Tip 15 - Recognise the Real Purpose of Resistance.
“Before the dragon of Resistance reared its ugly head and breathed fire into our faces, there existed within us a force so potent and so life-affirming that it made Resistance freak out and load up the sulphur and brimstone.” Steven Pressfield, Author of War of Art
It claims to be your friend. Resistance whispers in your ear that it is saving you from pain, failure, looking stupid, being rejected, going broke, wasting your life on fruitless ventures. On a bad day, you do actually believe that. But in your heart, you know that resistance is actually keeping you from your juice and from the magnificence of your life. It is deceiving you into believing that you are a purely physical being rather than an amazing spirit in a body. It is keeping you from your talent and power. It is trying to keep you afraid and asleep. It’s got some pretty convincing arguments, but none of them is true.
Freedom project: Remember - whatever resistance may whisper in your ear, it is not your friend. It does not have your best interests at heart. Listen to another voice.
