You are your own villain

You may think that what is holding you back is outside your control.

The colour of your skin, the social standing of your parents, the nature of your colleagues.

They may be the symptoms but they are certainly not the cause. They may be where your attention is drawn, but they are not the culprits.

What’s holding you back is buried deep within you. It may be bottled with a dash of anger. It may be hiding behind a broken heart. It may be a flimsy belief that served you as a child but now hinders you as an adult.

It’s easy to look away, to blame others. But the truth is you are to blame for holding yourself back.

You are your own villain.
