Resistance is the most poisonous force on the globe. It is the
ancestor of more unhappiness than poverty, disease, and dysfunction.
Resistance is quicker than a speeding bullet, stronger than a locomotive,
harder to give up than crack cocaine. We're not alone if we've been
defeated by Resistance; millions of good men and women succumbed
to its ravages. And here's the biggest problem: We don't even recognize
what hit us. I never did. From age 24 to 32, Resistance kicked my
butt from East Coast to West and back again 13 times, and I never
even knew it was around. I searched everywhere for the enemy and
didn't even see it even though it was right in front of my face.
your own heart. Even though you've only looked at a few paragraphs
unless I'm loco, right now a still, tiny voice is making noise,
telling you as it has 10 thousand times, the calling that is yours
and yours alone. You know it. No one has to reveal it to you.
And unless I'm loco, you're no nearer to taking action on it than
you were yesterday or will be tomorrow. You think Resistance isn't
real? Resistance will put you ten feet under!
Hitler wanted to be an artist. At 18 he grabbed his inheritance,
700 kronen, and moved to Vienna to live and study. He submitted
an application to the Academy of Fine Arts and later to the School
of Architecture. Ever see one of his paintings? Neither have I.
Resistance crushed him. Call it magnification, but I'll say it
anyway: It was easier for Hitler to start World War II than it
was for him to stand in front of a blank square of canvas.
