“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain
When we embark on anything new, perhaps a new project, learning a new skill, or trying to install a new habit, we will always experience resistance. This resistance is natural. Our brains are wired to automate things and have a tendency of getting into a groove, much like the groves on a record. To change, we start small, stay consistent, and suddenly this new “thing” becomes a habit–your mind has automated it.
The next time you feel resistance about starting that diet, your next book, a difficult project, or learning something new–keep in mind that resistance is part of the process. Ignore the resistance and move forward. If you decide that the thing you’re doing isn’t serving you, feel free to drop it. Keep experimenting, keep trying new things, particularly those new things that will improve your life.
I hope everyone is enjoying FRIDAY!!
Until next time…
