To move forward in life and become who we are meant to be, we have to pursue our callings with gusto. While that can often seem like an insurmountable task, author Steven Pressfield says just sitting down and getting started on your dream, no matter how small the task, will work wonders. Hear best-selling author Steven Pressfield's simple—and direct—piece of advice.
I believe you can substitute whatever dream/goal you are working on for writing and the same is true. The struggle of the writer is no different then the struggle for someone starting their own brand or business. It all boils down to RESISTANCE. Its not the writing part that's hard. What's hard is sitting down to write. What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance. Steven Pressfield "The War of Art" This quote courtesy of @Pinstamatic (http://pinstamatic.com)
"The office is closed. How many pages have I produced? I don't care. Are they any good? I don't even think about it. All that matters is that I've put in my time and hit it with all I've got. All that counts is that, for this day, for this session, I have overcome Resistance." ~Steven Pressfield The War of Art This quote courtesy of @Pinstamatic (http://pinstamatic.com)
This one hit a chord like a big ole bass guitar for me! Thank you @Stephanie Close St.Claire for sharing this awesome book recommendation in your blog!!! "Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance." Steven Pressfield "The War of Art"This quote courtesy of @Pinstamatic (http://pinstamatic.com)
Fear tells us what to do... Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That's why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there'd be no Resistance. Steven Pressfield "The War of Art"This quote courtesy of @Pinstamatic (http://pinstamatic.com)
