So, there you are with everything you need to move forward. You know how to get started on that goal. You have all the resources, you know what you want, you are clear about the end results of your actions and you know that this is the right step to take. However, for some reason you don’t take action. Why?
Why do we hold back? What is it within us that prevent us from moving forward?
In this article, I share three reasons that I know hold us back from moving forward.
Often times, you start doubting yourself. You believe the psychological mind that presents thoughts such as, you are not enough for whatever you need, you don’t have what it takes to get it or that you are not worthy that milestone. However, what’s interesting is that when you stop and think about these thoughts you realize that there is no evidence to support them. In a nutshell, these thoughts are based on pure illusion, unsupported conclusions—the likeness of insanity.
Fear is a powerful state that can either inspire you to move forward or retard your actions. The latter fear has a tendency of recruiting all sorts of reasons why you shouldn’t move forward. You could envision failure and disappointments, and actually start generating negative emotions to reflect on your delusional visions. But again, if you self-evaluate you realize that there’s no evidence to support the visualized negative future.
Now, the fear of success is one of the many reasons why we should never trust our psychological minds…our thoughts. Of course, you want to succeed. Who doesn’t? But the egoistical mind will tell you otherwise, because its job is weaken and rule (“It’s the supreme politician” ~ Sri Moojiji). Note that the more afraid you are, the less you act; the less you make decisions authentic to you; the more you panic, and the more susceptible you become to negative programming.
There are many reasons that we normally have to support our inactions. However, most of these reasons are rooted on fear. Therefore, if you are holding back self-evaluate to establish if your reasons are not solely rooted on fear. If affirmative, click on that button, make that call, send that email, make that purchase; do not let the egoistical mind hold you captive to its delusional suggestions.
