There’s Nothing To Fear!

The Jonah complex is the fear of success which prevents self-actualization, or the realization of one’s potential. It is the fear of one’s own greatness, the evasion of one’s destiny, or the avoidance of exercising one’s talents. Just as the fear of achieving a personal worst can motivate personal growth, the fear of achieving a personal best can also hinder achievement.
Maslow states, “So often we run away from the responsibilities dictated (or rather suggested) by nature, by fate, even sometimes by accident, just as Jonah tried—in vain—to run away from his fate”.

No fear is too great for you to overcome. Within you lies the power to conquer them all. If you change your thoughts, your feeling and results will ultimately change too. The person who thinks he is able is able. Conquer your thoughts and you’ll conquer your fears.

There is an old African Proverb that states “When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.” Fear is your enemy within!
Be Encouraged…Be Blessed…Be Enriched…Be Authentically You!
