Yeske Buie in the Media: 10 Fears That Are Keeping You From Being Rich
A recent article by Lou Carlozo, The 10 Fears That Are Keeping You From Being Rich, outlines behaviors that oftentimes come between you and your potential wealth. It seems ironic that while many feel additional wealth would be the answer to their financial fears, it may be fear that is holding them back from the additional wealth. Some of these fears include fear of failing, fear of racking up debt, fear of trusting a financial professional, and fear of giving up your guilty pleasure. Dave contributed his thoughts for Lou’s article to help identify two of the ten fears and how you can mitigate these fears and change them into positive thoughts:
Fear of Becoming a Target: Money can inspire envy and jealousy from competitors, family members and friends — and who needs that? “As the old proverb goes: ‘The nail that sticks up gets pounded down,’” said Dave Yeske, managing director at the wealth management firm Yeske Buie and director of the financial planning program at Golden Gate University. “Then again, the other proverb says: ‘Nothing ventured, nothing gained.’”
Fear of Getting Rejected: If you still pout about getting shot down for a junior prom date, you might loathe the thought of a venture capitalist or potential business partner dismissing your vision. “I’ve known a number of people with a great project proposal who never got anywhere because they were never quite confident enough to just take what they had and present it,” Yeske said. So if you fear you have everything to lose, reframe it: You probably have nothing to lose.
For those who find that even one of these fears resonates with them, we offer the following quote from Marianne Williamson that we infuse into our culture at Yeske Buie as a reminder to lose those fears and replace them with powerful thoughts:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
