"The more important a call or action is to our soul's evolution, the more Resistance we feel toward pursuing it." -Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
I believe this to be true. Do you?
That "next step" is usually the one that I trip up on. Down I go into a pool of procrastination. I sit there for awhile then struggle to get up and try again. Is there a way to trip up but not go down? I know there is. I'm surrounded by people who take those next steps with what appears to be ease and confidence. They push forward and accomplish what seemed impossible. Am I just wired differently from them? Yes, probably. However, I chose to continue to seek out what works for me in order to break that cycle and move forward with more ease. After all that is isn't that what we all have to do?
After multiple bumps into The War of Art I downloaded a sample and knew it was a book that needed to be read. I desire to take next steps in my photography, intellect, relationships and inner self. Understanding what resistance is and how to overcome it is where I'm at; it is my next step.
