge. There are many reasons why people don’t wish to be seen as bigger, richer or more famous.

It was great to see more than 90 participants, a sell out crowd that included some willing to sit on the floor. I ran out of handouts and collected 50+ cards with a promise to send out the booklet electronically. As a newsletter reader I would love to offer you this document to download for free. If you would like a copy of the participant’s booklet then follow the resources link under the “Supporting Links” column to the right.

I have also provided for you a link below to a self scoring ‘fear of success’ test that you may wish to try for yourself and/or share with others. Please use it to enhance your ability to serve the world.
