“As resistance works to keep us from becoming who we were born to be, equal and opposite powers are counterpoised against it. These are our allies and angels.”
~ Steven Pressfield
Have you met with resistance? It can show up in your business, your relationships, your diet, and exercise regime. It’s the excuses and environmental factors we use to explain why we couldn’t work to our fullest potential, and why we couldn’t engage in our yoga or running practice, and why we couldn’t be more present with our loved ones.
Resistance can show up in many forms. It could be a feeling in your mind that you would rather lounge around than do your work, or it could be actual chaos that shows up in your life. Actually, resistance has a powerful force, because just as you decide to get on with your creative work, deep passions, and commitments, resistance will show up to challenge you—Are you sure you are ready to move forward in your journey? And if you manage to go beyond that initial resistance, the magical happens. When you decide to go beyond the discomfort, and let go of the excuses, all of a sudden, the unseen forces (some call them angels), gather around you to help you along your journey. You find yourself excited to go to your next yoga class or workout session, you feel inspired to drink a green smoothie over a slushy sugary drink, and you decide to commit to a challenging project that feeds your soul. The moment you decide that you will beat resistance is the moment that the universe will unite with you to help you live in your power.
But you have to take the first step, go beyond your excuses, go beyond your zone of comfort, and move into your power.
Take The Challenge
1. Write down the main project you want to start or work on that you find yourself putting off
2. Decide you will work on it no matter what
3. Block off 2 hours on your calendar each week for the next month to dedicate to your project. Schedule it in your calendar NOW.
4. Stay committed no matter what happens in your life. If you really want to beat resistance you WILL commit to yourself no matter what external circumstance shows up in your life. Do this to empower your own life.
