Why do people resist good leadership?

Leaders that demand a high challenge often offend those who set their personal bar pretty low for a variety of excuses. When those excuses are not accepted by the culture that the leader sets, they are then replaced by complaints. We have all seen this happen. I believe that people complain about challenging leaders because they are seeking normalcy with other teammates. Is it normal to feel negatively about the direction of the team when it demands more from me? The answer is yes, but the response to that answer is what defines our quality as a teammate. Do I complain and blame the leader for my discomfort? Or do I step up to the challenge and choose to belong?
