Resistance!


Some great thoughts about resistance:

“Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance. Are you a writer who doesn’t write, a painter who doesn’t paint, an entrepreneur who never starts a venture? Then you know what Resistance is.”

“Resistance arises from within. It is self-generated and self-perpetuated. Resistance is the enemy within.”

“Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it’s the easiest to rationalize.”

“Aspiring artists defeated by Resistance share one trait. They all think like amateurs. They have not yet turned pro.”
“To the amateur, the game is his avocation. To the pro it’s his vocation. The amateur does not love the game enough. If he did, he would not pursue it as a sideline, distinct from his “real” vocation. The professional loves it so much he dedicates his life to it. He commits full-time.”

“Resistance hates it when we turn pro.”

You may or may not be an artist, but we all have something that we aren’t getting done. Can you look inside yourself and ask why? Is anything holding you back? What is holding you back?
