Where there is great vision and purpose, there will be some friction or resistance. How many times have you tried to do something, put your all into it, crafted amazing plans and the like, only to have everything seem to fall apart? You were passionate, vested (time, energy and finances) and no matter how hard you tried, nothing seemed to work! Why even bother? Where there is great vision, purpose or destiny that awaits you, there is going to be some friction/resistance!
I always laugh and tell our Let’s Face It Radio show creator, Wil Strayhorn, we need a TV radio show! As amazing as the episodes are, and our chemistry can be heard on the airways, imagine what it would look like on TV. We keep finding that our best, most impactful shows occur when we initially don’t agree with the vision of the other. One of us will think we should go this way, the other doesn’t agree and then the two of us go back and forth with our pitches. Hmmmm, friction anyone?
However, this is proof positive that friction/resistance can be a good thing when utilized properly. We are both visionaries who understand the mission and the role each of us play in it. Our minor disagreements at times are because we are so connected to the mission and our view of how to accomplish it, that we are determined to defend our winning position. At the end of the day, we come to a resolution for the betterment of the show and, viola, the magic happens and we’re both thankful for the initial battle to make it to the finish line. Why? Why even bother? Why not just give in from the beginning and let the other one have his or her way?
Where there is great vision, purpose or destiny that awaits you, there is going to be some friction/resistance! Without friction, how else will you ignite the fire to awaken your life, dreams and purpose? Despite the heat/resistance, DON’T ABORT THE MISSION!
