Navigating By Resistance

steven pressfieldWe can navigate by Resistance, letting it guide us to that calling or action that we must follow before all others. – Steven Pressfield

According to Pressfield, we can use Resistance to guide us towards the things that we are meant to be doing. We know we are on the right path when we feel the Resistance getting stronger.

Many times, we will find that the homework we are putting off is exactly what we need to learn to take the next step. The trade that frightens us the most ends up being the one that saves our year.

Using Resistance to our advantage in this way can be a huge help during difficult times when we lack direction. Simply doing whatever task you feel the most Resistance to is a great way to push forward, even if you aren’t sure which direction you are going. 

Whether or not you have any trading success under your belt. Whether or not you have a well thought out trading strategy that you are comfortable with. Whether or not you have a plan for how to approach whatever happens in the market today.

No matter where you are in your trading evolutions, you certainly have felt Resistance. Allow that Resistance to be your guide through the market. Follow it.
