How do you tell the difference between Resistance and Being Out of Alignment?
Start by thinking of the activity, person, circumstance, event.
Are you avoiding out of fear, irritation, or worry?
Then you’re resisting.
Are you avoiding it out of intuition, a gut feeling, or calm sense of knowing it is a clear no for you?
Then it is not in alignment for you.
I always say to do what turns you on and lights you up, and I still believe that to be true.
But I also believe we have to push ourselves with grace through the resistance.
When you really take a look at it, are you resisting the things, activities, people and circumstances that can truly help you and serve you? I know I do. And that just doesn’t work for me any longer.
I’m challenging myself to look at what I’m doing and reverse engineer it if I don’t like the way I feel about it or the resistance I have to it.
I’m rating myself on a 1-10 on my own “Benefactor Factor” scale.
1 being this is a bad idea or horrible for me.
10 being this could only positively benefit me.
When resistance shows up, I simply ask myself, “What is my Benefactor Factor?”
If it’s more than a 5, then I push myself to go and do the thing because I believe that “what we resist the most is best for our own soul.”
What would your life look like if you started saying yes to the things that you typically resist?
– Networking events
– Going on camera
– Private outreach
Think about all of the opportunity in what you are rejecting out of habit and out of pure resistance.
There is so much power in your decision to push through.
What will you see on the other side?
I hope you let me know.
Go get it, girl!
