Practice – the resistance

There are times when I am writing or teaching or coaching that I need to check my “Imposter Syndrome.” Maybe it’s the syndrome or maybe it’s that I really don’t do what I am preaching at the level that my communication would indicate.

That’s how it is for me with practice. I must recognize my resistance and manage it, which includes accepting it as part of MY process of practice. Even when I want something, my ego will resist the actions needed to achieve what I want. And it’s sneaky.

I start out with great intentions, a plan of action, scheduled on my calendar…and when the time comes to practice, my inner voice starts: “It’s not that bad” or “You don’t really need to do this” or “Do it later…for now, do something you enjoy.”

And it’s only by making the practice enjoyable and the resistance a temporary part of it do I begin to practice.

What is it like for you? What does your “I don’t wanna!” sound like? Is it predictable?

I would love to hear from you and how you overcome it. Maybe make sharing a new practice?!

Now, go notice your resistance…and act anyway!
