5 Things That Are Holding You Back in Life

5 things that hold you back in life

1. Fear
Fear is the number one thing that will hold you back in life. And fear comes in primarily two forms:

  • fear of failure; and
  • fear of success
  • People who have a lot of fear never end up achieving their goals in life
    2. Attachment
    Take a look at yourself and see if you are attached to anything and then see whether that attachment is holding you back
    The great Buddhist master Gampopa said that if you want to be happy you need to leave your homeland as soon as you are able. Otherwise your life will be characterized by attachment.
    3. Arrogance
    Dogma is a very dangerous thing. It is where you become so blinded to a way of thinking that you are closed off to all other possibilities.
