That's what your ego tells you when you try to be more, do more. It sounds cruel, but it thinks it's trying to protect us from the unknown. Here's what we need to understand: our ego wants to keep us safe from an unknown future that leaves room for failure. The future is determined by free will, physics, and divine timing. We can't direct it or control it. So, the ego is a survival instinct that developed somewhere in human evolution to protect us from danger. But it is not one that serves our highest good.
The fear at the root of ego-based self-bullying answer is usually one of two things: the fear of being alone or the fear of death. The ego interprets the uncertainty of new possibilities, relationships and growth opportunities as threats to our survival. Anything it can't predict and analyze, beginning to end, is registered as "danger." That's the truth of it.
What I've learned since I discovered that truth is this: I can't fix broken thinking with more thinking. And I can't look to my ego-based mind to resolve the problem it created. Changing the status quo requires us to reprogram our thinking, and sometimes the only way to do that is to act.
You've heard people say things like "Jump and the net will appear," that "everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear," and "when you're most afraid to jump, that's when you need most to do it," but these inspirational quotes don't offer much actual support, do they? There are worlds between the impulse to jump and the leap itself. That's where the magic can happen.
I am a divine agent of light and the universe is always working through me, with me and for me.
You are connected to a higher purpose. The world needs you. People are waiting for your unique offerings, message and magic. You are called to create and share your vision in new ways. That doesn't mean the fear is any less crippling.
