You Are Not Alone.
The more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.
Resistance will tell you anything to keep you from doing your work. It has no conscience and it impersonal. It is always lying and full of shit.
Resistance is elicited when we launch an entrepreneurial venture; when we pursue education; or any act that entails commitment of the heart, the undertaking of any enterprise or endeavor whose aim is to help others, any act of political, moral, or ethical courage. In short, any act that rejects immediate gratification in favor of long-term growth, health, or integrity.
Resistance can look like brain clutter. Thought versus chatter. It can look like research. You can never be ready enough. It can look like procrastination. It can look like self-judgment. It looks like running errands instead of doing the work. It can look like inertia. It can look like fear. Fear and intelligence keep us safe.
We can never eliminate it. It will never go away. But we can outsmart it, and we can enlist allies that are as powerful as it is.
Our weapons against Resistance are passion, stubbornness, stupidity in the form of crazy and unconventional, blind faith, friends and family, mentors and coaches.
Thought has an innate intelligence and infinite creative potential. Resistance blocks the innate intelligence. When we chip away at the Resistance we can access more innate intelligence.
I coach people to handle their Resistance. I don’t offer five easy steps. There aren’t five easy steps. Our resistance is often informed by our histories and our stories. We all have different stories. I help people make their stories and thus their Resistance more conscious. Then we fight like hell.
Join me and a group of your peers as we outsmart the Resistance week by week. Call me about getting into a group coaching program.
You are not alone.
