No problem at all


It's perfectly natural to feel resistance toward the things you have to do. Yet there is no need for that resistance to get the best of you.


You can acknowledge that resistance and allow it. Then, you can just as easily choose to let it go.


After all, the resistance is something you have created. Without your active support, it melts away.


Imagine the freedom of simply doing what must be done, without having to fight against it. You can always choose to enjoy that freedom and the effectiveness it brings.


It's normal to feel resistance when circumstances or other people compel you to do something. That's true even if it's something you would enjoy doing anyway.


Keep in mind that most of what makes a task unpleasant is your attitude toward it. Acknowledge your resistance, quickly let it go, and many of the things you once dreaded will become no problem at all.


-- Ralph Marston
