Whats holding me back?

Have you ever had a dream of something you really want to achieve – but there is just something that is holding you back?
You don’t know what it is – you cant explain it – its just something stops you from going forward and pursuing your dreams.
I’m a bit like that right now – and I don’t really know why. Or do I?
Is it fear, lack of self-confidence, lack of self-belief? I would probably answer yes to all of those reasons/excuses.
I have so many things that I want to do and achieve, and yet this sense of fear is taking over me at the moment.
For so many years, my only dream was to be a writer, and publish my own novel, but I really never believed that I was any good at writing, but one day I thought, what the heck, so I started writing – and carried on writing, and scary as it was to me, I had the beginnings (yes, very rough beginnings) of my own novel.
So, what do I do? Get a sense of fear, and just stop. I have no idea why I did this.  Does anyone else go through periods when they just doubt everything about themselves?
I used to love sitting down with my notebook and writing – letting my imagination just flow with the pen, and I really want to find that love and enjoyment again, and carry on trying to fulfil my dreams, because dreams are only dreams until you wake up and make them real.
What’s your Dream, and how are you going about achieving your dreams? Let me know in the comments.
