Welcome the resistance

Seek to create or improve, and you’ll meet resistance. The more ambitious your goal, the more powerful the resistance is going to be.

Welcome that resistance, because it represents the value of what you’ve decided to do. Welcome the resistance, because it proves you are making meaningful progress.

Welcome the resistance, but do not succumb to it. Do not let it stop you, or distract you, or turn your focus away from your intention.

Smile knowingly at whatever person, force, or situation seeks to block you. You knew it was coming, you’re ready for it, and you’ve taken full responsibility for getting around it.

Whatever you seek, the resistance you encounter is your opportunity to prove how much you want it, how much you deserve it. Be eager to seize that opportunity, and enthusiastic about the great value it enables you to create.

The resistance is strong but you are stronger because you have a worthy purpose. Welcome the resistance, and do exactly what it’s trying to prevent you from doing.

— Ralph Marston
