Are you facing lots of resistance right now?
The trick is not to recognise resistance as blocking you but see it as helping you in some way.
How can you go around it? Or rise above it?
First see resistance for what it is.
The natural knee-jerk byproduct of action. Not a force outside of you.
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
More about this?
Think like an airplane.
The faster you go the more resistance you face. Then suddenly whoosh!
You’re airborne. On a totally different plane.
Without facing resistance you can’t get to a higher plane.
Trust that it’s helping you fly rather than holding you back.
Resistance is the soft underbelly of action. You can’t have one without the other.
First it feels like its stopping you. Then its the air under your wings.
As soon as you see resistance as a force outside of you, you’re in danger of stalling.
Whatever you resist (in thought, word or action) you give your life force to.
But what if your airplane is a lousy design?
You cannot afford to have that thought in take off.
You’ll never know unless you try 100%
If you hesitate half way down the runway you won’t make it.
You’ll crash at the end of the tarmac.
Or you’ll find yourself sitting in a rocker one day wondering “What if…”
So what to do?
First take the plane (or plan) you have right now. Point it into (not with!!) the wind and commit fully.
But what if it crashes?
Learn from it.
Be glad you can finally move on.
Look for a plane you admire that’s already flying
And copy it exactly.
(In other words, find a mentor and positive role model.)
The danger most people make is to look at 20 different models and try to put
all the bests bits of all 20 into one plane. Chances are you’ll have a fabulously strange contraption in the end.
Remember that old classic – Those incredible men and their flying machines?
Some rather crazy inventions got dreamt up.
This is what happens when people dont yet know what works and what doesn’t.
I’ll be putting a new plane in the sky starting September 23rd.
Circle this day in your diary (I originally said 28th but this has changed.)
Will you be on the ground watching or will you be up in the sky flying with me?
Fasten your seatbelts and remember
if you’re facing any resitance right now
it’s there to support you.
You create resistance whenever you take action
and if it’s not the wind under your wings it means only one thing:
You’re facing the wrong way!
You’ve got your tail into the wind not your nose.
(Waiting for God-knows-who to help??)
Turn around and face the resistance full on.
Love it for the opportunity it brings.
