You’re fear of pride keeps you from success and happiness

As many of you know I am almost finished with my first book “A cop’s guide to overcoming fear.” I am working with an amazing editor on the book so that when I deliver it to you it is something you can really use to overcome fear in your life. Plus I like the title that my friend Joe Vitale and I brainstormed on and he helped me come up with. I mean, who can resist reading “A cop’s guide to overcoming fear?”

Anyway as I have been working with the editor she shared this amazing and deep thought process that she deals with. I bet you have or are dealing with something like this in your life…. Oh, before I can share what she said I must give you a definition, Hubris. I must tell you what it means, because I did not know, so according to the Google dictionary…

Hu.bris noun /’(h)yoobris/

1. Excessive pride or self-confidence

2. (in Greek tragedy) Excessive pride toward or defiance of the gods, leading to nemesis

So basically its excessive pride. Now without further ado, here are my editors amazing statements.

…”The other fear that’s connected to this is the fear of hubris. Who am I to think I can run things better? Who am I to step outside the lines and take initiative? Who am I to aim higher and go after what I want? When you puff yourself up and brag about what you can do, the gods knock you down hard on your butt, so heaven forbid I have confidence in myself – that’s just inviting tragedy.”

Wow, is that powerful to you? Your pride is keeping you from being successful. You are afraid, you have fear that if you are prideful you will get knocked down. The fear of being beat up if you are successful. The fear of others judging you because you are successful. The fear of taking initiative because you are no one, a no body, not in charge. The fear that someone else can do it better.

If these fears were really true, then no one would ever succeed. We all, from time to time, live our lives by reacting to our environment instead of acting on our environment, and that is what these fears do. They make you live in reaction instead in assertive direction.

I can totally relate to her openness. I have seen it in my life, and I see it daily in others lives as well. So how can we overcome all of this? I have some great methods on how to do that, but before you can overcome you must understand what you are overcoming so today I’m just focusing on understanding what’s holding you back. I’ll close with repeating her statement so you can analyze it again and see if any of this is holding you back. Love JC
