What is the fear of success?

Fear of Success Psychology explains why business owners won’t take the next step and leap into the unknown to create a successful company or lifestyle for themselves.

This fear of success is an ongoing fear of succeeding, to the point you can be inadvertently self-sabotaging your fortune. Although you’re capable of succeeding, your resistance is based on the fear of change that may come and the self-doubt of being able to keep up with your new lucrative income.

Reasons why people fear success:

  • Success is actually scarier than failure
  • You’re afraid of judgement
  • You’re afraid something bad is going to happen if you are successful
  • You are afraid of the changes you will need to make to be elevated to the next level of business

In this episode, we talk about steps you can take to circumvent the fear of success, such as:

  • How to accept and acknowledge your fear
  • When to take small, actionable steps
  • What to practice expanding on in your personal growth to combat the fear of success
  • Daily affirmations you can use to repurpose the negative energy associated with fear into a positive daily energy

Debt is NOT a Four-Letter Word

We've all been conditioned to believe that debt is a dirty word and that it comes with a plethora of negative connotations. What we need to keep in mind is that debt is another form of currency and abundance. Debt can be used to create tangible and physical for us in our personal and business endeavors.

When you come into debt through this journey, your result is always abundance. Even if you invest in coaches and perhaps don't get the results you want, you may have received the results you needed. There's always lessons to learn when we don't get what we want. Remember, you need to keep moving towards abundance, even if that means acquiring debt to get to your end goal.

Remember, when you’re moving forward in your journey to own your abundance. Remove your guilt and shame, move forward, and claim your abundance. Your energy needs to flow through the path of least resistance. Since we have all been raised in a world that operates on duality. Duality needs to exist for purposes such as the patriarchal paradigm to thrive. These ways can only thrive with our division. When we are divided as a human race, as a couple, sex, species, gender, culture, and community, these factions can exist and thrive.
Be a part of the movement towards abundance, your higher-self and a higher vibration for all of humanity!

Listen in to find out:

  • The four causes of debt shame and guilt
  • Why conscience debt is good for you
  • How to use debt to collapse timelines
  • Learning to ask for what you need
  • How to own your own brand of abundance
  • Leaving guilt and shame out of your life and replacing it with abundance

The two of us talk, in detail about money mindset. When you listen to this episode, you’ll find out that Harriette truly understands why money mindset is so important - “Money mindset is everybody's foundation at the moment.

While no one is perfect at achieving every goal and commitment, I'd say I am pretty good at it. Typically, if I say I'm going to do something, I do it. I want to give you some of my information in hopes that my advice will help you slay your goals, whether they are sales, business, money, or personal goals for 2021.

Make sure to choose a goal that benefits you or your business. Another issue people have in staying committed to their goals is that they choose plans meant to appease another person they may be trying to impress.

Consider what YOU want in your business or personal life. Be selfish in a good way and create a goal that revolves around your interest in having buy-in and being more driven to complete your goal. Remember, what works for other people may or may not work for you, so be sure to choose goals that are an excellent personal or business fit for what you want.

Listen in to find out:

  • How to choose your personal and business goals
  • Why you want to be selfish when choosing goals
  • How to align your goals with your vision
  • Why you should write your goals down
  • The benefits of using a planner
  • Advantages of having an accountability partner
  • Why you need to honor your commitments

Jan 5, 2021

I'm still super excited about 2021 because I feel a new energy in the air! I see things shifting, moving, and changing. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. Even though we don't have evidence that 2021 will be better than 2020, my intuition tells me that this year will be a game-changer for business.

A specific business goal with many of my members is to hit the six-figure mark in their company. To hit the six figures, an individual must complete an external level up along with an internal level up. To internally level up begins with an internal identity of whom we want to be. When a client wants to level up internally, I always ask them, 'What is the identity of a six-figure business owner?'

What decisions would they make? What would they invest money in? What would they invest there? What tasks do you want to do with your valuable time? How should you take action and make decisions from that place?

