When we hold back from ourselves and others, we create stagnation of our growth and block any good from reaching us.
We hold back due to fear or because we are listening to our saboteur - that voice in our heads - that tells us that where we are is fine. That voice or fear tries to break you down and tear away your passions, desires and dreams. When we listen we surrender to it and lose out on love, life, abundance, success and much, much more.
What is your saboteur repeating to you to make you hold back? Be aware that if you are hearing this voice, then you are not telling yourself. It is another voice which speaks fear into your inner ear. You can turn off that voice by acknowledging this and taking steps to change your thoughts and beliefs to push you forward toward your happiness.
