You become very predictable when you are in fear. It doesn't
matter what kind of fear, success or failure. Your neuro pathways will be
triggered in the same way and you will recoil. That's why there is no
difference between fear of failure and fear of success, two sides of the same
coin. You will avoid situations where you could be successful as well as a
failure. One thing you notice is that excitement has the same neuro pathways
than fear. You can't have excitement without fear. But the fact that the same
neuro pathways are triggered becomes a problem. The closer you get to success
the more you fear it. If you have played video games you might have already
experienced this. The closer you got to the end of the game, the more excited
you became but also fearful. You don't know what will happen if/when you succeed.
Then it is fear all over again taking over. If you avoid excitement because it
reminds you of fear, you avoid success in the process.
 Fear of Getting a Whole New Identity
If you win, you might become a winner. If you put winners in
society on a pedestal, you are also feeding your fears of becoming one. If you
are on a pedestal, you might be too visible. People might decide to take pot
shots at your head. In other words you fear becoming a target. You worry with
this new identity you might turn into something you don't like, or your family
won't like. Part of the change is to leave your old self behind. For becoming
new the old you must die. What if you don't like what you become?
To curve this, try to leave scarcity mentality behind. You
can always go back and slip into your old shoes of being a loser. That
possibility will still be there when you take on the new "winner"
identity. Get excited about discovering this new emerging you about to be born.
In other words, you need to step into your power, no matter how scary and take
charge. Be careful, you might like it. You see students stepping into their
power on program. Once they get rid of their fears, they become bold,
aggressive and nonchalant about success. They find out they are not losing anything
but adding.
Failing is Easy
You might want to stay with the familiar, failure. You know
it inside out. It doesn't bother you anymore. You learned to live with it. But
you are afraid you won't be able to handle success. You are entering uncharted
land. You are afraid of the stress, pressure and demands success can bring. It
is ok to fail small, but not big. Big fat success attracts too much attention
and scrutiny, so does big fat failures. The closer you get to success, the more
your mind will try to screw up your performance so you don't have to deal with
the unknown. How many times you have heard a guy saying, "I was about to
pull a girl when....."failure"? It reminds of those ball players who
fall down when they are about to score. Subconscious is too powerful.
You don't think you are up to the challenge.
To navigate those fears, you might want to think that it
took a lot of energy to live with failure, and that energy can be used
alternatively to live in success. In other words, if you can handle failure,
you can handle success. You will have to make a few adjustments but you will
live. Also keep in mind, success comes with big fat bonuses of increased
confidence,  quality relationships and
enjoyment of life.
Be Like Cristiano Ronaldo!
My favourite soccer player by far today. He embodies  a winning mentality. He is famous for
performing better while taunted by the crowd. The worst thing that can happen
to him is to be ignored. He plays better when he has the spotlight and the
pressure. That's how winners are made. Nothing motivates him more than
thousands of people chanting against him. He revels in it.
Can you enjoy the pressure of success? Can you deal with the
attention and the challenges? What's wrong with you? Do you put off things that
you know will lead to success? on purpose? What don't you want to find out? Are
afraid to stop being average?

 Two things:

-Ozzie kind of sounds like Christopher Walken.

-I feel like he has never been angry a day in his life.  He's so calm in every video.

Really solid vid man!!

I loved the shots of Holland I miss that place, and loved how cohesively the failure content was laid out.

Yeah that resonated.

I would add that we are intrinsically terrified of losing our identity, which I assume is evolutionary.

You have to go full Tyler Durden and pull the fucking trigger.

content is really really good, success barriers are a very real thing and self - sabotage too

i think the solution is to 'buy in' like tyler says by smaller and bigger accomplishments

also seeing how success is done, looks and feels like in person with your own eyes is really powerful as well

so finding people who already live your goal (or some part of it) is super powerful

and having a Mastermind to talk to and to see that you're not the only guy who goes through that

They key to success in business: Business leaders/Executives are exceptionally disciplined in managing their work-life, they are also stressed to the limit and they tend to put all their efforts towards their jobs.
