What keeps you from saying “YES!” to your Still Small Voice? ~Unknown

 

What IS keeping you from saying “YES!” to your dreams? Why aren’t you taking them seriously?  Why aren’t you moving toward them in little increments each day?

Of course many of the answers will be logical and reasonable and make sense, such as I have to pay the bills and I have a family to support and My degree/training is in XYZ field….

Then there are the faithful old standbys of I’m too old/young/short/tall/thin/fat/smart/dumb….

But these are just scare tactics we use on ourselves to keep ourselves in line, i.e. not going for our dreams but rather sticking with the status quo and not making any waves and not rocking the boat.

But why?

What’s so important about the status quo? What’s the dire thing we’re so afraid of if we do make waves?  What will happen if we don’t rock the boat; what will happen if we do rock the boat?
