The Most Basic Fear that Stops Us From Thriving and Expanding

The Most Basic Fear that Stops Us From Thriving and Expanding

 One of my greatest fears is the fear that if I keep financially expanding and allow myself to succeed beyond my wildest dreams, then I will lose the people in my life because they will reject me.

I call this the fear of losing love.

The need to be loved is one of our most basic needs.

Research has shown that babies who are starved of affectionate touch can actually stop growing and can become ill. It’s not enough for babies to be held, they have to be nuzzled and kissed, they have to be held in a way that makes them feel loved.

So as adults, it makes sense that we’d also want to hold onto the love we have in our lives and not lose it.

Since paying off my debts, my focus has been on building an investment portfolio, but between traveling and building Wealthy, I don’t have much time to research shares so I’ve been a passive investing strategy.

This is a long term investment strategy, where instead of investing in individual shares, you invest in market indexes like the Dow Jones, Nasdaq, JSE Top 40 or Satrix 40 (exchange traded funds) etc.

When I graduated from UCT I decided to dabble in investments and invested in the Ghana Stock Exchange. 

I’ve since sold almost all those shares except for one in a mining company (or maybe it's cocoa, I'm not sure).

I’ve had those shares for 13 years. I sold the other shares to pay for my living expenses when I was doing my MBA.
