As soon as we set a vision, we meet obstacles. The law of opposites gives us a powerful lens for the permanent reinvention mindset. When we understand there is a positive with every negative, when we inevitably encounter a negative, we know it is temporary and a positive experience is on the way.
When you initiate change often people close to you will discourage you, they may see it as a reflection of themselves and won’t want to let you go or grow.
In other instances, they do not want to see you get hurt. It is difficult, but try not to hold it against them, they are playing the naysayer role that is common in any transformation process (with the caveat that if they are discouraging you on an ongoing basis, then you need to re-evaluate that relationship).
