A lot of people think that if you are meant to be great at something, everything should just fall into place—it should be easy. When a job, a relationship, or a skill doesn’t come easy to us, we get discouraged. At the first sign of an obstacle, some of us move on to something else and find ourselves constantly hopping from one situation to the next, while others give up altogether and settle for just making ends meet, thinking, “Maybe I’m not meant to be ….”
Every time a person makes a commitment, three things happen to them.
First, the person rounded up the courage to commit, that’s the easiest part.
Second, the person begin to experience resistance. The difficulty of a keeping the commitment begin.
Third, is where the rubber meets the road, the individual have to make a choice .
Have you ever quit smoking or start a new fitness program? Have you ever made any New Year’s resolutions? You might say to yourselves, ” I’m going to quit smoking this year. I’m going to take better care of my body this year.” Whatever the goal is, it’s so easy to make that commitment. That’s why many people make New Year’s resolution, yet so few of those resolutions stuck around after a few months.
Resistance is the toughest challenge for most people. Sometime it feels as if after a person make a commitment, their brain begin to think up all the reasons in the world why they can’t follow through with that promised.
A person may say they are going to start a workout program, then come, “My wife and I are having a hard time,” or, “My boyfriend and I are not doing so well,” or, “Things are tough, I’m really stressing, so this is not a good time to start this new fitness program.”
For these people, the moment they make a commitment, all of the reasons in the world to avoid that commitment come out of the woodwork to cling onto them and holding them back. This resistance we are speaking of, it can come from internal—self-doubt , stuck in the comfort zone or fear. It can also be an external thing—family, friends or other people telling you, “you can’t.”
To give yourself a chance to achieve all of the wonderful things in life. You must choose to overcome resistance, such as fear, self-doubt and the un-enlightens. They are the causes that cripple most people, don’t let that happen to you.
Get yourselves into the right frame of mind, have a good attitude and stay focus on your goal. At time it might feel scary, the feeling of out of control…like a free fall. And you may wish to go back to what was familiar. However, you must remember that if you turn back you will stay the same. This little bit of un-comfortableness is what it is going to take to push you over the top.
Allow yourselves to do some free falling and trust that you will always land on your feet. Some things in life you can only find out the result by diving in. Go give free falling a try, or you will never know what you can become?
