The Daily Groove: Resistance Is Futile

Another great Daily Groove from Scott Noelle today:

THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle

:: Resistance Is Futile ::

You can't resist something without focusing your
attention on it. And whatever you focus on becomes
a *bigger* part of your experience.

So the way to end the unwanted behavior of a child
(without resorting to violence) is to *stop trying to
end it!*

Instead, look for ways to think differently about the
behavior, until you feel your resistance softening.

You might think, "I can understand how he feels," or
"She's finding her way," or "It's not the end of the
world," or even, "It's *okay* for me to resist this...
but I feel better when I let it go."

The less you resist, the more creative you can be, and
the more you can *inspire* a change rather than having
to force one.
