Fear of Failure is probably one of the biggest blocks and Upper Limits you’ll come across.
If this is a block for you in any way, whether it’s in Business, Relationships or success it will stop you in your tracks.
Fear of failing can prevent you from moving toward many things you want. It can literally sabotage you from your ideal Success in life.
What Fear Does
It creates that lovely fight or flight response. You either want to curl up into a fetal position or you want to fight it out.
But there’s one more part of that…
The Freeze Zone
In the middle of fight or flight is being frozen. You can’t move and are literally stuck. Think about the deer in the headlights analogy.
Fear can stop any movement especially moving forward. It definitely isn’t going to help you be productive in any way.
Your mind blanks out, your clarity is shot and any creativity goes out the window. Yep, it’s a cold place to be.
Dumb and Dumber
The Stress that fear creates dumbs you down. It can make you do stupid things. You may say dumb things you wouldn’t normally or you act in a way that is totally lame.
When you’re in the fear mode, it’s a good idea to pay attention to this, so you don’t make a lot of mistakes you’re sorry for later.
Fear has the lovely effect of creating another tag along emotions, like worry and lack of peace. It sucks the life out of you and increases all the negative feelings. That’s probably because of all the adrenaline coursing through your body, putting everything including emotions into hyperdrive.
Have you noticed when you are in a fear state your digestion gets screwy? Maybe you feel nauseas or you lose your appetite. Some people even have to hit the bathroom immediately. No fun!
Your body is trained to put all its energy into survival and that’s what the fight or flight response is commanding. Survival. …So it’s not worried about you stopping to eat a hamburger and digest it properly, it’s worried about that tiger that is hunting you down and the need to RUN!
You see your mind and subconscious doesn’t know if the fear you’re having is really life threatening or not. It just goes into survival mode shutting everything else down.
Your immune system included… So look out for that. If you’re constantly running in the fear mode, you have a very good chance of creating illness in your body in some way.
So what can be done?
I would highly recommend working on healing or clearing that fear in your life. I know it can be hard, sometimes next to impossible and that’s why I use Energy Techniques like The Emotion Code and my own specialized form of Energy work to flip that switch off for you. Then I can give you a Healing Code to do on yourself daily to infuse that new pattern of balance and keep it there.
That new pattern is what your new life will be created from.

I appreciate you being here girl! The help your blog gives to others is amazing! I’m honored you have visited mine <3
I often refer to fear as the dreaded 4 letter “F” word…it definitely can let it paralyze you if you let it. At times, when I’m feeling particularly strong and brave, I use my fear to fuel my desire for what I want and push through the resistance. Great way to break fear down into pieces and demonstrate how fear works its way in to so much of our lives – thanks Melissa!
I love that Stacey, “use my fear to due my fire” awesome! Thanks for being here!
I always appreciate your logs.. It’s good to know your trained o deal with feelings of fear, but thanks to the custom code an MUCH practice, I hope those feelings are gone for god.
Thanks Libby. I hear you <3
The only upside to fear is that when it reveals itself…then you know what needs to be released and it’s no longer hidden. We can’t heal what we don’t know is there! Thanks for the tools Melissa!
Absolutely Silvia, I think we just had a conversation on this one 🙂
You’re so right in how fear sabotages us. I’m currently witnessing my fear in one aspect of my business but I’m trying to be grateful for it and to take notice of what it’s illuminating for me. Hopefully I’ll be able to move past it with some action soon. Thanks for this Melissa!
I hope so Anne, Sometimes I need reminders myself. I’ll get thrown off course and then remember… Oh yeah, I’m supposed to learn something here 🙂
Fear can limit us from what we can accomplish. We need to overcome fear and move forward. Thanks for sharing and looking forward to reading more of your posts.
So true Sherill, moving forward can feel hard at times but so worth it.
