When resistance comes up for me I procrastinate, avoid and hide.
I spend time talking and thinking about what I want…when actually really I am just trying to talk myself out of it.
Total responsibility. It’s a funny thing.
On one hand, it is great to be able to know you can change anything at any time if you don’t like the result. On the other hand, it sucks because you are…..well responsible. There is no one for you to blame.
And that’s what we like to do as humans right?
I was talking with Coach Michelle last week and we were discussing my goals and the daily action steps that we had created.
I had to admit was, I wasn’t doing them.
I was saying I wanted to eat healthier, but I was gobbling up sugar.
I was saying I wanted to have more energy, but I was drinking everything, but water.
I was saying I wanted more clients, but I wasn’t making sales calls.
I was saying I wanted to feel better in my body, but I was choosing sleep over exercise.
And when she asked me why and what I needed to get moving. My only response was I need to make a decision and then act on it.
I have coached with Michelle long enough to know what I need to do. I know what I need to eat, how to make a schedule, how to create an easy plan to reach my goals, how to make space and time for self- care, how to step out boldly and confidently live outside of my comfort zone.
I know all I need to know. The key I had to admit was I was CHOOSING not to do it.
That was my breakthrough. I was choosing to take action steps that would get me the opposite of what I said I wanted.
I was choosing to stay small, tired, heavy, overwhelmed, drained. I was choosing to stay in my comfort zone.
That was a fascinating viewpoint. I clearly saw my life as my choice and my responsibility.
Now, even with that revelation, I will admit, I did not jump right up and get back on track. I am easing into it…however, in each moment I choose not to take action, I am highly aware it is a choice.

Women have lost the ability to trust in their own heart, listen to their bodies and believe in themselves and that is fueling our life of fear and scarcity.
It is part of my life’s purpose to help every woman reconnect with themselves and live a confident , prosperous life where you have the money, time and freedom to explore and create the life of your dreams.
It all starts with believing in you.” Jenean Zunk
