Fear of failure vs fear of success

Because meditation rocks!

Topic: Fear of failure vs fear of success

The path to success at anything in life passes through many fears. The most famous fear is the fear of failure, which develops as we become socially aware. 

The fear of failure is the fear that we will not "make the grade" and will not be accepted socially. 

Many people are not aware this fear has a twin brother - the fear of success.

    Many thanks all for a great session and for all your contributions. This is the wonderful quote that I was mentioning: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

      Hello Sigal. The meditation class is in a clinic setting and it is not possible to bring your dog...I'm sorry about it, I'm sure it would be so much nicer for everybody to have also some animals around....maybe some other time, during the summer, when we can do the class outside...Kind regards, Ela

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
