I think the fear of being successful actually holds a lot of people back. I know it held me back for quite some time. Fear of failure is another one. So is doubt. Many people lack confidence and also deem themselves unworthy of success. It’s a sad reality. Working on your self worth and self esteem is really important if you want to make it in life. Just my two cents. Nice blog post.
