I was perusing my own blog posts, from seven years ago, and I saw this one, titled “Let Resistance Be Your Guide.” Here’s the part that grabbed my attention today…
We can navigate by Resistance, letting it guide us to that calling or action that we must follow before all others.
Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.
That’s the part Steven Pressfield wrote. And here’s the part I wrote…
Wondering if that project’s worth pursuing? If it wasn’t you wouldn’t be questioning it so much. If it wasn’t you wouldn’t feel so tired just thinking about it. If it wasn’t, you wouldn’t have three empty notebooks with the project’s name carefully written on the cover and nothing inside. If it wasn’t, you wouldn’t be asking all your friends what they think of it.
Chances are – and this might be the scary part – Resistance knows what’s good for you even better than you do.
Earth to Matt, are you getting this message?
