Listening to your resistance.

Listening to your resistance.

  • Treat internal resistance as a form of wisdom rather than a malevolent opponent.
  • It can be helpful to remember that the force of your internal resistance is also a measure of how much you actually want to do the work, no matter how many days, you don’t quite manage to get there.
  • Sometimes the fears turn out to be imaginary, and sometimes the pain is very real.
  • Listening to your internal resistance & working in accordance with it will lead to immense growth.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
