I think I needed to hear you say that I should seize it as an opportunity rather than dread it, and every step forward he takes is a little victory.

    Again, let me quote my trainer, who must say things many times to get through my thick skull. "Stay with him until he makes the change" Stay with him. So, keep asking him for the thing you want, don't just wait for him to finish his tantrum and then reward him for calming down. He gets the reward when he does what you asked, even if it's a tiny bit. Perhaps you are rewarding him for calming, nstead of rewarding him for moving, that you have to do it all over again each day.
