The War of Art: Break Through The Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles

December 5, 2019

You know that feeling when it’s December and you’re looking back on the year, realizing that once again, you have so many goals that remain incomplete. You never got started on your side hustle, you never lost those 10lbs, you never paid off your credit card debt… You don’t know what happened because in the beginning of the year, you had so much drive and motivation, but as time passed, it all faded away and you went back to your old ways.

This is called Resistance aka all of your excuses and fears getting in the way of you going after what you want. Resistance is that voice in your head telling you you’ll fail, or that you aren’t good enough or that no one will buy your product. But the truth is, resistance and fear will ALWAYS be there. And if you’re really serious about going after your dreams, you have to find a way to deal with it.

As creators, we need to create a fool-proof plan to kick resistance to the curb every time it pops up, or else we’ll never reach our fullest potential, trust me, I’ve been there. I’ve spent YEARS spinning my wheels, making excuses and getting nowhere. But this book is my saving grace for whenever I feel stuck in the vicious, “I can’t do this,” cycle.

In The War of Art, Steven Pressfield gives you real life actionable tips to get you off of the resistance rollercoaster once and for all. This is a quick read that I constantly reread. It kickstarts me into action every single time. It is the perfect read to get your energy moving as we move into 2020! Because letting your fears take over is soooo 2019.
