Do you ever feel resistance when it comes to achieving your goals or taking important steps in your business? It's natural to feel internal resistance when setting new goals but remember that the ONLY way something will change is by YOU stepping up and becoming more, doing more, or learning more..
Easier said than done, right?
Here’s one simple yet effective hack I found to work whenever I get overwhelmed or stuck thinking about accomplishing something.
I start by meditating on how I will feel in one year if I don't take action on my new goal. If my bank account looked the exact same, or my challenges 1 year from now are the EXACT same! If the goal is a worthy and authentic one, the feelings I experience during the meditation session are not great (to say the least).
Then I imagine how I'll feel in 2-5 years, 10 years, and even 20 years if nothing changes. I think about my future self and how I'll feel if I never tried to make any changes in the areas I’ve identified. The regret and shame I often experience in this meditation, or deep thought session can be a powerful motivator to take action today.
This mental exercise helps me push through the discomfort I may feel when stepping outside of my comfort zone. It honestly helps me move beyond fear TODAY and into action NOW. In essence I am linking the pain of future failure to today.
Ultimately, I know this exercise can help you achieve the goals you've set for yourself, and it can help you create the life you want for the future. It might provide that extra push you need to get moving on whatever it is you’re struggling to implement in your business.
So, the next time you feel resistance, try this mental exercise. Think about your future self, and let that vision push you to take action today. It may not be easy, but it will be worth it.
