Resistance of change

I’m going to warn you all at this point.  Since this is a concept I have been manipulating and working with in my own life, I will be talking about it ad nauseum.  I am doing this though to make a point. It is so important to learn to defeat and overcome resistance in our journey to self-actualization.  In this series, I’m going to be talking about it on a national level as it would apply to the current conditions in the United States and then drilling down to the personal level of life.  These will be the points that I am writing about.

Persistence in an industrial age mindset when we are in the idea or knowledge worker age.

Resisting changes at work

Resisting the change and growth of others

Resisting your own goals

Its important to keep the following definition of resistance in mind.  Michael Hyatt quoting Stephen Pressfield says “the Resistance is that invisible, destructive force that opposes you any time you try to accomplish something significant or make an improvement in any area of your life. For example, Resistance is that thing that makes you want to organize your closet when you sit down to write. Some of you know what I’m talking about.”

Michael Hyatt in his podcast number 44 talks about how to defeat it personally.  It is a great post that merits deeper thought and I will be referring to it frequently throughout this series.

My purpose in this series is to point out the absurdity of following Resitance, and the benefits of combating it on both macro and micro levels.  We’ll cover what Michael talks about and so much more in this series.

For now, I’m going to close with this question.

When and how does Resistance attack you in your life?
