I recently read a post over at ZenHabits, that resonated with me. It was a guest post by Seth Godin which talked about a term coined by Steven Pressman, called “the resistance”.
The resistance is that little voice in the back of your head, the one that tells you that it will never work, the one that insists you check your email one last time, the one that worries that people will laugh at you.
What I’ve found very interesting about this article is that I’ve heard this voice. I don’t listen to it much, but it becomes louder when I talk to some people about starting a business or louder still when a business venture does not end up like I had hoped.
