This isn't about being overly confident, it's about letting your ego keep you small and safe.

Our ego is designed to keep us in our comfort zone where it is safe and...well....comfortable. When we start to stretch and grow it becomes uncomfortable. So our ego will attempt to step in and attempt to keep us from growing.

Just the other day I found my ego trying to keep me small. I'm working to grow and step up, so my ego tried to pull me back down. Rather than growing I was tempted to sit on the couch and veg.

While those days are good every now and then, there is a difference between resting and not growing. Rest is necessary, but it can be misleading sometimes. It can look as though we need rest, but what we really need is to get up and move. Give ourselves the momentum and energy to keep going.
