Habits & Goals, Life Purpose

Many of us struggle in our personal and professional lives with resistance and obstacles – those places where we feel stuck or held back.

As an entrepreneur, I’ve faced my fair share of challenges and setbacks. From launching new courses to managing a team, there have been times when it felt like everything was working against me. However, over the years, I’ve learned that resistance and obstacles can actually be opportunities for growth and success.

So, if you’re feeling stuck or frustrated in your own journey – don’t worry…

Today, I’m going to share my top tips for working with resistance and obstacles in a way that will help you overcome them and achieve your goals.

Recognize that resistance is natural

The first step in working with resistance is to recognize that it’s a natural part of the process. Whether you’re starting a new business or embarking on a new project, there will always be challenges and obstacles that you’ll need to overcome.

When you’re faced with resistance, it’s important to remember that it’s not a sign that you’re doing something wrong. Instead, it’s a sign that you’re pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone and into new territory.

So, instead of getting discouraged when you encounter resistance, try to reframe it as a sign that you’re making progress.

Get curious about your resistance

Once you’ve recognized that resistance is natural, the next step is to get curious about it. Ask yourself why you’re experiencing resistance and what it’s trying to tell you.

If you’re struggling to launch a new product or idea, ask yourself if you’re worried about failure or if there’s something you’re missing in your marketing strategy. By getting curious about your resistance, you can start to uncover the underlying causes and develop a plan to overcome them.

Embrace the discomfort

Working with resistance is uncomfortable. It’s not easy to push through fear and uncertainty, but it’s essential if you want to achieve your goals.

One of the best ways to embrace this discomfort is to focus on the end goal. Visualize what it will feel like when you’ve achieved your goal, and use that as motivation to push through the resistance.

It can also be helpful to remind yourself of past successes. Think back to a time when you overcame a similar obstacle and remind yourself that you have the strength and resilience to do it again.

Develop a plan

Once you’ve identified the source of your resistance and embraced the discomfort, it’s time to develop a plan to overcome it.

Start by breaking your goal down into smaller, more manageable steps. This will make it easier to focus on the process rather than the end result and will help you build momentum as you work towards your goal.

Next, identify any resources or support you might need to overcome the obstacle. This might include reaching out to a mentor or coach, investing in a new tool or resource, or simply asking for help from friends and family.

Finally, set realistic timelines and milestones for each step in your plan. This will help you stay focused and motivated as you work towards your goal.

Celebrate small victories

Working with resistance can be a long and challenging process. That’s why it’s important to celebrate small victories along the way.

Every time you overcome an obstacle or make progress toward your goal, take a moment to celebrate your success. This will help you stay motivated and focused, and will make the process of working with resistance feel more rewarding.

Remember: resistance means your are growing

Working with resistance and obstacles is never easy, but it’s an essential part of achieving your goals. By recognizing that resistance is natural, getting curious about your resistance, embracing the discomfort, developing a plan, and celebrating small victories, you can overcome any obstacles along the path to your biggest goals and dreams.
