Do you get stopped when you know you are ready to be the artist who ships? Does The Lizard Brain stop you. This is where the Resistance from Linkchpinresistance comes in……

The lizard brain is that little voice inside your head that tells you that it’s too risky or that you should just follow orders. It is also  the voice that has you aimlessly surfing the net, checking your email, etc

Artists Ship

“What you do for a living is not be creative, what you do is ship,” says bestselling author Seth Godin, arguing that we must quiet our fearful “lizard brains” to avoid sabotaging projects just before we finally finish them.

  1. Suzie, what a great video and post about how the lizard brain can stop us from being a linchpin. Congratulations on realizing that you were in resistance and then moving past it! That’s the key, I think. It’s only when we stay in resistance, or are unwilling to take a look at it, that we stay stuck. I think we all hit points of resistance from time to time and as long as we eventually see it and work through it, it’s all good.

    1. Hi Leanne,
      I agree I think we do all hit that resistance and I now see it as a way we often breakthrough to the next level too. As you say it is all good. 🙂

  2. Hi Suzie — thanks for your post and video on the workings of the brain, especially that lizard brain that we all have that can stop us if we let it (oh, no!).

    Glad to know I’m not the only one who is excited about all of this brain research and how it can be used to change behaviors. I look forward to reading your future posts!

  3. Hi Suzie, great blog post, I love Seth Godin.

    In coaching, we have a similar concept, we call it the saboteur, who tries and often does, distract you and stop you from being the best you that you can be.

    So let’s just say no to both lizard brains and the saboteur, so that we can all become more successful. Sound like a plan?

    1. Hi Kathy,
      Thanks for your suggestion- looks like we could develop a variety of names for this character-
      Yes I agree we need to say no so we grow
