What Holds Us Back

Doing the same thing that we've been doing to get here doesn't take us further forward.

But it does keep us here.

And doing something different brings with it the uncertainty of "what if it doesn't work?"

There are no guarantees in life.

If we are happy with the way things are, then we can be risk averse and continue to do the same thing.

However, if we are hoping that somehow magically there will come a time in the near future when we will end up going further forward without changing what we are doing, then we'll continue to hope.

To move forward, we must be ready to tumble and fall and drop from where we are.

That's the inherent risk of our actions not working out as we want.

It is not the knowledge that we must do something different to move forward that holds us back. It is the fear of losing what we already have, the fear of upsetting the status quo.
