In this episode, Kellan talks about resistance. We’ll be hearing about resistance in three parts – what it is, why it is, and dealing with it.

When working toward any goal, you’ll be faced with some form of resistance -the block or hurdle that tries to get between you and Your Ultimate Life. While we might think of external factors that slow our progress, Kellan tells us that the Resistance that has the biggest impact is actually internal – our own thoughts and reasons that we give ourselves to avoid doing the things we want to do.

While resistance tries to deter you from following the path to your goal, overcoming that resistance is what allows you to grow. Like physical exercise, you need to push back against the gravity of your resistance in order to reach your goal – one small step at a time.

It only takes one small victory to remind you that, even when you relapse, you at least have the ability to achieve a small victory – and that counts as progress toward creating Your Ultimate Life.

Key Takeaways:

  • “The resistance is all the reasons that you create to not do what you want to do.”
  • “The resistance you feel to doing the thing you want to do is the gravity against which you must work in order to reach your goal.”
  • “Pushing past that resistance makes you stronger. It is there to make what you achieve worthwhile.”
  • “Without opposition, there is no worthwhile accomplishment.”
    “When someone gives you something, it doesn’t mean the same as when you earn it.”
  • “Resistance is necessary; resistance is constant; resistance is universal –every single person who’s trying to do anything at all feels it.”
  • One small victory means a lot.
    “If you can do it once, maybe you can do it again. Maybe you relapse and you have to get up and recommit, but you still know that you did it.”
  • “Gradually, by simply showing up in small, measurable ways, you accumulate a track record of overcoming the resistance.”
