"Procrastination is the most common manifestation of resistance because it's the easiest to rationalize.” ~Steven Pressfield

Today's Mind Bullet builds off last week's powerful episode, E-Brake, which explored the idea that our personal emergency brakes are holding us back from true success. Today we explore more about resistance and its profound effect on our goals.

We often think our biggest problem is not finishing things we start. While this is often true, you can't overstate the importance of starting—overcoming that initial resistance and moving toward a goal. 

Resistance is all around us. Psychological and physical barriers are plentiful. Psychological resistance visits us in the form of overthinking, finding a billion reasons not to start on a goal.

There are real physical barriers to starting a goal, as well. In our interview with Fred Gratzon, author of The Lazy Way to Success, we learned about the "principle of least action." Everything trends toward not moving—a body not in motion tends to stay not in motion. 

Listen in to learn how to overcome the physical and psychological resistance we face when starting a goal, getting back on track when we falter, and how to stop feeding the ready excuses that fuel inaction.

Enjoy the episode!
