Are You Subconsciously Sabotaging Your Success Because You Feel Guilty About Becoming Successful? | 5 Steps Before You Start a Landscaping Business

I have two chapters lined up for you guys in this episode. Steps to becoming successful are not easy, even you're already there and have achieved your goal. Still lots of improvements you need to make, many things you need to learn. Don't stop. Do what you have to do.


"I took so much pride in creating value and being a giver to people the best that I knew how and I create, I found great value in that. But I was doing it through the years to the point where it was becoming detrimental to my own success. Where I wasn't leveling up myself. And I actually uncovered through time in some tough trials and tribulations that  I was actually afraid of success. So I was sabotaging my own success in doing everything to help everybody else because I was too afraid and too guilty." -  Keith Kalfas

Are You Subconsciously Sabotaging Your Success Because You Feel Guilty About Becoming Successful


  • It came to the point that I am becoming detrimental to my own success. Where I wasn't leveling up myself. And I actually uncovered through time in some severe trials and tribulations.


  • You need to give everything away to everybody else all the time, to the detriment of your own self. And so I started to stop and take a moment and say, Wait a second. What if this amazing thing I just learned was meant only for Keith right now? And I stopped, and I said to breathe and practice receiving, which doubled my income. Doubled my income. My revenue. You see, you need to learn for yourself too.... You need to apply it to your own self.


  • And I worked on my receiving muscles of learning how to be not only a cheerful giver but a delighted receiver without feeling guilty, and I still struggle with it, right?

But you also have to be a receiver. This is a give and take relationship to make things work.


  • I noticed once I start to become a little bit successful, there are many people in my life. And it's been an emotional process of growing up and maturing, to learn what's real, what's fact from what's fiction, because other people's victim stories, and unwillingness to grow and evolve in their own life really be exposed, and there'll be a spotlight put on them. When you start to grow, and you start to shine.
