The Resistance- “Resistance by definition is self-sabotage.” Steven Pressfield
“The resistance is the little voice in your
head that keeps your head down and encourages you to follow instructions. The resistance lives in fear, and doesn’t hesitate to shut us down at the rst sign of possible derision or the rst hint of conceivable ostracization. The resistance is the voice that was complicit in the brainwashing, because the resistance is easy to arouse. When your teacher threatens you with (insert social punishment here) if you don’t do your work in school, you do the work. The resistance wins.” Seth Godin
