Disability Dojo: The Resistance Behind Behavior Change

January 31, 2022

On today’s dojo, Tony gets into what he considers to be the biggest reason why many of us don’t live the life we’re meant to live. In this episode, we’re going to be talking about The Resistance, as described by Steven Pressfield in his book, The War of Art. In the subsequent dojo episodes, we’ll then talk about how it manifests in our lives and how we can go about beating this resistance.

Why is this relevant to people with disabilities? People with disabilities face an even greater resistance in their lives and have more reasons and excuses to not live the life they’re meant to live. As we dive into the characteristics and identifying the resistance, Tony’s hope is that we’ll be able to see how it truly is a force that impacts everyone. The problem is most of us don’t even see it, acknowledge it, or realize that we’ve already or are currently being affected by it.
