The book that is changing my life right now…

 

Hey Ladies!

So I’ve got to tell you about this book: “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield (linking here to make it easy for you to find, not a commission-type thing).

If you have not read this book, you need to go out and GET. THIS. BOOK.

Oh my God.

I’ve got to tell you this has been one of the biggest revelations of my life. It talks about something that we all experience but hardly ever talk about or confront directly: RESISTANCE.

Do any of these sound familiar?

  • You want to lose weight but you don’t exercise regularly?
  • You want to write a book, but it’s still in your head and you haven’t WRITTEN any of it yet?
  • Or you want to start a business but you haven’t gotten started?

Then you, my friend are experiencing RESISTANCE.

This phenomenon is what holds us back, that keeps us from doing our great work in the world.

We all have it.

And it shows up in some really sneaky ways.

But luckily there’s a way to identify, engage with, and finally OVERCOME it so you can get what you want in your life.

Here’s a sneak peek:

 

  1. Where does resistance show up in your life, work, or habits?
  2. Do you have any tools or tips that you use on the regular to break through?

  • Krissy, thank you so much for posting about this book. I’ve added it to my Amazon wish list and am looking forward to purchasing and reading. Resistance shows up most in my life when my alarm goes off and staying consistent with the things that actually work for me. For me the thing that continues to work for me is by journaling about why the thing is important to me (getting up when my alarm goes off) and creating a tracking sheet to hold myself accountable and track my progress. This especially works when I get off track.

    • Hi Brittany!! Thanks so much for your comment. YESS!!! Remembering your why is so important otherwise the “easier” unhealthy alternative actually looks like a pretty good option, right? Anchoring in the higher thinking is critical. Love that you use the tracking sheet too! Another tool you might consider is making the think you WANT to be doing more pleasurable and fun – I used to wake up in the morning and check my email and instagram in bed until I started telling myself “this is not fun, this is zoning out, these apps are designed to addict me, I want to feel free.” I defined freedom as being able to enjoy time on my yoga mat and have a relaxing morning. In the past, when scrolling felt like freedom because I didn’t need to get up, and yoga felt like a chore I NEVER did it! The mindset shift can be everything!
