What’s the point of persisting in knocking on that door, trying to gain something or someone that’s been denied to you?
Because you want it? Because you once had it and lost it and now you want it back? Because you think it looks good and will feel good to have it but you don’t actually know?
Knocking on a closed door doesn’t feel good, does it?
As one of my favourite writers, James Altucher said,
So many people I talk with are unhappy because someone, at some point, blocked something they were working on. Like a blockage in the artery that prevented the heart from success.
They get obsessed with this blockage. They can’t stop thinking about it. They get angry. They can’t forgive. They can’t forget.
They get stuck. The “No” they got ended up defining them.
To me that’s more resistance than persistence, to keep pursuing something or someone who told you no.
What if instead of beating your head endlessly off that wall, hitting your fist against that door you decided to do something else?
What if you focus your attention on something different? It could be just a slightly different angle to your original pursuit or a pivot to a totally new interest and direction.
And what if you found doors that you were able to open, that actually opened up for you to walk through and you loved it and you kept going because its so much fun to hear yes. Yes, do this, Yes, be here. Yes to you.
Imagine, close your eyes and picture it in your mind and notice how you feel to move forward easily, accepted, rewarded, welcomed and treated with awe, joy, respect simply for being you and showing up and doing whatever’s needed.
Would you even give the other thing you once spent so much time, energy and angst chasing a fleeting thought?
Maybe. If only to ruefully shake your head at the limited vision you once had of what was and is available to you.
But now your eyes, your heart and mind are open. Open to new ideas, new thoughts, new possibilities and that feels amazing. You can imagine how great that feels can’t you.
Let go of all resistance. Instead persist in going after new things, seeking out opportunities that are open to you, people who welcome you in and see the value of who you are and are willing to work alongside you in making life successful.
Because you deserve your YES. We all do. So start by saying yes to yourself. Choose yourself. Say Yes.
PS. If you’ve been stuck, knocking on closed doors for way too long, if you’ve fought weight issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, or simply a feeling of general dissatisfaction with how your life is unfolding for you, and you feel like you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked. It’s natural to feel that a solution is almost impossible.
That’s part of what keeps the problem in place.
But real lasting change is possible.
Think how it would feel achieving your goals with far less resistance, whether it’s dropping excess weight, gaining freedom from depression and anxiety, being a rockstar in your business or career, or excelling in your personal relationships. You can do it, you have no fears about staying stuck and not moving forward anymore.
See yourself fully present and grounded, living with total fulfillment and satisfaction with how life is unfolding for you, with no regrets, as you carve your own path forward, moving forward always forward, no looking back .
