Beating Resistance

Resistance Can Be Beaten

If Resistance couldn’t be beaten, there would be no Fifth Symphony, no Romeo and Juliet, no Golden Gate Bridge. Defeating Resistance is like giving birth. It seems absolutely impossible until you remember that women have been pulling it off successfully, with support and without, for fifty million years.

As my “friend and mentor” Steven Pressfield writes in his great work The War of Art, Mr. Resistance can be beat. I can tell you he’s right because I’ve been successful at it, here and there.

If beating down Resistance would happen each and every day, it would be a grand thing for me.

As a fine artist, I paint, knit, and make jewelry, to figure it all out.

    1. Thanks for dropping in to read and comment, Jay. Yeah, I see Resistance as a “Mr” and we play cat and mouse most days in and out of the art studio. “He” is so annoying..
