The War of Art - Steven Pressfield

reading list May 31, 2022

 In the War of Art, Steven Pressfield explores the true enemy in our pursuit of our purpose or passion and how to overcome it.

My favorite quotes are shared below:

"Most of us have two lives. The life we live and the unlived life within us. What lies in between is resistance."

-

"The more important a call or action is to our souls evolution, the more resistance we will feel towards pursuing it."

-

"The paradox seems to be that the truly free individual is only free to the extent of his own self-mastery. While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters who will govern over them."

-

"Nothing is as empowering as real-world validation - even if it's for failure."

-

"The professional acts in the face of fear, the amateur believes he must first overcome his fear, then he can do his work."

-

"We're not born with unlimited choices. We can't be anything we want to be. We come into this world with a specific personal destiny. We have a job to do, a calling to enact, a self to become. We are who we are from the cradle and we're stuck with it. Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some idea we image we ought to be, but to find out who we are already and become it."
