We talk a lot about surviving failure. In my case, I had a much harder time surviving success.
When everything was messed up and I was facing defeat after defeat, I still persevered. You go on because you must. You hate your life, so you’re motivated to keep trying until you break through.
And then you do…
What happened next for me, was when the danger started. My low self-esteem and fearful mindset had me subconsciously thinking I wasn’t worthy. So of course I created sabotage behavior.
Fortunately I got over that and decided I was worthy. Then I got cocky…
Started to think I could cheat the universe. Act out on my addictions and get away with it. Start to think because I had made some money I was better than others. I became arrogant, insensitive and materialistic. And that’s not as much fun as it sounds like...
Fortunately the universe will always send you a wake up call when you need it. If you’re open to receiving it.
So how you doing?
Are you surviving failure? And more importantly, ready to survive success?
