Is it because I grew up in an alcoholic family, or I am a coward, or what? Whenever I am successful or nearly successful, I sabatage myself.

For instance, I got a BS in 1986, yet I have never earned a penny from it.

How do I allow myself to become successful?

Do you self sabatoge yourself?

What is your degree in and what have you been working in?

Not trying to minimize what you're saying here, but I know a LOT of people (myself included) who got degrees in college yet never really "used" them. But, could it be that you used your degree in another way? What about proving to yourself and potential employers that you were able to finish what you start? Honestly, that to me is what getting a degree tells me as a potential hiring manager (except in cases of very specialized fields where actual skills are taught, as opposed to more generalized or theoretical knowledge the way many bachelors courses are structured).
