One Thing Standing Between You and Success
Only one thing stands between you and success
And, by success, I mean success in any area of your life.
That one thing is -
The Formula for Success is simple - just double your rate of failure. Thomas Watson.
Pay CLOSE attention to what you resist. It’s the path to growth and success.
Discipline equals freedom.
It’s part of the human experience to run into challenges, obstacles and procrastination.
Think of water. It knows no obstacles. It flows over or around any obstacle. You, too, have this capability.
Everything that comes up for you that you tend to see as a challenge first is nothing more than an opportunity for growth, for the change you truly desire.
So, let’s think about the things in your life you may feel you are struggling with, right now.
Fitness, health, weight loss?
All we are really after is the feeling we want to experience about something. The feeling that a strong relationship gives us. The feeling that a successful business gives us. The feeling that a full bank account gives us. the feeling of looking fit, being fit, at our ideal weight.
We don’t really care about the number on the scale, if the rest lines up.
We don’t really care if he’s blonde haired and blue eyed, if he adores us and we feel the security of his love.
We don’t want MONEY just to have money. We want the experiences and solutions it can provide for us. A number in the bank doesn’t really matter.
Those feelings and experiences that come with each of these is what we want.
And, the feeling of lack that we feel right now about not having exactly what we want stops us from fully experiencing the feeling of what we do have.
Each morning, become aware of the thoughts you wake up with. Are they positive or negative? What can you do to shift them to the positive if they are negative?
We always have two choices - listen to our heart or listen to our head.
The story in your head most often doesn’t serve you. The story in your heart, does.
When your mind is constantly asking “How” it’s because it feels a lack of something, and it’s trying to fix it.
That’s why we start with WHY. Why do we want to do something, or know something?
When we start with why, the HOW always shows up.
WHY will drive you to do amazing things; to become who you were meant to be!
What is your WHY? For anything? WHY are you on this planet? Your mission and purpose does not have to be something grandiose.
If you aren’t feeling particularly happy right now in some area of your life it’s because you are in a state of resistance.
There is where you are;
and where you want to be.
The part in the middle is the resistance.
Those are the two lives we lead!
We have two lives in which we exist in many areas of our singular life.
We start a diet, to lose twenty pounds.
We stay on it for a day and a half.
Ever joined a gym and quit? Tried to meditate? Started a business that floundered or is still floundering?
And, there's this - what have you LONGED to start but haven't yet, because you have "failed ahead of time in your mind?"
THAT is resistance.
We lay in bed, staring at the ceiling, thinking of that other life we want to be living. The one where we are skinny; buff and toned; with perfect skin and teeth; with a business or career that brings us joy and gangster income.
For most of us, we know exactly what we must do to cross over to that other life; to live it.
But, it’s resistance that keeps us stuck where we are.
We eat the pizza; go to happy hour instead of the gym; put off taking action in our business until tomorrow.
Do you feel me? Am I striking a nerve here?
We argue with where we are, and that keeps us further stuck. We fill our brain with these thoughts and so solutions to our dilemma stays at bay.
We look everywhere on the outside for the answer to our struggles, but it is within us all along. It’s the resistance to taking the right actions.
Commitment is scary, in many ways. It puts the responsibility squarely on us.
Think about one “other life” that you would like to be living. What is the resistance you are creating that’s stopping you from being there?
Now, PLEASE don’t fall into victim mode here and start coming up with every excuse outside of you and your lame actions that are stopping you.
Let’s just take weight; fitness; wellness.
If you have a smartphone, and I’m guessing you do, listening to this; then you have access to the best education to get you out of stuck in any area.
Weight - it takes nutrition and movement. Move more; eat appropriately. You don’t need a gym or any fancy equipment. Walk, lift water or wine bottles; use your body weight as resistance.
Maybe we should surrender exactly where we are and allow new solutions, inspired ideas and love to take over in ways we don’t understand.
It will all work itself out in magical ways that we can’t see. We just have to get out of the way.
If you are feeling resistance, let’s talk. Schedule a breakthrough call with me. Let’s see what solutions we might come up with.
