I've been shuffling around my apartment, dragging my feet to get up a good electrical charge then shocking myself in the hopes that I'd be inspired to get past the salutation and write this email!. Did I leave out the part about me whining about blah blah blah? Yah, that's just me getting stuck like we all get stuck and fighting the good fight to honor my commitment.
Anybody else feeling some RESISTANCE lately?
Could be you're learning something new - feeling something new - wanting to be someone new- Maybe you have to do something to get to your next big thing, but you really just wanting to get to the result without having to go through all the steps- I feel you. Holy Cow, I really do. Try this to get moving:
▪ OWN WHERE YOU ARE. Draw it close, don't push it away. ▪ NO JUDGING. Trust that it's happening for you not to you ▪ PUT A LITTLE AIR AROUND YOU so you can respond and not react ▪ START FROM WHERE YOU ARE AND MOVE FORWARD. Bring what's stopping you into the light..........
“We’re wrong to think we’re the only ones struggling with Resistance. Everyone who has a body experiences Resistance. Henry Fonda was still throwing up before each stage performance, even when he was seventy-five. In other words, fear doesn’t go away. The warrior and the artist live by the same code of necessity, which dictates that the battle must be fought anew every day.” __ — Steven Pressfield from Do the Work
