Have you ever wondered what is standing in the way of achieving your goals? Do you have long-held dreams and aspirations that are not realized yet? Do you know why some people are more successful than others? Well, I am trying to help you answer some of these questions to identify the inner enemy that stands in the way of fulfilling our most cherished dreams!

The enemy is resistance!!

Resistance is the inner barrier or the obstacle that prevents us from acting towards our goals and achieving our dreams. It is rooted in fear, self-doubt and limiting beliefs and can manifest as procrastination, self-sabotage, or a lack of motivation. Resistance can create a sense of paralysis or inaction and can prevent us from taking the necessary steps towards our goals. We may find ourselves making excuses or justifying why we can’t pursue our dreams or may simply avoid acting altogether.

Overcoming the inside enemy: resistance, requires a combination of practical tools and strategies that can help you break through barriers and achieve your goals. Here are some effective tools and strategies to consider:

§  Build Self-Awareness: Developing self-awareness can help you recognize when resistance is creeping in and why. This can help identify the key triggers, patterns and behaviors that are holding you back. You can build self-awareness by regularly reflecting on your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and seeking feedback from trusted mentors and friends.

§  Break Goals into Small Steps: Setting small, achievable goals can help you build momentum and overcome resistance. When you break down your goals into manageable steps, you will be less likely to feel overwhelmed and more likely to be consistent towards your goals.

§  Establish a Daily Routine: Establishing a daily routine that involves specific actions towards your short and long-term goals can help you overcome resistance. When you have a daily routine in place, you are less likely to procrastinate or get distracted. For example, if your goal is to write a book, you could commit to writing 20 minutes every morning before you start your day.

§  Find an Accountability Partner: Having an accountability partner can provide you with the motivation and support to conquer resistance. When you know that someone else is counting on you, you will be less likely to give in to your doubts and fears.

§  Practice Self-Compassion: Being kind and compassionate to yourself can help you overcome resistance. Always remember that failures and setbacks are natural part of the journey toward achieving your dreams. When you practice self-compassion, you will be better equipped to bounce back from setbacks and stay motivated.

By implementing these practical tools and strategies, you can overcome resistance and achieve your goals. Remember that overcoming resistance is a process, and it may take time and persistence to break through your barriers. But with a clear vision, a plan, and a willingness to act, you can reach your dreams and become the person you always wanted to be.
