When you are growing in any area of your life, it's a natural part of the process to feel resistance. That's OK. But don't let it stop you from what you know will make your heart sing.
You can push past the resistance. It could look like pushing gently. Or if you're really ready to soar, it's possible to rewire your reactions so that you can jump right in to what's next. It's a process and your pace will vary.
If you find yourself digging in your heels about something, try to be honest with yourself about where that's coming from. I recently heard this quote: "The truth will set you free, but first it wil piss you off!"
Tap into your intuition (or some might call it that "gut feeling"). Pay attention to whether there is real or imagined danger. If you listen, you'll know which fears are the ones that are protecting you and which ones are irrational beliefs--or self doubt that someone else planted anyway. Cleaning that up can be as simple as saying "return to sender."
So when the resistance comes up, plug into your support system, gather your infinite courage, take a breath, and when you let that breath out, ask yourself what is the one action that you can take right now to get you moving in the direction of your dream? Listen for the answer. Then, take action! Small steps. You can do this!
