The amount of 'resistance' you encounter is proportional to the level of change you intend to bring to the world... Steven Pressfield as quoted in this Ted Talk
If you are part of the 'rainmaker' tribe -- one of those who must change the world for the better somehow then you need -- no you MUST-- hear this talk. It will help you make sense of the resistance that all rainmakers and change-bringers encounter. It's universal and it helps to know how one of our tribe overcame it.
Go make it rain!