 

Listen in to find out:

  • How to level-up your business
  • Why living up to your potential is essential to being successful
  • My personal goal leveling up from a six to a seven-figure business
  • Questions I ask myself when leveling up my business
  • The process of working through your new business identity
  • Why focusing on your future is important when making current business decisions

Leadership Lessons in a Time of Crisis

 

This year's theme has been leadership, which is where the biggest lessons and growth opportunities have happened. Many times my growth opportunities have really pushed me out of my comfort zone. 

 

If you're in business, you'll end up in situations where you are taking a leadership role. There will be situations of crisis, hopefully not to the extent we've had in 2020 again. I make a joke that if we can get through this year, we can go through anything! Future challenges are going to be a cakewalk in comparison to 2020. 

Pay Attention to Variables You Can Control

If we paid attention and took care of variables we could control, we can have a very bright future. Throughout all of 2020, this is the approach my team took, and I'm very proud of how my team handled this chaotic year!

Listen in to find out:

  • Leadership lessons learned from 2020
  • Why money doesn’t trigger me anymore
  • How outsourcing is vital for company growth
  • Why you should focus on variables you can control

Gratitude for My Team and Tribe

This year, 2020, has been a hell of a unique year that's been embedded with lessons. Lessons that have pushed me to grow in ways that wouldn't have happened otherwise.

I am super proud of this community because we have grown like crazy this year. I'm also proud of my core team and Steve's production team, who edits this podcast. I also want to thank my sales team, whom I hired in April and was barely around to train them because I was so busy. They really stepped up to the plate and have come up with some very cool ideas for this community that has helped us grow so much.

I also want to express gratitude for my mentors this year, mentors as Michael Burt, Rachel Rogers, David Nagel. I mean, y'all really came through for me this year. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart! You deserve a round of applause!

One of the exciting things that I've learned is always to pay attention to your intuition. I started getting a sense about four years ago that I needed to make considerable changes to my business.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • Why you should always trust your intuition
  • The importance of acting on your intuition
  • Challenges associated with a year of uncertainty

People have a damn hard time sticking to goals. Most New Year's goals fade away for 80% of people after two to three weeks! Creating and sticking to your goals isn't an easy thing to do.

Of course, I will be a little tough on you and use words like 'discipline,' which isn't a word on your most-used vocabulary list. However, our focus is on achieving goals, which means you'll need the discipline to get what you want! However, you don't have to see discipline as a straight-laced authoritarian definition. I'll show you how to think about this concept differently and more invitingly.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • Why you should make your sales goals challenging
  • How to implement a reward system for yourself
  • What you can do to make your sales goals fun
  • The importance of setting a growth goal
  • Why you should stick to your decision
  • How I came about with my process of ‘seed planting’

Dec 1, 2020

This year has been on the top of my crazy list, with the most recent event being the presidential race. Several times throughout 2020, I have stood up and shared my beliefs and views, and if you didn't know, I voted for Joe Biden. I've publicly expressed my views on that, and I've also stood up to blatant and very unfortunate Injustices that we've seen in 2020.

Whether on the news, out in daily life, and in certain industries, some deplorable things have happened in the coaching and financial space this year.


People Haven't Stepped Up to the Plate for Social Injustice

People who have not stepped up to the plate? Audiences are not okay with that anymore. I bring this up because last week, while the election was going on, I was sharing election memes. I had expressed where I stood on the issues we were voting for when I had some DMs come into my message box. Many people were super supportive; however, I did have messages that asked me if I should really choose a political side. People asked me if I wasn't afraid that I would lose money, over-expressing my opinion.

Listen in to find out:

  • Why you should use your platform against social injustices
  • How speaking your mind can make you more money
  • When you should speak up
  • What my followers are saying about my political views
  • Why you shouldn’t stay silent about what you believe in
  • How to be a leader others can look up to

To scale my business, my team and I are still building out systems. We've added new modules to Persuade To Profit, hired an enrollment team, and to work in our community for our community. Why? Because I'm playing the long game.

