“It’s the accumulated pressure of feelings that causes thoughts.
When we’re able to surrender the underlying feelings, all the topical thoughts disappear.”
How does this relate to your business and life?
When you have anxiety, or fear, or anger about “having to” do a task in your business, there’s an underlying feeling that is stopping you from doing that thing. Not the thoughts. The thoughts are a symptom. Not the problem.
It’s What Stephen Pressfield calls “The Resistance”.
Most of personal development gets this wrong. The thoughts are a problem, but there’s something deeper…
Maybe it’s calling a potential client, or reconciling your books, or having a tough conversation with your spouse…
When you’re able to stop fighting against yourself and your feelings,
your negative thoughts lose, and YOU win.
