The wise words of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Then I had to think about it. If you’re not trusting “The Force” in your life and business, what are you doing?
Giving in to the dark side.
What is the dark side?
That invisible force that keeps you from doing what you know you ought to be doing.
I experience Resistance, and the Force, daily.
I feel the battle.
When I get up early every morning, usually 4:30 a.m., to start my day, I hear that voice telling me I need to sleep in, rest, just for a few more minutes.
I usually regret it if I listen to it.
My regret is felt while I’m trying to catch up throughout the day. Trying to catch up on things that feel like they’re lagging.
However, when I trust The Force and get up when I say, make my bed, do my morning routine and get to my home office by 6:00 a.m., I feel great, productive and ready for the day.
“Resistance cannot be seen, touched, heard, or smelled. But it can be felt. We experience it as an energy field radiating from a work-in-potential. It’s a repelling force. It’s negative. Its aim is to shove us away, distract us, prevent us from doing our work.”~ Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
In business, I feel resistance working on that new marketing campaign. There are fear and doubt. There’s worry about losing money, and there’s uncertainty if it’s the right thing to to do.
There’s resistance when trying to outsource. What if I pick the wrong person? What if I lose money, what if…
When I trust The Force, I am more in harmony with my true nature.
What is The Force?
Let’s flip the above description of Resistance.
The Force cannot be seen, touched, heard, or smelled. But it can be felt. We experience it as an energy field radiating from a work-in-potential. It’s an attracting force. It’s positive. Its aim is to move us closer, focus us, encourage us to do our work.
I chose to call The Force, God, or the Holy Spirit. You are welcome to call it anything that allows you to allow IT in.
Regardless, there’s a daily battle being waged for your time, energy and resources. The Resistance wants to steal, kill and destroy your time, energy and resources. The Force wants to give, inspire and create more for you.
If you’re letting Resistance get the best of you and your business. If you’re scared to make that hire or outsource that task you have no business doing, then consider signing up for a “Resistance-Resisting, Force-Attracting Consultation” to discuss taking YOU and YOUR BUSINESS to the next level.
Trust The Force.
