Are you encountering too many hardships and difficulties in your life? If yes, then it’s a sign that you need to look at your life objectively and make some positive changes. Maybe you need to untie some knots, maybe you need to lighten your personal or professional load, or maybe you need to make your life simpler and let go of certain things, people, and activities that are causing you unnecessary stress and anxiety.
Whenever you encounter too much friction in your life and things just don’t seem to flow properly, the best way to move forward is to use that friction as a compass that guides you to make meaningful adjustments to your current way of living and adopt strategies that make your life more streamlined, easy and effortless. Of course, you don’t want to be too comfortable, but you definitely need the right amount of friction to avoid burnout and getting stuck in the downward negative spiral.
Success is never a linear path, and it’s crucial that you learn the fundamentals of extraordinary achievement and apply them constantly in your work, your home, and your community. You must continually refine and optimize your strategies so that you’re able to accomplish your most important goals with the least amount of friction and resistance. At the end of the day, as I’ve said before, it’s all about cultivating a growth mindset and working to get a little bit better each and every day.
As life and peak performance coach Corey Wayne says, “Too much resistance and friction are a sign that there are better ways to execute our plans and optimize how we go about accomplishing our grandest goals and dreams. Instead of letting difficulty and resistance frustrate and demoralize us, simply use them as tools to take corrective action, so we achieve our outcomes in the shortest time and most efficient way possible. Hence the saying, work smarter, not harder.”
