Resistance is the enemy within. It is the silent killer, the ultimate assassin. It never tires. It never gives up. It is always watching, waiting for the perfect moment to attack. If life were a movie, resistance would lead you down a dead-end dark alley to your doom.
If you think you are alone in your struggle with resistance, think again. We all encounter it each and every day of our lives. Deciding to hit the snooze button on your alarm instead of attacking the day, RESISTANCE. Cutting your workout short because “it has been a long day,” RESISTANCE. Deciding to watch TV instead of starting the blog you have been talking about forever because you don’t know where to start, RESISTANCE.
Here’s the thing, resistance is not self-sufficient. It needs energy, a source of power to sustain itself. That source of power, ironically, just happens to be YOU. Every time you decide to NOT take action in regards to anything that could potentially better your life, you pickup resistances’ check for a 5 course meal from a Michelin restaurant. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the necessary funds available to sustain those expensive tastes.
Luckily, you know the owner and you can have resistance tossed out of the restaurant at any time just by taking the initiative. That first decision, the one that feels like you are about to jump out of a plane without a parachute, will be like climbing Mt. Everest every step of the way. The good news is that every decision to take action from that point on, gets easier and easier. It becomes addictive. The successes and positive changes from your actions are your drug. Before you know it, a few seconds of self-reflection is all you need to overcome resistance when it emerges from the shadows to remind you it still exists.
Choose to conquer resistance today!
