Path of MOST Resistance
To succeed you need to take the path of most resistance.
Read any success story and most have a common theme, struggle then success. Art Williams said it this way “If you want to win you need to be controversial” When in doubt, choose the harder task or what you don’t want to do – that’s usually what you should do!
It becomes a habit taking the path of least resistance.
I know when I need to get something done I don’t want to do I tend to find things to do that take me from what is uncomfortable to do. But it’s the uncomfortable thing that is what is needed to move me closer to my goals. I know when I decided to join a network marketing business it was very uncomfortable with friends and family, but if I had listened to them and taken the path of list resistance I would have denied over 5000 people the opportunity to do something different. The path of most resistance is normally the path you need to take. It’s kind of like a fireman. When everyone else is running out of the building they are running into it.
Take the path of most resistance, when others run out you run in.
I was talking to a friend about an online opportunity. He called me the next day to tell me “it sounded like a scam” that he read a lot of bad things about it. I remember when I first joined MonaVie , in fact the whole time I have been with MonaVie, all the “Scam this scam that, MonaVie is this and MonaVie is that” Good thing I didn’t listen to them. It’s almost like, the more crap you read on the internet about an opportunity the better the opportunity. “If you’re not making waves you can be the wave” Vincent St.Louis. If you wait until everyone is doing it; you never get to see the miracle of God parting the red sea.
If your heart tells you it’s good. Check it out make sure you’re all in then take the first step on the path of most resistance.
