Why do we sometimes resist doing what we know is good for us?
The reason I started thinking about Resistance is because it’s come up within the Doodleicious Exploration I’m currently running (which is fabulous btw, such a great group and the discoveries being well discovered – wow!)
So what do you think? How come you start something [or think about starting something] then all of a sudden BAM you get hit by this feeling of resistance. I’m not saying this happens all the time – but when it does. What do you do?
Are you able to notice it and push through it – or do you feel that resistance force full on and fall over?
And where exactly does it come from?
Is it good for you?
Yes in fact sometimes it actually can be.
It’s all about patterns. Patterns that your brain has learnt and when you start to challenge these then they sit up and shout Hang on a minute this is different – what’s happening??
And usually when you start to notice resistance it can mean you are on the verge of a breakthrough...
Has this happened to you? Can you think of a time when you noticed resistance to something - but pushed through - what happened?
And of course on the flip side resisting has its benefits. When has than been the case for you?
The Key here is understanding which resistance it is for you.
So the next time you notice it - be curious and figure out what kind of resistance it is.
Would love to hear your personal resistance stories? Share yours with me here..;-)
