Release Resistance and Accomplish your GoalsWritten by Peter Murphy
Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try you just cannot seem to make significant progress? You learn some new skills and are excited about using them only you never seem to get around to applying what you learned. No matter what you do your life is like driving uphill with handbrake on!
What you are experiencing is resistance, one of biggest barriers to creating your life way you want it to be. Resistance happens when all parts of you are not pulling together to get you what you want. Thankfully there is a way of releasing resistance so that you can move ahead with greater ease.
Don't Assume You Can't Do It, Just Because Conventional Wisdom Say's You Can'tWritten by Josh Hinds
Be weary and leery when it comes to standardized tests and things of that nature that attempt to gauge your intelligence, aptitude, or ability to achieve at your given goal or dreams. Please don't misunderstand me, such things can and do have their place and even be quite effective in steering a person towards right career path, classes to take in college, or which educational degree to pursue.
The flip side of coin, however; is that they can also end up being terribly fatalistic with regards to what *you* believe you're suited for, career wise, starting your own business, etc., or personally capable of achieving for that matter! I can't help but wonder how many people have fallen victim to such things simply because they believed such tests to be all knowing.
Along same lines, what about how many people were literally discouraged from doing something they might otherwise have thoroughly enjoyed doing. Perhaps through shear perseverance even have come to excel in given area. One might cite Albert Einstein as such an example. Following his early years in education one would have been hard pressed to assume he'd earn label of "genius".
The problem as I see it, strictly from my observations and personal experience with a number of "great achievers" if you will, is that absolute love and excitement for what you do is far more often what leads to one's eventual success and achievements in a given area. Rarely is it how someone may, or may not have scored on a given test.
