When you make a commitment to a certain goal, you set the stage for several things to happen. Failure and disappointment will typically show up first.
Many people stop right there, finding it too painful to push beyond this. People in the “habit” of succeeding recognize and welcome that as merely the first step. And people really familiar with the work it takes to succeed, use this as a tool to support their continued accomplishment, such as, keep “pushing through” the resistance.
The bigger the challenge, often the more the resistance, which may show up as fear, frustration, anger, dissatisfaction, or annoyance in the pre-breakthrough state.
To quote a client that is having daily breakthroughs in his ability to make cold calls-“Why didn’t I start this years ago?” and “What was all the resistance about?” These are two questions clearly demonstrating a very common experience on the post-breakthrough side.
