Driving with John Chow – Episode 29 The Fear of Success

On this, the 29th episode of Driving with John Chow, I take out the Lexus to talk about the fear of success. Now you might be wondering why anyone would be scared of success. Isn’t that what we’re all trying to achieve?

I hear the argument many times that says most people won’t try to succeed because they’re scared of failure. I would argue that these people are failing already, and I don’t see them being scared of it. Otherwise, they’ll do something to avoid it. What they’re really scared of is not failure. They are scared of success, and all the “problems” that it brings. Yes, success can bring some huge problems and I would say the biggest one that makes people scared of success is, “What would my friends think?”

Enjoy the episode, and I welcome your feedback.
