The Resistance

You know what the resistance is, it’s that moment you are really fired up to try something new, something that you’ve been thinking about for a long time, you’re about to begin, it’s exciting and scary at the same time, then the internal little voice of doubt takes over. The next thing you know, it’s same old same old, the doubters won, and you’ve talked yourself out of whatever it was you were going to do. You are once again, doing, living, being in the same old way, thinking about what it would be like “if only”. We have all been there. In this great video, The Resistance, by Seth Godin, he explains in more detail what is occurring in the brain at the mental and physiological level when we find ourselves in this precarious place between pushing forward and status quo.
