Choose the Path of Most Resistance!

In the book, The Compound Effect, Darren Hardy talks about the need to choose the path of most resistance. He goes on with this: “To change your direction you will need to swim upstream, against the resistance of the rushing river, against your habitual tendency.”

“Low Resistance:
* Going along with the gossip
* Surrendering to peer pressure
* Saying yes to needless obligations
* Submitting to the crying demands of your children
* Starting your new program on “Monday” (instead of today)
* Reacting in anger
* Holding a grudge
* Giving the ‘silent treatment’

High Resistance:
* Going to the gym when you don’t feel like it
* Forgiving someone who wronged you
* Feeling the fear and doing it anyway
* Admitting you were wrong and apologizing
* Ordering the salad when you want the burger
* Saying no to (yet another) shot of tequila
* Calling that big, scary big prospect (again and again)

If you want to finally obtain what’s missing from your life, you need to stop always doing what you feel like doing and start doing the things that make you uncomfortable, the stuff you avoid, and the things that you think are hard.”

Questions Coaches Ask

Coaches ask questions, the kind of questions that even your best friend might not ask.

Coaching therefore calls for commitment to both honesty and humility. Remember, without the process, you won’t get to the product.

So here are 3 introductory questions you might hear from a Catalyst coach:

  •  What do you really want? (in business, your marriage, spiritual or physical health, etc)
  •  What is it that holds you back? (in other words, what’s keeping you from what you just said you wanted —   here’s where honesty is required!
  •  What is it costing you (and what will it cost you) to continue holding back?
