#Aligned30 Daily Challenge #13 – Resistance!


Challenge 13 – only two left – lets turn the heat up a little and finish up with a bang.
Steven Pressfield talks about resistance in his book The War of Art:

“Resistance will tell you anything to keep you from doing your work. It will perjure, fabricate, falsify; seduce, bully, cajole. Resistance is protean. It will assume any form, if that’s what it takes to deceive you. It will reason with you like a lawyer or jam a nine-millimeter in your face like a stickup man. Resistance has no conscience. It will pledge anything to get a deal, then double-cross you as soon as your back is turned. If you take Resistance at its word, you deserve everything you get. Resistance is always lying and always full of shit.”
Steven Pressfield, The War Of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle

So your challenge today is to look at your life and see what you are resisting. Maybe you are resisting taking that first step in a new business, maybe you are resisting having that difficult conversation, you could be resisting doing your taxes – I think you get the idea. Pick something that you are resisting and take at least a step to overcome it. Have that conversation, take that first step (however small).

Resistance is a good indicator that something is out of alignment (physically and otherwise). The stronger the resistance to something the bigger the impact it is having on your life, and your access to the Aligned life you want to create.

Let us know how it went… #Aligned30
