Many of us have grown up feeling some form of resentment against a wrong or perhaps a failure. Often we react to someone we feel deeply for or something that we’d love by pushing it away. This is a deeply entrenched episode that we have forgotten but the behaviours we have formed have become destructive habits. In fact, our actions have become so refined that resentment has become the art of pushing away we intend to have.
The Art Of Pushing Away Success
The art of pushing away success often comes in extremely subtle and sometimes so elegantly executed ways. It can come in the form of a sly smile of refusal and then going away quickly. Sometimes, a very polite string of words about why these things are not for me but secretly feeling the pangs of sheer resentment because you want to begin ahead of that person. Others are not so sanguine. They bellow their displeasures and depart, letting everyone else wonder about the state of human civility.
Observing myself and the modus operandi of many other people with whom I have the pleasure of being friends with, there is that art of pushing away people, things and events from our experiences. Many of these are based on resentment behaviours that have become habitual but have also been ingrained in our daily routines. And many of us wonder why success never come despite all those months spent wishing for them.
Wishing is simply wishing and not burning desires. Wishing is simply thought without any action to make those wishes come true. And much of the root causes happen when you balk at fully embracing your desires. In fact you do something that will literally put them out of your sight like sweeping them under a rug or put them off till tomorrow which never comes. Burning desires are wishes that have been put into powerful meaningful action, intended to create the outcome desired. One does not make excuses nor let anything stop you. You do what successful people do and do everything, no matter how crazy or difficult they are.
The Feeling Of Resentment
Feeling resentful of the things around you may appear like you are living the life of jealousy. It might be so because you think you can’t have it as good as that other guy or you believe other people have a better life just because of their lifestyle. Perhaps it seems they have parents who started them off better than you had it. All the while, you wondered why nothing you ever tried by going out of your comfort zone failed badly or simply fell off any future consideration.
Well, you’re not the only person to go through this. I know that I had been doing this for many years myself. In fact, many wealthy people used to do so…at first, until they found out what was really eating them from the inside. Their emotions always got in the way. And it gets worse and more vicious. Until one day, your desires get so extreme that all it takes is for one particular event that escalades until you are forced to see reason. And that moment will be when you decide to change from pushing your desires away to embracing them with everything you are.
Embrace Success By Recognising Resentment
“Why do I always feel resentful of something?” If that is what you ask yourself at this time, then congratulate yourself because you have come to identify a deeply hidden issue within your mind. What you light up from the shadows become seen and easier to work with. It may seem like you are fighting with your natural emotions but you will find success by actually embracing all those activities that bring you desire to accomplish your wishes. These activities actually start to turn all that resentful feelings into acceptance.
I was once brought to my senses by a well meaning person who at first appeared to insult me. I could not see the strange behaviours I always worked with. Each time an opportunity came along I would jump headlong into it, full of gusto. But within a very short few weeks, I would start to resent everyone else who was in the same business longer than I had been because they had already gained a foothold ahead of me.
It took some soul searching but the moment I let go of the experiences I had since my childhood about not being good enough (someone bullied that into me then), things started to change for the better. In fact, everything started to build, build, build faster and farther than I had ever realised was even remotely possible.
