Good episode? Give it some love!
External issues are easy to solve, as an entrepreneur.  Buying new software, hiring a consultant, taking a training course...  These are just a few of the examples of solutions you can apply.  Internal struggles, on the other hand, are much more of an issue.  Self-doubt, procrastination, distractions, negative thinking, and many other internal struggles can limit success more than anything.

We explore the topic of "resistance" and why it can be your friend or enemy.  The book, The War of Art by Steven Pressfield is a game changing book for the entrepreneur who has faced their own "brick wall" or major resistance.  In those moments, resistance can serve to motivate, if you recognize it for what it is, or can serve to derail.  Often the entrepreneur will abandon projects, which might otherwise have been successful, simply because the resistance served to demotivate, disguising itself as reasons why the project should never have begun.  EVERY entrepreneur faces resistance.  It's what you do with it that matters.  Winners know that you must stay focused upon a clear mission and direction, allowing nothing to derail the projects(s) required for success.  When self-doubt creeps in, you must go back to plan review and recalculation, silencing the voice of doubt and replacing it with clear action items.
