Fear of Old Age May Stop You From Being The True You

The Fear of Old Age is a fear that encompasses most of the six major fears. The fear of criticism, fear of ill health and fear of dying are all symptoms of the Fear of Old Age. The Fear of Old Age has nothing to do with the level of success that you can achieve in business. Napoleon Hill writes about the six major fears in “Think and Grow Rich”. The other minor fears are all a subset of the six major ones. It is never too late to be successful in business no matter the age. When people become older society dictates that they should be a certain way. When you get older in our society you are expected to retire and travel the world.

They are some people that no matter the age there are always in the right mindset and are still parachuting out of a plane and don’t miss a beat. I am not discussing those people in this article I am talking about people who allow “old age” to interfere with them being the person that were always meant to be. These people as they are entering the era of “old age” might feel a combination of the six major fears. Your confidence might falter a little due to the fact that you might not be as active as you were a few years ago.

The fear of criticism might start to rear it ugly head, because now you might hear people say “you look good for your age”. You might tend to feel more self conscious about your physical appearance, sexual prowess and mental faculty. You are more concern about being ill health or diseases possible deteriorating your body. The older you get the closer that you feel you are to dying, so therefore you might not take as much chances as you did when you were younger. If you control your mindset all of these fears may be overcome. The opportunity to achieve the level of success that you want in your business of choice will open up. When you enter retirement it should because you want not, because you are expected or forced to retire.

The Fear of Old Age can defeated easily be being careful with the thoughts that manifest in your mind. You may have success at any age and any time period of your life. Our thought become our destiny; if you spend time thinking about death then guess what you will be that much closer to death. My grandma is eighty-nine years old and she sometimes makes me nervous when she speaks like if death is upon her. I would love her to live to at least a century, but I am obviously biased. If my grandma was not truly inflicted with illness I would love to know that if she wanted to be semi-retire and with the right attitude she would be able to do it. This fear has nothing to do with you continuing being a vibrant, contributing and outstanding member of society. Forget about it and live your life the way that you choose.

How to Overcome the 6 Super Fears That Are Destroying Success in Your Life, Business & Relationships?

Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” discusses the 6 six most common fears that are destroying our success in life, business and relationships.  These super fears may be the single most cause of many failing businesses or people never even attempting a business. These fears appear in many different forms such procrastination, staying within the box, easily influenced, etc. You may be ridden by one or more of the following 6 common fears as listed below:

1. Fear of poverty
2. Fear of criticism
3. Fear of Ill Health
4. Fear of loss of love of someone
5. Fear of old age
6. Fear of death.

All other fears are of minor importance and can be grouped under these six fears. The good thing is that we are normally not afflicted by all of them at once. These fears or in any combination could stop you in your tracks when it come to succeeding in your life and business. When you have fears that are paralyzing and hindering you from achieving success in your life, relationships and businesses, then you must overcome these fears to succeed. The fear of poverty is the very first one I will discuss in this article and the others in subsequent articles.

Poverty is a crippling fear that a majority of the masses suffers from. The current state of The Economy has everyone running scared. We are seeing an increased in violence, neglect and excuses among other things. If I had a dollar every time someone says to me I am not succeeding because of the economy, I would be a billionaire. Poverty is a state of mind, yet it has enough power to destroy a person chance to succeed in life and business. This state of mind fundamentally annihilates the ambition of a person before they even take his or her first step to riches.

There are a number of symptoms of this fear such as indifference, indecision, doubt, worry, over caution and procrastination. If you are stricken with all or some of these symptoms, then how are you going to make the necessary changes? The first step to riches is desire, but before that you have to the right mind set. Our thoughts determine our words, words determine our actions, actions determine our habits, habits determine our character and our character determines our DESTINY.

Our thoughts therefore control our destiny in life so therefore, the best way to overcome our fear of poverty is to control our thoughts. When you are in control of your state of mind, then you would be able to rejuvenate your ability to reason. You would therefore have a renewed enthusiasm towards succeeding and taking the initiative to change your state of mind aggressively. You would only take actions that will be conducive to your success in life and business; thereby indirectly you would be in control of your destiny.

Personal Development is another method that you can use to help you embark on your journey to control your state of mind. Personal Development will help you eliminate those limiting beliefs and thoughts that are holding you back from achieving your riches in life and business. Riches are defined on an individual basis from one person to the next. Some people define riches as money, status, power and for others it might simply be gratitude. The fear of poverty must be broken immediately to prevent future generation from being afflicted with it.

Fear of Ill Health:A Hindrance to Your Success

Fear of Ill Health is one of the six fears that Napoleon Hill discusses in “Think and Grow Rich” and you might wonder how does this fear relates to business. Would it surprise you to know that it does impact your performance in the business environment?  The first step in achieving riches is desire, but you must first cultivate your thoughts and mindset.  .

Fear of disease is a subset of Fear of Ill Health and may affect people in profound ways. Fear of disease produces physical symptoms when there isn’t the slightest cause for fear. The thoughts that you develop in your mind may lead to an inferiority complex that limits your performance in business.  Hypochondriac are the main reasons why patent medicines is booming, the vast majority of people going to the doctor truly have nothing wrong with them.  This fear manifests into very physical and mental repercussions.  If you don’t feel like you are physically fit, then you might not push yourself to the limit to accomplish a major goal.

When you feel inadequate, and you become focused on what happens if death overtakes you, how do you overcome it? The best way to eliminate this fear is by taking care of yourself physically, mentally, eating right and using effective preventative medicine.  We must enjoy our lives and we can’t go through life fearing everything.  We must focus on the things that we can control and let go of those that we have no control over. The things that I can control are exercising regularly, eating right and going to the doctor for my annual checkup.  I also will take the tests that are for my age groups even if it is uncomfortable. You must overcome the fear of ill health to make your business successful.

Fear of ill health leads to a physical and mental laziness that could impact your business in a negative way.  If you are in the process of solving a problem, but just when you are close to solving it you stop to irrational fears.  Maintaining a positive mindset has a lot to do with feeling that you are physically and mentally ready to overcome all challenges.  Even Superman has a weakness of Kryptonite that once he was exposed to it, he was unable to performed superhuman feats. The slightest imperfection in your psyche may lead you to personally sabotaging your success.

You must be present mentally in your business to accomplish your goals and objectives. If you have anything holding you back, then your business will not grow to its’ full potential.  Napoleon Hill talks about definiteness of decisions as a leadership attributes that will help you improve your business but because of your fear of ill health you are  respond slow in your decision making process.  The successful leaders are quick to reaching a decision and slow to change it.  Another attribute is unwavering courage and if you easily influenced by others which causing you to make plans that does not work.  Your business will continue to suffer so you must eliminate the fear of ill health.
