It may be difficult to identify an underlying fear, because you may be managing it through avoidance. This can take on many forms, including:
Not trying too hard
Limiting your activities to things you are already good at

This kind of avoidance has a price: You feel the uneasiness that comes with giving up an important part of yourself in exchange for safety. This kind of fear is a monumental obstacle to freedom.
