We’ve got something we want to do; an idea that just has to become real. However, there is this resistance that’s stopping us from moving forward.
The resistance can be irrational; we’ve got negative thoughts kicking around, self-doubt, and limiting beliefs that are holding us down. Or, the resistance is rational; we’ve got a few adverse conditions that need to be resolved before we can carry on. Knowing the difference helps us figure out how to deal with it.
Unfortunately, this happy little distinction is not so black and white. Each and every one of us, myself included, has a nasty tendency of taking irrational fears and masking them as rational. It takes a great deal of introspection and self-discipline to discern the difference.
