Lean In to the Resistance

Every person has some form of self-talk they engage in.  A conversation in your mind that will drive you to achieve success and pushing forward or will find reason why you cannot be successful, causing inaction and passiveness.  These reasons that can be created in our mind as to why we should stop and not move forward with a project or an idea are resistance.  Resistance can come in many different shapes and forms.  The resistance or pushback may come from outside of you in the naysayers that drag you down and say it cannot be done.  The pushback may come in events that are “perceived” as a reason why we should not push forward.  The pushback may come from within your mind, reasons developed without basis as to why you should stop.

The Heart of the Competitor welcomes this resistance as a challenge to grow and become more.  This pushback is essential to discovering the limitless resources that are located within the Heart of the Competitor.  The Heart of the Competitor engages in positive self-talk and pushes their mind to the reasons why they will be successful in their endeavors, destroying any push-back they may experience.  Average people in the world will talk not only their own mind out of doing anything and being anything, but they will also attempt to drag others down from doing anything and being anything.  The Heart of the Competitor destroys those people, destroys that pushback and uses it as momentum to accomplish great things.

The negativity that others and even your own self-talk will provide is akin to the stretching of a rubber band.  A rubber band is only useful when it is stretched to its’ maximum length.  The rubber band is performing to its’ full capabilities when it is stretched and at this full-length, it is experiencing maximum resistance.  When it is let go at this maximum resistance, it does its’ greatest work.

Question of the Day:

What is the greatest resistance or push back you have experienced?  How have you found a way to overcome it?
