What is the greatest impediment that a business person can face? Is it the fear of Failure or the fear of Success?

Love to hear what people think about this one.

My suspicion is that both of these are just facets of a bigger issue. The underlying belief that one isn’t “good enough” and “doesn’t deserve” to be as successful. Or as deserving/ clever/ privileged as those we have seen do it (whatever “it” is) already. Since they have done it, there is the proof they are better then me (because I have not done it) and this can feed back to the belief as evidence. “Some people can do it but not me”.

The fear perhaps is finding out that this sneaking thought that lurks but which we may not face directly… might be true.
