Go boldly into your resistance.
In the morning, resist the temptation to turn on an electronic box to push your emotional and intellectual buttons—the things that stop you and start you.
Instead, reach for peace, prayer, poetry, and purpose—even before you pee.
Resist unedited thoughts, words, assumptions, beliefs, and reactions.
Resist knowing the answer before hearing the question. Fight the urge to always be right, be on time, and be the smartest person in the room. Even Abe Lincoln and Mark Twain had to learn to temper themselves, to be civil in their discourse.
Resist swallowing news like vitamins. Occasionally, we’ve got to reevaluate the choices, benefits, and costs of what we’re taking in.
Resist the urge to share what you’re unwilling to research. Resist through research.
Resist through writing and speaking. Resist by reading. Read like it’s a habit stronger than alcohol and you’ll never want to quit.
