As introverts, we’re especially prone to feeling a tug of war between living our purpose and hiding behind the status quo. How might this tug of war show up in your life? Possibly as a tug of war between “success” and “resistance.”
As an introvert, you might fear success because you believe it means becoming uncomfortably visible. You believe in your purpose, but if it means having a spotlight on you, making you feel vulnerable, forget it, you say. Or you embrace the status quo and don’t pursue success because you lack self-confidence or feel you’re “not good enough.”
Whatever the reason, we unconsciously use “resistance” as a way of postponing “success.” This resistance manifests as excuses. (We all know the particular excuses we come up with!)
Here are some ways you can reconcile yourself to “success” so your mind won’t feel the need to create excuses to moving forward.
Make “resistance” a thing of the past. By strategizing ways to be comfortably successful, you put resistance out of a job. Then you can be all about living your purpose joyfully.
