"The Resistance Session" with special guest Vanessa McHugh of Nadora Wellness
"Ignite the Spark. Light the Fire." STAR WARS―Resistance motto
Today we are talking about all things RESISTANCE and the burning question: Why do we often resist the things we want (to express)the most???
The actor who can’t audition. The hopeless romantic who can never find the right relationship. If you haven’t experienced it yourself, surely you’ve known others who’ve struggled with it to a pretty incredible degree: actively resisting what it is they want most (almost always through unconscious self-sabotage.) It’s something so many people do, but so few know to change, usually because they don’t know why it happens in the first place!
Listen folks! Life as we know it is about change, but what is a person to do when faced with resistance? Resistance to change manifests itself in so many ways, from foot-dragging and inertia to petty sabotage to outright rebellions. The best we can do, when experiencing change in our own life, is to understand the predictable, universal sources of resistance in each situation and then strategize around them.
Inspiration for this episode came from the Psychology Today article called: 'Why We Resist Change" and it got us CURIOUS! Please, if the brain science behind the concept of resistance, inertia, and the neurobiology of change gets you all fired up check out the article here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/blog/the-truisms-wellness/201701/why-we-resist-change
We also REALLY love the article: 'The 8 Reasons Why We Resist the Things We Want' by Brianna Wiest, for her practical tips and insight! https://thoughtcatalog.com/brianna-wiest/2015/09/8-reasons-why-we-resist-the-things-we-want-the-most/
The reality is we can’t always make ourselves or others feel comfortable with change, but we can can minimize the discomfort and strengthen our resolve. Diagnosing the sources of resistance is the first step toward good solutions. And feedback from being mindful of our resistance can even be helpful in improving the process of gaining acceptance for change.
