Are you more afraid of failure... or success?
That sounds like a weird question, but it’s not.
Surprisingly, succeeding at something can be as terrifying as failure...
particularly around something like being wealthy, getting rich or having lots of money.
Becoming rich will change who you are for everyone
Because going from being a normal, ‘poor’, blue- or white-collar worker to being wealthy will change everything.
It will change everything for you and your life, but it will also change who you are for other people. It will change the way they see you and, quite possibly, it will change their whole attitude towards you.
Being 'poor' keeps you safe
At least, that’s one of the things you might be scared of. It was one of my blocks: I was afraid of being ostracised from my working-class extended family because I was now one of those rich, fat cats who have made their money on the back of the poor, downtrodden workers.
Journal about it
