Ep #10 | How to Turn Fear Into Your Opportunity
Do you have a fear of success?
Can you handle failures, or are you afraid to make mistakes? Are you afraid of succeeding or fear what might happen when you don’t? The fear of success might sound crazy to many but it’s real. In episode #10 of “Raw and Unscripted,” the master motivational coach Christopher Rausch talks to us about the many ways we sabotage ourselves when it comes to success.
Fear of success is a semblance of fear that happens when people fail to perform at their best because they fear success will lead to disappointment.
Most of us are going to feel this way because of the way we were raised, or we just give up on the first try. Listen here as Christopher talks about the many ways, we sabotage ourselves that keep us from achieving success. – (audio) 2:02

Think of all the things you could accomplish if you weren’t scared of the outcome. As Christopher says, “We stay in our short-term gratifications again versus the long-term results”. Changing your perception is key to moving forward to get out of our comfort zone. – (audio) 5:29

Where do you want to be? What is your life going to look like years from now?

This is where Christopher tells us why we need to get out of this mindset. – (audio) 12:11
