I realized as I was finishing up the Results Not Resolutions series, that I didn’t mention the best part to all of this. When you start shifting your focus to get to your next level of greatness, you can start to experience things that make you feel like all hell is breaking loose. It doesn’t matter how pumped you are about setting goals and getting results, you still have to be prepared for the fact that life is still going to happen.
Resistance will still surface in spite of your best efforts. We will all find ourselves coming to a fork in the road about whether we keep going or whether we give up. Butting up against resistance is why many of us fall away from our goals year after year. Today, I’m going to talk about resistance and how to work through it.
Resistance is a force that acts to stop the progress of something or make it slower.
All materials naturally contain resistance to the flow of electric current. We are all experiencing some level of resistance at any given moment.
Expect resistance, because no one is immune to it. Even people who look like they are doing great could be going through difficult times.
When we make plans and goals, we expect the vision we have for them.
Set yourself up to have a contingency plan to navigate through the seasons of resistance.
We have the power to reframe this resistance to be for us not against us.
Resistance is here to reveal opportunities for growth.
