Resistance Part 2 – #minibooks

Steven Pressfield describes Resistance as like “the pain-in-the-ass schoolteacher who won’t let us climb the tree in the playground. But the urge to climb came first.” Resistance shows up to stop us from doing our greatest work and discovering fully who we are meant to be.
