is it you? the economy? you cant catch a break? its just the cards life has dealt me? to be honest, i think we are our own worst enemies and fear of failing is one of everyone's greatest fears, second only to maybe fear of 'what will everyone else think??'

I've raised kids and grandkids, helped my husband build 2 successful businesses, and had a moderately successful run as a custom bridal seamstress... I want to open a papercrafts shop online, and it feels silly to say that I can't get started because of a pup that refuses to be housebroken!! My shop is set up... and empty. I can't work at inventory in less than pristine surroundings... yet she defies me at every turn with small puddles!! I have no fear of failure, because I know my product is good, but if I DO fail, at least I tried! Rather, I WILL try, as soon as....

I know it's me and only me. And success starts from within yourself. I believe, as you said, I am my own worst enemy. But I'm working on it. I'm believing in myself, and I believe I will be successful.

Fear? I think people can not achieve their purposes, there may be such a sentiment, I do not want to let fear hurt my chances to succeed.

I swear blind I've answered this already, although my notify is here and I don't reply to friends within the site (as I have them on notify) So, I'm sorry if I have. Normally it's myself! ~Joey

For me right now it's money. In the past it used to be myself. I couldn't believe in myself and I almost felt like I didn't deserve to have my dreams come true which is really odd because everyone says if anyone is deserving it's me..I have self esteem issues. Anyways. Yeah right now it's money. with rent and utilities and credit cards money is just going everywhere but in savings. Tiffany

Fear. Fear is what holds me back from success, but no more. I don't want to let fear hurt my chances to succeed. I want to accomplish many things and right now I have a goal. I go back to school in the fall and I don't want fear to ruin it for me.
