Imagine this scenario....
One bright and sunny day, you and your lovely husband decided to leave the city for a short break... Its your quarterly reality check! 
So you checked-in a hotel resort & spa, greeted warmly by the friendly staff. You walked into your plush deluxe suite and start designing your life together...You spend the whole stay planning the bright, bright future...what's going to happen in 50 years, what you're going to achieve in 10 years, what's coming up in 5 years, what will be in store in 1 year and what awesome goals you're going to acquire in 3 months time.
And it started out splendid because the very next day you met up with a future business partner! Fantastic!! You jump for joy and head home with your hubby determined to take on the unknown.....but then suddenly the unknown hits hard and takes you on first!

You lost your handbag and money!!! You got an allergic reaction from all those Spanish seafood tapas that you had at the resort!!! The bank suddenly credited your account for a payment that you've already paid!!! Your mood spirals out of control and all you want to do is scream at your husband!!! Where will this end!!!!
Should you just throw in the towel and give it all up???

This is the time where all I want to do is to just shut everything out and stare into blank space. All I want to do is to just give up and hope that it will all be over soon. That is exactly what I would do if it were not for a short podcast that I heard this morning from Mr Michael Hyatt. Life saver! 

Resistance
Resistance is that powerful gloom-and-doom feeling that you feel when you are about to start something remarkable in your life for instance in my case, progressing to the next level in my weightloss and wellness business. Its that great massive invisible boulder that suddenly drops in front of you out of nowhere threatening to ruin your journey. Its that imaginary stab in the heart that gets you every time. Now is the time to deal with it!

#1 - Deal With Your Fear
The number one feeling that I have whenever the Resistance shows its face is the sinking feeling of fear. And I haven't even gotten started yet on my goals! It's so amazing that sometimes the fear have nothing to do with the goals that I am trying to achieve. For example, my main task in my business is to help people to lose weight in a healthy way but then the Resistance shows itself in the form of "A lost handbag". I mean, what does that have to do with achieving my goals? 

And what's the instinctive thing to do? Procrastinate. Chicken out and maybe do it tomorrow or after the cat's 9th birthday (if I'll ever have a cat that is!). Well...we all know where that will lead to.

So what's the best thing to do? Try Start. Just start the ball rolling! So with that in mind, I took a step back and called the last few people I met if they saw my handbag...and guess what? They did! Then I went on ahead with my plans...and today is the most happiest day out of the whole week! Seriously powerful advice....Just Start and Do It!

#2 - Deal With Uncertainty
The second thing that I felt is the Uncertainty that I'm never going to make it. It's never going to happen. Even if I did anything progressive, I'm never going to be able to get even my first five customers....yep, I've felt that way dozens of time. So the podcast gave me an advice to Focus! Sharp like a laser and stop being like an incandescent light bulb, dispersing energy all over the place. Focus your energy on your goals! Distractions are everywhere and the biggest one has got to be the Resistance.

So with a mental slap on the face, I gave it a shot. Focus on your dreams! Just like the law of attraction, the phone rang and an excited customer told me her weightloss results. That instantly gave me a boost and I know I will make it through the Whatevers. Second awesome advice...Focus!

#3 - Deal With Doubt
Yes, I do agree with the podcast that Doubt comes about when we're about to finish a task or a project. My knee-jerk reaction would be to just quit and dive into my duvet where I'm safe. But that would be the typical me and I vow from now on that I've got to believe in myself and from now on, I just need to push through to the end which comes to our third advice...finish the work!

So with that in mind, if anyone says "Give up little lady?"....here's my short answer:

NEVER!!!!!

Happy Wednesday people! ^_^
