For you to succeed you must defeat yourself.
There is a mental block put into you by society.
You must kill him.
His goal is to keep you "safe".
His goal is keep you where you are.
The only time you may be comfortable is when you are sleeping or getting a massage.
You must constantly exceed your level.
Unless you are moving forward you will be surpassed.
If you get surpassed enough times you will die.
Remember the law of nature:
The Strong will devour the meek's reward.
