(Please review the chapter summary and respond to the discussion question in the Comments Box below)

Chapter 1 – Resistance

What is resistance?  “It’s that sluggish feeling of not wanting to do something that you know is good for you, it’s the inclination to do something that you unabashedly know is not good for you, and it’s everything in between.”  Laziness, procrastination, fear, doubt, instant gratification, self-loathing, indecision, escapism, pride, self-deception, friction, tension, and self-sabotage are a few examples of resistance.

Discussion question:  What is your greatest resistance and why?
