Okay we all possess this, yet some more than others are pricked by its presence. And why does it make a home within our breast? A nest within our breast?
Is it all as simple as saying; Because we lack “Self Esteem”, well then come to this table and pick out some self esteem. Come to this curative seminar and we will teach you, brainwash you into obtaining some self esteem…….
Of course it will be dissipated in due time, gathered up by the winds of circumstance, but not to worry looka heah what we got for you in that event, yes, oh yes; A mantra to recite, did you hear me correctly; A Mantra!
No it isn’t that simple. 36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
There are things we cannot change. But I propose to you that Faith is a powerful alignment tool. To be aligned with God is a great treaty for the mind. For it is by nature, the Adamic nature that we are aligned with Death, with depression, darkness and many more dark descriptions but I wish to point out for this talk, is a prominent player in the human arena of sorrows and woes; Duality.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Yes because our Father from whom we descend is Adam there is a law which has power over us. Yes of course, we wish to escape that, and yes we are all through Faith afforded The Life of God. This last is accessible through the takeover, the Filling of His Spirit (capital “S”). So it is that a positive and a negative makeup is our lot in this plane. But this is no working of the mind, but of faith, the power of faith whereby we are enabled to cross the threshold of our lot and be enabled by God Almighty.
So what then is the purpose of this post? Well did I not promise we would talk about the Fear of Failure/Fear of Success? And so we will……
Why then couple the aforesaid (Adamic Nature and Duality) and the FOF/FOS (decipher anagram; hint…title of post.).
You will see why as I make my presentation.
First off Psychology has determined that they are both one and the same. The FOF and the FOS. But that is as far as they go (Psychology, the last I perused their journals); IE identifying them as one (the FOF and the FOS).
But I have a clearer understanding for you abetted by the Bible (I know, who woulda thunk it….)
First let us examine why they can be concluded as one by logic alone.
Either one is triggered by a relative circumstance. So what is meant by this? IE Any external, experiential event which triggers one or the other will have the same commonality. Again what does this mean? Success’s proximity can trigger the Fear of Failure. You know this (perhaps now that I speak in a clearer conceptualization)! More; If you fear one, you fear the other. It is a hellish vicious cycle.
So then what have we?
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. This is a place many of us have found our self in; Win/Lose. I know that if I tell you; “This is all due to the Fall of Man.”, yes the Biblical Fall of Man. Your indoctrination cannot, refuses to process this!!!!!!!
Yes, the Bible cannot be true in what it says, purports, espouses. So we believe. So we think, conclude.
The truth, the key is; Humankind’s ability to process, assess and assimilate events, the externals is all incumbent on the innate, the human’s makeup, configuration.
In Genesis 2:7 we find that man was created a Tripartite creation. Spirit/Soul/Body.
Being a fallen creature he is a Duality, a Dichotomy (a two part being); A Soul/Body being. And so he is beset by Dualities projected by his Dualistic configuration, composition.
And so it is that A Fear of Failure is triggered by a Fear Of Success.
A clarification (please); Some, outwardly will appear to not be affected by this duality because they “Are Successful”. Tagged as such. But the Duality can be discerned because it is the FOF which drives them to achieve success, and more importantly eventually this is made obvious by a tendency to self derail.
Oh yes. The Successful and Celebrity is prone to Self Derailment due to the innate dictator. A innate makeup which will not be silenced for it is our “Indictment, our Condemnation”, our truth within.
Pleas return for part two and I will attempt to wrap this up for you.
