My realization is that most people want to succeed, but they really don’t want to succeed. Staying where you are, is far easier than going where you need too, because staying where you are means you don’t have to fail, and you can continue to use your excuses that you always have.
Success means getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. Success means challenging the story that holds you back, as just that a story. Success means moving from where you are, regardless of how much it scares you, to get to where you know you have always wanted to be.
