Barriers to personal growth and development: Barbara Sher on resistance

Posted Sep 02 2009 10:10pm

Video: “What stops you from doing what you love? It’s a survival mechanism called Resistance, and it goes into alert mode any time you do something that raises anxiety.”

Barbara Sher points out, “Everyone has unique gifts and talents. What you love is what you’re gifted at. To be completely happy, to live a completely fulfilled life, you have to do what you love.”

But one of the inner obstacles to a fulfilled life we may face is anxiety, which can show up when we are growing, creating, moving out of our comfort zone.

Or if we are what Sher calls a ’scanner’ with multiple talents and interests, we can be the target of social criticism for not choosing a well-defined career path, or feel very anxious trying to fit in with most conventional jobs.
