Understanding resistance: how to tell if something is not right for you
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Amanda E.
How do you know the difference between when resistance is because something isn't right for you vs. resistance because you REALLY need to do it to take yourself to the next level? Thanks so much, David!
What a fantastic question!
I think it would help if we used a specific example here, and because so many entrepreneurs resist sales, let’s use that as the example.
First things first. When you decide to do anything in your business it is important to ask the question,
“Is this taking me closer to my goal, or further away?”
We know that the lifeblood of any business is really sales. If you don’t have sales you don’t have a business.
Making sales calls WILL bring you closer to your goal, if your goal is to build your business.
Yet many people will tell me that they are not sales people; that it’s just not in their personality.
And it’s a big lie. They are resisting doing the thing that will grow their business because of fear.
The crazy thing is that many people won’t even try. To really understand if something is not for you, you have to do it long enough to determine if it’s not for you.
Herein lies the difference between knowing if something is not right for you or if you’re resisting something.
I’m sure you’ve all heard the phrase, “You won’t know if you like it until you try it.” There’s a lot of truth to that statement.
If you’re wondering if you’re resisting something, get very honest with yourself. Determine if doing it will bring you closer to your goal, and if it will, DO IT!
