I’ll wait

Until I’m fit enough to go to the gym

In your head, the story might go a bit like this.

When I’m more successful than I am right now I’ll do the thing that successful people do.

Of course, it’s a trap. Resistance. Friction to your momentum.

The antidote?

Try consistently doing something that moves you in the general direction you want to go in.

Be ok with ever-decreasing circles. Continue circling around and around until you are ready to listen to what you actually want to do.

And when you are ready.

Give yourself permission to live in the gap between success and failure for as long as is necessary.

I’ve yet to find a magic trick to resistance but I find persistence and a kind spirit to the way you work helps.