Nov 17, 2020

One big mindset shift that has helped me in 2020 is getting over my fear of expansion. We are in a time of expansion because most people will get scared, and they're going to contract. They're not going to move because they are letting their emotions take over. As a result, they're probably going to make some bad decisions.

I'm going to decide to expand because it's in these moments of huge contraction that the top business owners decide to expand. How can they expand in these crazy times?

Listen in to find out:

  • How to expand your business in these crazy times
  • Why you shouldn’t play small
  • How you can be more comfortable with conflict
  • Why you need to create and stick to your mission

Nov 10, 2020

Despite everything going on, I believe we're sitting on the opportunity of a lifetime. We can't do all the stuff we like to do, such as traveling, getting my nails done, getting a massage, checking out a restaurant, or moving about freely without worry.

We are all stuck at home for the time being because of a pandemic. We are most likely never going to have an opportunity like this again in our lifetime.

Typical distractions are gone. We are currently experiencing a "new normal" phase, which is giving us the opportunity of a lifetime. Time is now being granted to us as we speak.

Listen in to find out:

  • What you should ignore in 2020
  • Action items you need to take right now
  • How you can create your future self today
  • What you should consider to make 2021 a great year
  • Three steps you can take to get to the other side of 2020

Nov 3, 2020

I've received two questions multiple times this year.

Question number one is "Amanda, how do I make sales right now when the world is on fire?"

Number two is, "How have I kept my company growing?" We've had more visibility than ever and never stopped enrolling clients.

Although our economic climate is a little crazy, our business keeps growing. We are onboarding our latest team members and taking in multiple five figures, not just in sales, but in cash revenue collected every month by launching cool projects.

When the whole shutdown over the pandemic happened, I went in to talk to my team that Monday morning. I said, "Suit up. This is war." General Amanda came out.

This past year has been one where you see who rises to the top and who crumbles. No one is safe. Who rises to the occasion, rises to the top, and comes out a winner?

Listen in to find out:

  • Leadership mindset and how it can work for you
  • How my team tackled the pandemic crisis
    What you need to know about having a winning attitude

People Don't Sell Because They are Afraid of Rejection

So many of us fear rejection. Although this is natural to fear, we don't have to take it so damn personally. Once you go through so many calls, you don't really care because rejection doesn't bother you anymore. Most people don't give themselves enough of an opportunity or put themselves in enough of those situations to get to that point of not caring about rejection. When you no longer give a shit, that's when you have conviction. At this point, you close more people.

The issue with people who are attempting sales is that as business owners, they go into sales calls like they're interviewing for a job, and that's not the way you do it at all. Learn how to grow your business with killer sales when you sign up for Persuade to Profit and get rid of your fear of sales!

Listen in to find out:

  • How you can sell without coming off as a sleazy car salesman

Oct 20, 2020

I definitely fear success, way more than I fear failure, which also leads to the feeling of rejection. You can move past rejection dragging you down by experiencing rejection a million times. The same rules apply to failure. Today, I'll dive into the fear of failure as many people struggle with this barrier.

What is the Fear of Failure?

What is the fear of failure, and how do people obtain this fear in their lives? People are afraid of judgment and what other people think of them. This bleeds over into business when you create your content for marketing your brand. Will people like what I created? Fear of marketing, sales, success, and fear of failure. One common denominator they all have is I'm afraid of what other people are going to think of me and my business.

Listen in to find out:

  • How imposter syndrome will stop you from succeeding
  • Why you shouldn’t live up to others expectations of you
  • How the school system sets you up for failure
  • Signs and symptoms you suffer from imposter syndrome

Oct 13, 2020

At least half of my clients encompass the fear of success. They are afraid of the expansion and growth of their company. I know this is something I struggle with, and I have a mentor who's helping me process my fear. I'd like to share some examples as to why people might fear success, along with tips and strategies that have helped me move past this fear.

