The ability to overcome resistance, self-sabotage and self-doubt is way more important than talent. -Steven Pressfield
“Resistance is like the villain in a movie,” explains Steven Pressfield in a recent interview with Marie Forleo, Overcoming Resistance & Why Talent Doesn’t Matter. “If there were no villain, there’d be no movie. So resistance gives meaning to everything.” Steven Pressfield is a best-selling author of Gates of Fire, Tides of War and other works on historical fiction, as well as on creativity. He’s also a former Marine.
Pressfield worked for seventeen years as a writer before he earned his first penny from writing, twenty-seven years before his first novel was published, and was in his fifties when he started making a living from his writing.
This week, I encourage you to consider, are you strengthening your ability to overcome resistance?
Enjoy a happy and productive week!
