When we resist change, we are clinging to old ideas and limiting beliefs. ๐–๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐ž ๐…๐จ๐œ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐†๐จ๐ž๐ฌ ๐„๐ง๐ž๐ซ๐ ๐ฒ ๐…๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ๐ฌ. Focusing on the problem makes the problem bigger. Focusing on the Solution makes the Solution bigger.

The DC Local Leaders Podcast shares the #Mindset, #motivation & #Success Habits of Impactful Leaders.

Resistance can be procrastinating and listening to the voices in our heads telling us weโ€™re some version of not enough; youโ€™re not good enough, smart enough, young enough, old enough, thereโ€™s not enough time, even if you achieve it โ€ฆyouโ€™re not enough to keep it.

This negative self-talk that feeds our self-doubt is created by our limiting beliefs, fears, and our selfish opinion of how something or someone โ€œshouldโ€ be.

If we focus on our fears, then they get bigger in our heads. We may even rehearse different scenarios in our mind where things go poorly. It feels like watching a movie in the screen of our awareness where we are the lead character and it somehow turns into a horror film.

We are effectively doing a visualization #meditation on the fear and negativity that we are hoping to avoid but instead we are sending more energy and bringing more awareness to it. The Brains filter The Reticular Activating system kicks on in high alert to bring us more of what we focus on the most and unfortunately, itโ€™s the very thing we hoping to avoid.

Itโ€™s like procrastinating on something we know we should do. Procrastinating feels like pushing it out of our minds temporarily (Resisting) but somehow when we do it ends up being all we think about all day. (Persisting)
