Fear Of Success...Have you been there?

Fear Of Success...Have you been there?

What's your recepie for success? I am starting this post with this question because I realized this about myself during the last few days. But first, I want to share the great little and amazing things have been happening to my real estate investing and personal growth since I started my journey on the new book. The recepies that Dean gives us on this book, are not for chicken noodle soup. But they are for a delicious and spicy beef stew. A stew that has all the necessary ingredients to be a delicacy. If you don't have all the necessary ingridients yet; you steel come out with a great recepie.

I have been doing and taking action on the ingridients I have available to me to put my delicious stew together and they're bringing results just liked Dean promissed and the students shared on the book.

My buyers list has increased to over 30 prospects and couple of cash buyers. But I was very over whelm seen this finally happening to me that, a fear came over me. I realized couple days later that it was not a fear of failure but of sucess. I guess when you go trought so many obstacles in life, that when success is emminent, it could scare you also.

Another fear I realized it was dealing with lawyers. You see, my last two experiences with lawyers were very negative to my life. A divorce and a bankruptcy, all in that order.

But God new what I needed. I used the strategy that Indiana Joe and his wife shared on the last video blog with Dean and I used it that same night. As a result a realtor agent contacted me about the property I inquired saying it was on contract but he had others properties he wants to show me. It was the perfect agent I was looking for. I have an appoinment Tuesday about two properties with good potential. No only that, he's putting me in contact with a lawyer that their company deals with, so it seens that that isssue is taken care of. Because I need one to do my assigments.

In seeing the results of the two ladies on the book, Sandra and Libertha, has inspired me tremendeously. I realized that I don't have to be afraid of success anymore. I just have to take action and little steps but those little steps are bringing me closer to my dream.

I lost a marriage to financial debt and I refused to go trought that again. I have to do this for the sake of my family and myself.

Again, Im sorry for such a long post, but I hope it will encourage someone outhere. This website is a great therapy for me. Being able to share with The Dean Family.

with my love and respect,



Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

well able. I will see my dreams come to pass."

Fear of success


I experienced the same fear when I started. It was not the fear that someone would hang up on me or tell me I was nuts but rather a fear that they would continue to talk to me and be willing to work with me. Hanging up on me would have been easy to digest but if they kept listening I would have to keep talking and then put a deal together. Now that scared me!

One Step leads to another step and then before you know it you are running the REI marathon!!!

My husband is part Choctaw Indian and his family is from Oklahoma. Though I have never been there I heard it is beautiful.

Here's to your success!


Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

I have felt that fear....

Dear Max,

I totally understand how you feel and I have felt that fear, too. I have been studying and learning and I noticed that I seem to be making excuses to take the next step. I keep delaying or finding a way to be too busy, I don't know why. (Also, I think that I move slowly being a person that needs to understand everything before I make a move.)

I needed to make a phone call to this other investor that I have met in my area (one of the first FSBO phone numbers I called some months ago) and I wasn't sure why I kept hesitating. Maybe because I know he is much more experienced than me, but I know If I start getting a buyers list I could bring them to his properties. And I know if I get a property under contract that he could also take it to his buyers list. This would be a good start for me, a sort of mentor. Yesterday I had to stop and ask myself "What is the problem? What are you afraid of?". I finally made the phone call. I ventured out and met up with him today as he was in my neighborhood doing his own open house and it was a very good meeting.

Dean once said (somewhere) "Over analysis causes paralysis". Sometimes that is my brain on information overload. I have to stop and focus and find my direction.

I'm ready, I can do it and so can you.


Max, I experienced it too

Hi Max. You know we are here to support you. Remember we learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others. Everyone have the ability to do great things that will finally lead to success. You have what it takes. I am happy that Lubertha, I and many others on this site have inspired you. I have to say the same also. I was not only inspired by others, but also mentored. All you need is your first deal and all others will fall into place. All the best and God Bless.
