You’ve got a resistance problem and you don’t even know it

There’s something you really want to do. You have some dream, some goal, some thing that you really, really, really want to do but haven’t yet done. You’re resisting it. And probably without even realizing it, you are doing all kinds of random stuff to feed this resistance. This book will awaken you to your resistance and give you courage to overcome it, so that you can bring your dreams to fruition.

Two choice quotes from the book to get you fired up:

“Have you heard this story: Woman learns she has cancer, six months to live. Within days she quits her job, resumes the dream of writing Tex-Mex songs she gave up to raise a family (or starts studying classical Greek, or moves to the inner city and devotes herself to tending babies with AIDS). Woman’s friends think she’s crazy; she herself has never been happier. There’s a postscript. Woman’s cancer goes into remission. … Is that what it takes? Do we have to stare death in the face to make us stand up and confront Resistance?”

“Look into your own heart. Unless I’m crazy, right now a still small voice is piping up, telling you as it has ten thousand times, the calling that is yours and yours alone. You know it. No one has to tell you. And unless I’m crazy, you’re no closer to taking action on it than you were yesterday or will be tomorrow. You think Resistance isn’t real? Resistance will bury you.”

  1. Is it just me or do the words “will bury you” seem especially scary?

  2. Get out of my head! Well shit, obviously the fact that I read this post this morning is a sign not only of my imminent success, but my ultimate demise by one of my fantasy diseases if I continue to do nothing. I hate cosmic bribery, but who am I to deny the power of my ultimate greatness? Alright, I will do something.

    • Yes, it was destiny that you read this! Heh heh. But seriously. It was destiny. So now you have to do/make/start/create. There is only one you, you have to share your song or there will never be a song just like it… you know how it goes. Just do it.

  3. i was poking around and saw this post and looked at the date and i actually thought to myself, “August? 2015?” did this girl die of cancer or something. i quickly shut my own mouth by word 5. good advice is timeless. i’m pretty vain but i’m not vain enough to claim that god stalled her in august and kept her silent for xmonths just so i would get a message. god loves people that much, might even love me that much, but what a dick he’d be to give someone writer’s block for comin’ up on a year now. or maybe she had a baby. i don’t know. all i know is that i am vain enough to ask her to jot some stuff down while in chemo or put the baby to nap because voices like this need to be heard more often. especially now. especially by me. and probably you too. thanx, sugar. you’re a sweet we don’t need any cutting back from.
    waiting for my next fix o’ 60,

    • I love this and appreciate your taking a moment to say it! I’ll tell myself it’s a good thing, in this case, that I haven’t posted lately, so that you were able to see this right away when you came to my site. xo
