“To change your life, you have to change the way you think. Behind everything you do, is a thought. Every behavior is motivated by a belief. Every action is promoted by an attitude. Be careful of how you think. Your life is directed by your thoughts!”

Overcome Resistance and Live Your “Most Amazing Future”

It’s that time of year again.  The holidays are upon us, a year ends, and another one begins.  It’s a great time to reflect; to look at your life and where you are currently, and where you’d like to go.

Many of you may have read my latest blog series, The River of Resistance.  In it, I write about us having two lives.  The life we are currently living, and our unlived life, also known as our dream life or our most amazing future.  What separates us from that unlived life is resistance, and I like to call it the River of Resistance.  There are 5 major obstacles in that river that could stop you from attaining your unlived life.

I think it’s fitting that the last newsletter of the year would be a summary of those obstacles and include a way to remind you how to beat them and create the life of your dreams.  Anything is possible, and the magic of this time of year really tends to remind us of that.

Let’s review each of them here:

Obstacle 1: The Walrus – Laziness

Obstacle 2: The Mermaid – Temptation and Addiction

Obstacle 3: The Crabs – Negative Thoughts and Naysayers: Move beyond the negative thoughts and opinions of yourself and those around you.

Obstacle 4: The Shark – Fear: We’ve all been gripped by fear in our lives.  Remember that courage is not the absence of fear, but acting in the face of it.

Obstacle 5: The Library – Re-reading Negative Chapters from the Past: Learn how re-reading the negative chapters from your life keeps you stuck, and how important it is to re-read the positive ones.

Most of us have all probably dealt with one or more of those obstacles in our lifetime.  But there are ways to overcome them.  Each one of them has a weapon to battle through them, on to your most amazing future and unlived life.  To help you remember what those are, I’ve created a “Blueprint for Success” that you can download here for free. Print it out, hang it up and let it remind you that there is always a way to deal with whatever is in the way of your biggest and best life.  It’s an incredibly courageous thing to face your challenges head on, and it’s my hope that using this Blueprint helps you do that.

Strength and Honor,
