A simple and powerful way to understand what prevents us from being the vessel that destiny / God / light / whatever you believe made us wants you to be.
I truly felt inspired reading Steven's description of how important our calling to create is. For any writer or artist out there, he writes about our craft in the highest way possible...it's a spiritual endeavor to him. The book has been so easy to pick up and read a few pages here and there, because of how he's organized it into bite-size chapters...and after I'd just gotten 1/3rd of the way into the book, I was on fire with my writing!
So if you need a kick in the butt, or just want some inspiration to keep your momentum going...this is an incredible offering to the artist in you. Get it. Read it. It's like having an expensive life coach there encouraging me onward, but for the price of a little ol' book. Thanks Steven for this inspirational piece of work!
Surrounded by creatives and brilliance who seem to always have an obstacle or excuse (resistance as explained in this book) to not finish an album, art, a book, excel formulas, house renovations, life and sometimes sentences - this has been the one book I've purchased for so many friends or in most cases pass my copy on and buy again.
It's a short, inspiring read but not for everyone. It's been and continues to be a book that inspires me to finish. And it doesn't hurt to hear an amazing personal story directly from the writer of "The Legend of Baggar Vance".
Found personal relevance from Pressfield's stories, insight and conclusions. And, likewise, believe the universe provides "backfill" when our purpose is loving and pure gift from within.
Timing for my finding and reading this authors perspective could not have been better. Thanks Steve.
