Darth Vadar was right. Resistance is futile. I’ll agree with him but for a different reason. If you really want to get somewhere in life, forcing something to happen or forcing something on someone is always in the end going to be futile. It goes against our innate free will. Even if you do get what you want it’s through fear and intimidation which won’t stand the test of time.
Let’s look at this from the Principle of Polarity which states everything has its equal and opposite in the universe. Therefore, the opposite of resistance is compliance, approval and acceptance. You can force a change on someone or you can have them engaged in the process where they’ll go willingly. Which one do you think would be more beneficial for everyone to create a win-win situation? Of course the “buy in” is the long lasting solution. However it does take more energy to create it. That’s the price you pay but its well worth it.
When people are forced against their will it creates animosity and grudges. Personally I think it’s better to make the effort and get the person’s willingness to accept it then to deal with the negative energy that comes with resistance. In the end it creates a win-win solution that everyone is happy to be a part of.
