How Do You Face Resistance?

[Dear Readers, I apologize for my long absence from the blog. A series of writing projects with deadlines have kept me busy since early January.]

USA, New Jersey, Jersey City, Woman leaning on table looking on green peasThis morning, I listened to Michael Hyatt’s newest podcast “How to Overcome the Resistance.”  He talks about resistance as “that invisible, destructive force that opposes you any time you try to start a new project or make an improvement in any area of your life.” Does that sound familiar?

In the introduction to his podcast, Hyatt assigns four attributes to resistance. Resistance is: invisible, internal, insidious, and infallible. He says it comes in the forms of procrastination, distraction, and abandoning the work altogether, and these forms take root in fear, uncertainty, and doubt. The solution, of course, is to start, focus, and finish.

The question is How? Mr. Hyatt offers several suggestions in his podcast. I highly recommend that you take time to listen.

Maya Angelou said, “There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you.” So, readers, how do you overcome the resistance? What methods do you use to start, focus, and finish? Please weigh in with your comments.
