Before going through internal shifts, we are very firm on the belief systems we have. We condition ourselves to think that only what we know and what we see is true and of utmost importance. We are very set and rigid in our ways without feeling the necessity to bring about any changes in ourselves. This arrogance is usually our ego talking. Ego feeds on behaviours of conformation, fear, safe playing it al. It is actually not fear, but our ego that keeps us from taking risks, making life changes to reach our absolute potential. We need to hear out the ego, but reassure it that we will do just fine, and push through to live our dreams.
