Combat Resistance to Action

Like most people there are those items in my day-to-day life that bring up resistance.   A few people – Mel Robinson, and Stephen Guise talk about using a countdown method for starting off their day.  Both use the method when challenged or confronted by resistance.

A night person by nature – getting out of bed in the morning is one of most common resistance factors for me.  I have tried the countdown method and find that before the number 5 is reached I am out of bed.

Recently I have taken to utilizing the method when fear – always the underlying factor behind resistance – shows up for business related activities.  Recently at a networking event the countdown method worked wonderfully, I actually walked away with new connections and enjoyed myself.

It is a method that I am working on incorporating when I feel stuck or catch myself putting off what needs to be done.

Try it – you may be surprised by the results.
