Resistance is everywhere. It’s all those people yelling at you that it can’t be done. It’s you thinking, “I could never.”
It’s those around you throwing out the caution flag saying, “Are you sure, do you really think you can do that?”
It’s those friends, relatives and co-workers saying, “Hey, don’t leave us here, we like you being a part of our woes, please don’t run off and leave us.”
You have faith in yourself. You know you can do it. But, resistance keeps yelling at you from the far left hand lower corner of your brain, “Have you lost your damn mind? You can’t take such a chance.”
Momentarily you overcome the yelling, but then the yelling starts again, even louder, “You’re too old, you’re too young, you don’t have the experience, you don’t have the education, you haven’t been there and done that yet.”
Resistance is fear. It’s you being scared. It’s you being afraid to take a chance.
Resistance is as natural as the sun coming up each day.
Resistance is you being afraid to swing from your heels and go for the fences.
If you’re going to ever have your break out moment.
If you’re going to make it happen.
If you’re going to climb the mountain.
If you’re going to control your destiny.
If you’re gonna kick ass and take names.
All these ifs…
At some point you need to tell resistance where to go and get on with it. You’re smarter than resistance. I believe in you. A lot of people believe in you. You believe in you. Let’s go.
That’s all I’m gonna say, Tommy Gibbs
