But I don’t want to…Resistance
I woke up this morning and the last thing I wanted to do was do the things I needed to do. Does that sound familiar?
But, I’m disciplined so I made my to-do list and got to work. After two hours of writing, deleting and writing some more, I distracted myself with some facebook, a phone call about a vacation rental, lunch and then…And then I made myself sit back down to complete my writing task.
Let’s just face it, some days are better than others for writing, going to meetings, showing up for events or about anything needed to stay engaged and move the needle on your business. That’s where seeing your resistance is different than giving in to it. Giving in can look like canceling a meeting, putting off buying plane tickets until they get so expensive the trip isn’t worth it, skipping an event. The list is limitless. I know.
Being an entrepreneur is an endurance sport that you’re always in training for. Even though I know that showing up is 99% of the game and that things happen when you least expect them I still dance with my own resistance…even after almost thirty years in business.
How do you work with your own resistance?
