“To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
-Newton’s third law of motion
SO. I’m humming along through January like all you guys, full of ideas and new projects, and the third law of motion is starting to show up. The push-back.
This causes an emotional reaction, because it feels like I’m being stopped. When resistance shows up, it can feel like your goal is too hard, ill-conceived, or ultimately going to fail.
The belief that we are being stopped by outside forces is so visceral and automatic that we start blaming our circumstances as the reason why we are giving up. The truth is, we are stopped from the INSIDE out.
When I’m feeling confronted in life, it’s because I want something. I want something bigger or better than I’ve had before. And my lizard-brain is telling me, “You can’t have it.” So when resistance or push-back occurs, it looks like evidence. Evidence that I can’t have things the way I want them.
This, of course, is a lie.
Going beyond any set-point of creativity, generosity, self-improvement, or wealth takes concerted effort. I push out, and universal law pushes back. This is natural. But if I change my perspective from “this is too hard,” to “I can have it all,” then I change what’s possible for me. Physically. Circumstantially. Right now.
I am taking on something really HUGE in February. It looks like Mount Kilimanjaro. And there is alllll kind of resistance practically, emotionally, and strategically that’s showing up. Of course. But the outcome of this is so important to me that I am willing to break through to the other side. I’m willing to experiment with ways of BEING that will get me there. Can I practice being peaceful when the first big “No” shows up? (It actually just showed up 5 minutes ago, and so far I’m not flipping out). Can I have the attitude that “this is all part of the plan” when I encounter my third dead-end? Can I calmly do my work as scheduled, instead of going into a list-making frenzy when it looks like my efforts are failing?
I am experimenting with this in February and what I’m taking on is:
Who I am BEING on my journey will move more mountains than strategies and to-do lists ever could.
What are you up against this month? What are you gonna do with resistance?
I am offering a special, one-night-only teleclass on Wednesday, February 15th.
Manifesting Magic + Miracles: How to Stage Your Own U-Turn
For the first time, I will be sharing my own personal story of how I rebuilt my life after losing everything 3 years ago, and the BIG, FAT miracle I’m in the middle of making happen right now. This teleclass is for anyone who feels stuck, tired, hopeless, resigned, or out of luck. You CAN turn an impossible situation around. You CAN come back from heartbreak, divorce, or loss. This is a brass-tacks, practical discussion about how to stage a U-Turn when you’re at your wit’s end.
