If youíve read the parts one, two, and three in the Overcoming Underearning series, inspired by my friend Barbara Stannyís awesome book Overcoming Underearning, you have a sense of what might be getting between you and prosperity. But in case youíre still unclear, I wanted to share some more of Barbaraís brilliant wisdom.
As soon as you enter the discomfort zone, you will automatically trigger resistance from within you. Itís only natural. But if you canít get a handle on it, you wonít be able to move forward. So insight into your resistance is the first step. How will you know if youíre resisting?
12 Signs You’re In Resistance
- Youíre too busy.
- You procrastinate.
- Youíre scared into inaction.
- You defer decisions.
- You lose interest.
- Youíre forgetful.
- Youíre disorganized.
- You fog up, space out.
- You feel paralyzed.
- You find reasons not to act.
- Youíre impatient.
- You keep running into naysayers.
So What Do You Do If You’re In Resistance?
As long as youíre stuck in resistance, youíll keep underearning and you wonít achieve your dreams. You just wonít. I hate to say it so bluntly, but itís true. Believing you will is magical thinking. You canít just ask the universe for what you need and then sit back on your laurels and hope the money comes flowing in.
This is exactly why I developed my new e-course: Get Out Of Your Own Way: Free Yourself From Fear And Worry & Leap Into Your Dreams. Every single one of those signs of resistance describes perfectly how we get in our own way, and until we can overcome the resistance that keeps us stuck, we wonít move forward.
To overcome resistance, Barbara makes these suggestions:
Are you resisting making more money? What belief lies at the heart of your fears? What decision can you change in order to liberate yourself and overcome your resistance?
