Battling the Resistance

Yesterday I read these words from web guru, John Saddington.

“The resistance isn’t a man or a woman, it’s not your boss or a deadline, it’s not some evil bad guy trying to keep you from your goals. The resistance is internal, something inside your gut that tells you to quit. It’s a deeply personal battle, but it’s one that you must win.”

If you are like me, there are times when you give in to the resistance.

Time for your workout . . . you opt for the couch instead. The book you dreamed of writing . . . still ink in the pen. The moments you intended to spend with your kids . . . robbed by television.

Recognize the resistance. It isn’t coming from someone who is out to defeat you. It comes from within, and it is a battle you must win.



Which area of your life is the resistance the strongest?

…it is always easier to point the finger at others and cast blame than to look inward and find the source of the resistance within ourselves, BUT there will never be a cure for the resistance until we accept the fact the source of it lies within us… Many will try to run, but it will always follow you! I know because…

Writing, for sure… there is always an obstacle. I quit before I get started. Need a coach. 🙂

It is too easy to give in to the path of least resistance, & lose. I pray that God will strengthen me to push past the resistance and persevere…
