Take the Step That You’re Sure You Can’t (Conclusion)

The next time you want to go ahead with any project — whether it’s designing a rocket ship or finally getting around to repairing your favorite rocking chair — and you start to feel those old familiar doubts, dreads, or doldrums rising up to block your way, just walk right through them. You can do it if you use your new wisdom to clear the way for you.

One excellent way to break through these seemingly impassable inner states is to see them as being the fakes they are. This isn’t to say you won’t feel their punishing presence when you first dare to defy their threats. But each time you’ll psychologically walk up to and past these inner disturbances, you’ll become increasingly aware that these task-resistant thoughts and feelings are just big fakes!

You must prove to yourself that these thoughts and feelings are fakes in order to know the powers that come with such a discovery, but here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn each time you take that step you’re sure you can’t.

Those negative states that try to stop you from taking the next step of any chosen journey are just psychological special effects. These obstacles of psychic flash-and-smoke are generated by the mind to keep you from disturbing its established levels of comfort. But special effects, regardless of the kind of “screen” upon which they’re projected, have no reality outside of your temporary belief in their appearance.

The truth is these inner-barriers are without real substance, and so must vanish the moment you pass through them. Which brings us to a great spiritual truth: On the other side of the resistance is the flow. This means that each time you’ll call on this exercise to walk through some pocket of inner resistance, you’ll find, on its other side, all the fresh energy and intelligence you’ll need to go through and complete your task.

All these years you’ve been taught to believe that before you can hope to succeed at something, you have to first feel as though you can. No! To succeed you need only understand how failure is created, and then consciously refuse to cooperate with what has been defeating you from within.

Each step into what you think you can’t do

 is one step  further away from that nature

which wants you to think that circles actually go somewhere.
