As you work towards finishing the year strong…
Be mindful that the most challenging part of ACHIEVING a goal…
Is overcoming resistance.
Resistance prevents writers from writing, painters from painting, runners from running, and coaches from coaching.
I know of no enemy, competition or opposition force more insidious or vicious than resistance.
That’s why it’s in the private interest of each individual and corporation to protect against resistance…
For the simple reason that the costs and consequences of resistance are difficult for any of us to ignore.
Resistance will always…
…work to undermine you and crush your belief in yourself.
…call for and demands your resignation letter.
…ruthlessly attempt to extract a pound of flesh.
…goad and prod you into quitting.
But success always hangs in the balance.
The fact is resistance is unworthy of your companionship…
It’s an unwanted visitor that must be dealt with.
Resistance is unique in that it immediately engages the fight-or-flight mechanism…
And you never know how you are going to react until you are confronted with it.
Resistance is never a reason for quitting, hesitating or second guessing yourself.
It’s only an excuse for those unwilling to face their doubts, insecurities, and mental boogie man.
Which means…if you’re ever going to find your greatness, and finish the year strong…
You must decide that what you want is BIGGER and far more important than the resistance which prevents you from achieving it.
Remember, resistance is a choice…so is action, persistence and focus.
Therefore, you must choose to put resistance behind you—to stare it in the eye…
To walk straight through it and advance toward your goals with confidence, conviction, and certainty.
I know you can…the real question is will you.
