Overcoming extreme resistance

First things first, it is a barefaced LIE that you need motivation in order to do anything.

You don’t!

It’s much easier to do something when you actually want to do it, but the truth is that if you want to master a skill, whether that is weight loss, playing guitar or entrepreneurship, then you need to do stuff even when you don’t feel like doing it.

In fact, especially when you don’t feel like doing it.


I know, I wish it was easier!

Sometimes you get into a situation where you recognise you have no motivation and that this would be a perfect time to practice discipline, but you still




You consciously make a poor choice that does not help to move you forward and then, of course, you beat yourself up about it.

Nobody wins!

I was feeling like this for a few weeks this summer. I really did not want to write or work on my business and would literally do anything else instead.

The dog needs a walk? No problem

You need some shopping from the store? I got your back.

Windows need a clean? On it!

A must-read new book? You don’t have to tell me twice!

I don’t know if it was the hot weather…side note, the UK just had an amazing period of warm sunny weather which has been so wonderful as us Brits don’t always get a good summer and I am a real sun bunny, like my spirit animal is lizard that likes to lie on a hot rock.

I digress. Perhaps it was the sunshine and I wanted to make the most of the delightful weather… it is surprisingly difficult to work outside with a laptop, although by golly I did try. Perhaps I needed a bit of a vacation, or perhaps there was something else entirely that was filling my head with other stuff so I didn’t have the mental space to sit and work.
