The 10 Biggest Fears Successful People Never Tell Anyone About
Successful People – A lot of people complain about how bad their country’s economy is, how demeaning their jobs are, how costly accommodation is, how low their salaries are, how high health care costs have risen, how expensive education currently is, how uncertain the future looks, and much more.
But what most of the middle-class and lower middle-class individuals who think this way do not realise is that the rich have fears that trouble them also.
1). They Fear Poverty:
On most mornings, the average millionaire takes a drive to his or her work place. During these drive byes, they see the way people live their lives; rushing for the buses, walking long distances, looking beaten up by the economic situation, few begging on the streets, and even senior citizens still struggling to make a living.
The thought that inefficiency or a lackadaisical attitude to their businesses or investments could someday throw them to that state, keeps them on their toes.
While they may go on vacations, purchase expensive cars, send their children to the best schools, and do many other things the average man or woman can only dream of, when others aren’t watching, they make moves to ensure they never get back to the life of not been able to afford anything they want.
The news of another millionaire falling back to the rat-race gets them even more up-right and motivated to maintain their status.
More than anything in the world, successful people hate poverty, and would do anything to ensure they never go to, or back to that life.
2). They Fear Failure:
New challenges can be exciting to some successful entrepreneurs. But to others, the thought of having millions lost in a new investment could be devastating.
While it’s important for millionaires to diversify their portfolio, many do so, extremely slowly, primarily because of the fear of failure.
What if this new business doesn’t work? What if I lose all my investments in this business? What if this loss affects my other investments? What if my failure at this business makes me ruined for life?
The existence of the failure element causes most successful people to stay with their current investments without trying new things. This fear of failure not only keeps their personal net worth around the region it hangs, but also increases their chances of not maintaining their millionaire status in the future.
But as many would say, “a bird in hand, is worth two in the bushes”. And so, most successful people stick only to what primarily guarantees their six figure income keeps rolling in for the time being.

3). They Fear Being Made To Look Like A Fool:
Successful people don’t like to be made a fool of in public. This consciousness makes them usually keep straight-stoned faces when they’re in public gatherings. As a result, majority of the people who meet them mostly assume they’re proud and not friendly.
When they’re in their circle of co-millionaires and billionaires, they loosen up and be themselves. But the chances that they may get criticised or make slight mistakes if they choose to be themselves in public, makes them to appear non-friendly and distant.
4). They Fear Their Spouse May Not Truly Love Them:
While everyone dreams of becoming a millionaire or a billionaire, they also plan to someday spend that wealth with someone who’d always be their side till their last breath.
The problem with millionaires and billionaires in this light, is they mostly don’t know if their spouse truly loves them or not, and this can get really depressing.
For successful people who meet their spouse before getting wealthy, they usually don’t have a reason to question their spouse’s real loyalty, but for those who meet and get married to their spouse after they’ve become successful, the question lingers in their minds.
While it can be terrible for a man or woman to get locked in with a partner who only cares about them by how much he or she can spend on them, not been certain of their loyalty can destroy their emotional state, and eventually their marriage.
