Success: Opposing Forces Within

Resistance: The Enemy Within

Resistance is defined as “A force that tends to oppose or retard motion.”

It is fair to say that most of the tiredness or feeling of exhaustion that we sense when we think about change is in fact ‘resistance’. We so often think it is “easier said than done” but in actual fact..

“It IS easier done than said”.


Take the situation where you are procrastinating about making a dental appointment. How many seconds does it take to pick up the phone and dial the number…

opposed to…

considering all the ways to get out of it because of:

– the money it costs,
– the time you think you don’t have,
– whether you really need to,
– whether you need to think about it, etc. etc. etc.

In the meantime, the appointment would have been booked and you would have committed to it right?

Resistance is a powerful force in our lives. It is the enemy working in conflict with everything we believe we are hoping for.  As we are not consciously aware of just how much it dominates our thinking and our actions, it takes us for everything we have.

We think we are tired or we think this ‘bad feeling’ is because it won’t work, can’t work, shouldn’t work, is not due to work… and it causes the perfect shield and distracts us elsewhere. It shields us from victory over the changes that we beat ourselves up about because we feel they should be so easy and sound so simple to complete.

The reality is that because we can’t see the enemy of resistance, we don’t prioritise its dissolution but there are fun and exciting ways to dissolve a great deal of the retardation in your energy fields and clear your resistance!
