Resistance is futile, meaning that: My obstacles do not stand a chance.
It is about a refusal to accept defeat.
Andy Andrews lists this mentality as one of The Seven Decisions.
So let’s get up and keep going. Shall we?
I hope you are with me.
Now hand me my chisel.
If we’re to overcome our obstacles, this is the message to broadcast—internally and externally. We will not be stopped by failure, we will not be rushed or distracted by external noise. We will chisel and peg away at the obstacle until it is gone. Resistance is futile.
-Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle Is The Way

Funny how you sometimes hear about something again 20 years later…
