Fear of Success & Fear of Failure Will Keep You Stuck TPS193

TPS193I was talking to someone who is stuck on a low-paying job. He’s had a large deal pending for one of his inventions, but it fell through. It was a big blow. As a result, he hasn’t tried again because of his fear that something similar could happen again. Never really dealt with the pain of the experience.
