Great Resistance

resistance in life resistance in life No person, ideal or institution becomes great until Great Resistance has been encountered.
Greatness cannot be achieved until this concept is understood.
Unfortunately, the average person is ignorant of this rule to achievement. Mr. and Ms.
Average, in their ignorance are fearful and reluctant to encounter even slight resistance in liferesistance. They
don’t want to make waves or be criticized and they incorrectly feel that criticism will hold them
back and prevent their happiness from being realized. In truth, the opposite is the case.
Take note: when we begin to change our jobs, we are first given resistance by our loved ones,
for they fear change because change means facing the unknown! When we begin to make
rapid achievement or commitment to rapid progress, we have roadblocks thrown up by our
friends and relations. They begin to resist by negative comments and actions, which are
devices to cause you to maintain the ‘status quo’.
Now, if you are to achieve great progress, you must prevail against those closest to you; this is
difficult and requires courage because you desire to please and not hurt those you love. The
truth is that great harm befalls your loved ones when you fail to be yourself and do your thing.
This is so, because you lose your enthusiasm for life, your growth process stops and your self esteem
diminishes. Those negatives are reversed when you stand your ground; and when you
have prevailed, your loved ones gain a new and higher respect for you.
History records countless events, which prove the point. Let the great lessons of the past stay
in our mind as a beacon in our personal and corporate future. Let us understand and be
grateful that our ideas have proved worthy of tremendous resistance. Today, all over the
world, great forces have risen to resist our growth. These forces fear us for what we present
and they are attempting to destroy us and our dreams. Our understanding of this phenomenon
and our strength of character and our commitment to our way of life is prevailing over these
forces which have risen up. We are fortunate to have such great resistance. This resistance is
evidence of our greatness and it provides us with the energy to prevail. These next few short
years will record a brilliant history and establish a permanent place for our way of life – which is
Freedom to be and to work out our dreams for a great world, for ourselves, for children and all
humankind.
