More specifically, what’s holding me back?
- Have you seen this video from Backcountry.com‘s Facebook page. It inspired the hell out of me.
- Which caused me to watch “Art of Flight”.
- Then a friend messaged me, saying I should try out for American Ninja Warrior. I’ve had no less than 13 people tell me this.
- And now, because I’m typing this, I’m reflecting on a text message I received from Pamela after climbing in Vedauwoo.
So again, I ask, “What’s Holding Me Back?”
As far as I can see, it’s me. I’m holding me back.
Am I afraid of failure? Afraid of success? Not recognizing current success? Downplaying accomplishments? What is it?
Why do others recognize my capabilities, but I don’t? Why am I afraid to make the leap required to do the things necessary to live up to my supposed potential?
Or maybe I’m just self-absorbed. Maybe I’m a “victim” of my Gen. Y stereotype.
I don’t know what it is, but I don’t have any answers. I only know what actions I can take to get me where I want to be. If only I wasn’t afraid to take those first steps.
