    Great article and good advice – interesting that some of the reasons for fear of failure and success overlap.

    I haven’t thought of some of these. Now I’m more afraid of success. And yet, I can see the wisdom in fear of success. I’m not a success story, but I’ve grown stressed from seeking success. Maintaining success can lead one to neglecting his/her family. We have countless examples of celebrities who has obtained the level of success many desire, and yet still turns to drugs for comfort. In other words, it can be the unfulfilling. And if you read some of PewDiePie’s comment’s, he is a YouTube celebrity by the way, many people are jealous of him. But like you said, it’s the way you look at success. BTW, I think being a perfectionist is good just as you’re not obsessive.
