What You Resist Persists: Let Go Of Resistance
Resistance is simply your mind's fearful response to your heart and soul's inspiration.
You have probably heard this, but not sure what it means. I have been reading Nick Williams book ‘Resisting your Soul: 101 Powerful Tips to free your inspiration’. A powerful quote from the book: “Resistance is simply your mind’s fearful response to your heart and soul’s inspiration.”
To overcome resistance in your life, whether it be in your health, business, job, or relationship, you have to expand your level of awareness. The things that you resist could very well be your purpose – the idea that will most fulfill you as you start doing it.
You know that feeling deep inside yourself, the one that is a deep-seated desire that you keep pushing away but wants to express as part of you. This is what has become trapped in your self-created prison of fear and that underlying sense that you are not quite good enough. So, soften your resistance, let go of your perceived limitations and beliefs that are making it hard for you and stopping all the good you desire to come your way. Ask yourself: who could I be without my problems?
Your problems can serve a great purpose, but they also can become an excellent excuse for you not to show up.
“Excuses are nothing more than lies that fear has sold you “(Carmen Bell, South African Entrepreneur)
Dip into the bucket of courage and act in spite of the resistance and fear that is controlling you.
- It’s letting go of habits that aren’t serving you and upgrading your thoughts to create new patterns
- It’s booking in your business launch even if you aren’t ready
- It’s acting on the email or phone call to sort out your finances
- It’s going to the gym or for a run or walk that you committed to
- It’s looking after your body with the right foods, rest, and exercise
- It’s making those videos, recordings, and presentations that you don’t want to do
- It’s sending out the invoices with your price increase
- It’s picking up the phone and making the calls
Stop the procrastination and take action even if you don’t want to. Make this the year that you commit to yourself. Write a list of your fears, the things you are avoiding, the thoughts you are having – then write another list of how you can face them and replace them with thoughts actions and beliefs that will serve you.
So let go of your resistance and commit to doing the simple things every day that will create a better outcome for you and move you closer to where you want to be.