Remember, challenges are also growth opportunities. They are an opportunity for you to be better and do better, to reach your potential because that is where the growth really is. Growth comes from challenge and being uncomfortable. Remember, if you have bigger problems, you are growing, and you are expanding.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • My fear of failure lesson
  • Why you and your business needs to move past this fear
  • How staying small can keep you broke
  • Why you need to ignore negative criticism and judgement
  • How you can thrive when you let go of this fear!

You listen to this podcast because you want to make money. With your goal of making money, one action item you need to really move on is to let others know you exist. Show people how you can solve their problems and let them know your shit is real!

Why You Need to Put Yourself Out There

Put yourself out there and just go for it. Stop living up to other people's expectations and creating actions that only create happiness in others. When you play to other people, you're just putting your own dreams on the back burner.

Resonate with Others to Get Results

Resonate with people to get the results you want to see in your business growth. Have you put content out there, and it hasn't worked? There are a specific method and action steps you put out there to make people move to buy your product. This action step is a skill you can learn, and we teach you that skill set in our course, Persuade to Profits.

Sep 22, 2020

There is a time and a place to use debt. Besides buying a home and student loans, debt can constructively be used to make a calculated move in your business.  

 

Let's stop listening to society about debt. Clearly, society doesn't know what it's doing, and that's why so many people have problems. Another false belief is that we think our entire lives revolve around our credit score. Although this is an integral part of your financial life, it's not your whole economic life.

 

What I Learned From Paying Off All My Debt

 

I was the person who would try and pay off all my debt in full every month. However, I didn't leave with myself with enough cash. And let me tell you when shit hits the fan, money is what's king, and cash is what matters. My lesson that I learned is that cash flow is more critical than your debt.

We're taught to pay off debt and to rid yourself of the shame of being in debt. So we use self-inflicted torture, such as eating rice and beans, to save as much money as we can to pay off our debt.

Listen in to find out:

  • The falsehoods society wants you to believe about debt
  • When you should take on more debt
  • How you can cut expenses to pay off debt
  • Collapsing time with debt
  • Why your home shouldn’t be your only debt
  • When you should not take on debt
  • Why you should stop torturing yourself by eating rice and beans

Certain aspects of building a business seem like they're very far away. However, you want to start thinking about these business elements to avoid problems and mistakes down the road. The earlier you start being proactive about specific business areas, the better off you will be in the long term.

Moving from self-employed to business owner and CEO is a transition of epic momentum, process, and energy. When done correctly, with the right mindset, it will set you up for ultimate business success.

Getting Into a CEO Mindset

I was getting into that CEO mindset, learning to leverage systems, my knowledge, and people.

When I created content for myself full-time instead of creating content for others, I ended up benefiting by making more money for myself than I did making content for other businesses. That was a switch - to build a business model that gave me more time.

Listen in to find out:

  • How to create a scalable business model
  • Why you shouldn’t wear too many hats
  • When you should hire a team
  • The mindset of a successful CEO
  • How creating a scalable company equates to more income

You may know someone who has become a coach because they've given others advice and are good at it. They may have fallen into coaching or consulting, and now they are trying to figure out how to make this a sustainable business. They may be trying to figure out how to build their online presence.

Many people join my Persuade to Profit program when they reach this spot. When they join, I hear many stories from what they've encountered with previous programs online. I listened to a story from a new member this morning, where she was a part of another business training program, and the sales tactics that they were teaching her were all about manipulation.

Why You Should Take Money Seriously

From the beginning, people are in business to make money, period! Some people get mad when I tell them they have to make money. I run a business, and I plan on helping a ton of people, which requires many resources. It would be best if you thought about this big picture from the beginning of your enterprise.

Many people do their business because they like it, but that's not a business. That's more of a hobby. So do you have an expensive hobby, or do you have a company? If you have a business, there is a focus on money and revenue.

I want you to start thinking about what types of resources you are going to need for the future because I want you to avoid problems in the future. I want you to start thinking about pricing yourself for profitability from the beginning.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • When you should scale your business
  • How to start growing your business
  • When you should hire someone for assistance
  • Devaluing yourself and why that hurts your business
  • Creating long-term business goals 
  • Why you have to take money seriously
