When you are working toward goals and moving forward with something that can result in big changes in your life, the resistance will often show up. The bigger the goal, the bigger the resistance we can feel. Change can be scary.
What will success bring? What changes will come when we are successful? How will our life change? In an effort to protect us from the scary unknown, our subconscious will put up all kinds of resistance. It feels safer in that comfort zone. The subconscious is always trying to protect you and keep things comfortable.
Sometimes resistance will show up in the form of procrastination. It starts with a negative feeling: fear, feeling a little anxious, maybe a bad mood. We find ourselves getting distracted by other things. When we start building our business we want success but we may find ourselves sabotaging our efforts because we have a subconscious fear of change.
EFT can be a very helpful tool in working through feelings of resistance. Try the EFT session below whenever you feel a little resistance.
