Fighting Resistance and Laziness

Do you ever wonder if you’re doing enough with your life?

If you want more does that mean you’re not grateful for what you have?

And would it be okay for someone to come in your house and do whatever they wanted with your partner, your kids, or your possessions?

Today’s coaching conversation is with a man who wants more vitality and opportunity. We expose the mindset that allows him to be pushed around by resistance and laziness, and I challenge him to fight for his life force the same way he would fight for his family.

In this interview:

  • Making excuses
  • Dealing with resistance and laziness
  • Analysis paralysis
  • How do you know you’ve done enough?
  • Fighting for your life against comfort


  • Tapping into your inner fighter
  • Refusing to give away your life force
  • Getting in touch with your ‘why’
  • Reclaiming your power
  • The benefits of a men’s group

Note: What you’re about to hear is an actual coaching call. The person being coached volunteered and gave explicit permission to have our conversation recorded for this podcast.
