If you haven’t read Steven Pressfield’s book – The War of Art – you need to. Buy it and read it immediately. It speaks about the Resistance – our inner battle preventing us from doing the work we are called to do. It wants us to quiet down, fall in line, and not attract attention. It wants to distract us. It wants to make us feel safe with our own mediocrity.
The Resistance can be subtle. It doesn’t just show up to make us fail at something. Failing means trying. It shows up BEFORE we even try and prevents us from doing so.
All this is to say the Resistance is pretty loud right now.
