November 25 “One of our biggest problems is not overcoming failure but properly managing success.” ~~~Dr. E. Devey Smith Jr.

I will admit I am afraid of success. I ask myself what frightens me so much about it and what comes back is: I’m not sure I can continue successful acts! The evidence is there to show me that I can now trust myself to lose two pounds, to stay away from the man texting me who only wants sex from me, to get the cover story published in a local newspaper I write for. It’s all good! Good never felt safe for me. In my mind, “something” is always going to happen to ruin the good feelings. This comes from a faulty programming of growing up in an alcoholic household where playing a game would turn into abuse.

Today I am reprogramming myself for success. I will trust myself to know that being successful is my true nature.
