You need to build up the courage to fight this feeling and avail all the better opportunities that can take you faster towards your goals.
Depending on others:
It is human nature to avoid discomfort and difficulty. This is the reason many people stay dependent on others for living their lives comfortably. But this comfort is not something they can rely on. You can get stuck living in a society that discourages strength and independence. You need to stop depending on others for even the smallest things in life and become self-reliant. You will a much better life when you will proceed depending on your own decision and effort.
Feeling you’ve earned something without putting effort:
When you feel that the things you have got are entitled to you, you stop being grateful. You think you have earned things without putting any effort to and so you should not be thankful for anything. This feeling takes you away from gratitude and you never feel living a satisfied life.
This is the biggest enemy you can ever have within you. It makes your life miserable and never gets caught because it lives in your mind. It is something that is always unnatural and unnecessary and makes the situation even worse for you. You need to fight this enemy as soon as you become aware of it and relax your body through positive thoughts and meditation.
Losing ownership of things:
Unknowingly you sometimes attach your feelings and emotions to ownership. You think that you own something but when you lose it, you don’t accept it. You think of it as part of yourself and when it gets out of your control, you feel like you have lost a piece of yourself. You need to get rid of this controlling feeling because it can get you stuck in your tracks and deprive you of your goals that you plan to achieve.
