Our Deepest Fear

– Marianne Williamson

You may remember that rousing speech from the movie ‘Coach Carter’.

You may wonder what it has do do with this site — or business generally — in any way.

The fact is, a lot of people fail at business because they are afraid of success. They fear they won’t know how to handle it if and when it comes.

They fear they don’t deserve success.

I believe everything we do is pre-destined. Fate.

What does that mean?

It means whatever we get in life we are supposed to get.

We will get all the food, the cars, the houses, the clothes… in fact… all the luxuries, all the hardships, everthing… that has already been written for us.

And I believe if we are supposed to work hard to get it, then we work hard.

And, once we get it, we should know it was because it was our fate to get it.

The question is, what do YOU think?

Do you believe you deserve your fortunes, or your misfortunes, for that matter?

When you see someone rolling in the lap of luxury, do you think it’s unfair? Or do you reconcile yourself to the fact that it’s in his fate to be in that position?

Likewise, when you see someone suffering hardship, do you think it’s unfair that one person is in the lap of luxury, and the other is struggling?

Or do you reconcile yourself to the fact that that is his fate?

Maybe he’s got more in store for him in the future.

But, the real issue lies in this one simple question — do YOU feel you deserve success?

Because, if you don’t, chances are you won’t even bother to try.

And if there’s one thing you can be almost certain of, it’s that if you don’t try, there’s much less chance you’ll succeed.

So, stop telling yourself you don’t deserve success because, if you don’t believe in yourself, how can you expect others to?

You will only have yourself to blame.

So, the gist of this is, work hard towards success and, if and when it comes, don’t fear it. Embrace it. Know that it’s in your destiny.

And don’t forget where your success came from. For it is through that knowledge you’ll stay grounded.
