Neil I think I know what you mean. For me at least I think it stems from something similar to what moma said. After you get success what then? Once you've completed your goals you have nothing more to accomplish. Maybe its a fear of not having anything to do which somehow relates to the fear of extinction ie. once you're done all there is left to do is die. Fear of ego-death could explain it if you don't want to be successful because you fear you may fail at one point or another

What is this bs? Like most people I also procrastinate, it's hard to get stuff done and conversely it is much easier when somebody is telling you to do it i.e in a job.

To turn this around and say you're not doing it is because you're afraid of achieving everything you want then having some sort of existential crisis about having nothing more to achieve is just kidding yourself.

If I told you that you could push a button and you'd instantly become a billionaire are you telling me you may not do it due to your fear of success?
