I was told years ago that fear of failure isn't really what stops most folks -- it's the fear of success... and I've come to believe that. Sure, we tend to be more aware of our fear of failing -- the pain involved with that is usually more tangible, the images more vivid. But that's part of the unconscious mind's brilliant way of keeping us from seeing the real fear. Success has all kinds of repercussions: higher expectations, possible jealousy from others and, the most dreaded of all, change. Failing seems like a cakewalk in comparison. But you deserve success, and the world deserves the difference you will make. I hope this video helps you start clearing those blocks.
As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing fear. Some folks may find their fear dissolves after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I always ask folks to take full responsibility for their own well-being before tapping. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.
Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapToFeelGood.com.
