EP20: Resistance is Actually a Huge Benefit

“The only real failure happens when we stop creating.” – Malorie Nicole (1:14 – 1:26)

Malorie Nicole Abundantly Clear How to view resistance positively. A frequent topic of discussion among entrepreneurs is how to deal with setbacks when establishing goals, and how to find the best way to move forward.

Setbacks can present themselves in various ways. Maybe you’ve you’ve tried a new approach to acquiring clients, and it didn’t work out. Or, perhaps you’ve achieved financial success, but you’re not feeling fulfilled because of the way you’re running your business.

We tend to view these situations as failures, and we think that we’ll never be happy and fulfilled no matter how hard we try. However, the resistance can be a huge benefit to you, and it can be the catalyst that puts you on the path that you’re meant to be on.

“It’s about the process of creating something that fulfills you, brings you joy, and brings you the money that you want to make, but doing it from a place that feels like flow.” – Malorie Nicole (5:14 – 5:28)

Instead of viewing certain situations as failures, a better perspective is to look at them as opportunities to explore. When we fall into the trap of defining every result as failure or success, we limit our creativity. A setback is not the final verdict on success or failure.

It’s an opportunity to evaluate if you’ve created a life that’s not only financially sustaining, but also if it’s bringing you the joy you want to feel every day. There is a connection between resistance and synchronicity.

The only real failure happens when you quit and stop creating opportunities for yourself to grow. Fall in love with the process of what you’re trying to build, and try to explore and uncover the next growth piece for you. When you slow down and reveal the source of the resistance, you’ll create room for greater expansion in your life.

We view a particular event as a failure because that’s how we define it. But what if there was no such thing as failure? When you look at everything from a perspective of synchronicity, then you’ll accept that some of the things you try will work, and others won’t.

When something doesn’t work out, instead of thinking about it as a door that’s closing, think of it as the reason that you’ll discover many other doors that are now open. When you adopt the synchronicity mindset, you’ll realize those seemingly negative situations actually led you in the direction you’ve been aiming for the entire time.

“It’s not just about achieving financial success, but it’s also about creating and feeling good while doing it.” – Malorie Nicole (10:07 – 10:16)

The next time something doesn’t go according to your plans, and you feel the resistance and stress, recognize it as a sign to explore. Maybe you’re experiencing success financially, but you’re not being honest with yourself about how you feel about the work, or you haven’t set up the right boundaries with clients. Perhaps you need to explore new creative elements that you haven’t tried before.

Your path will always be unique, regardless of the type of business you’re in. Your job is to explore and figure out how you can live happily and express your unique gifts and talents to make the world a better place.
