The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield, is a powerful and straight to the point examination of the internal obstacles that prevent us from creating our best work. In it, Pressfield writes, that the areas and activities which seem to elicit the most resistance in people tend to be the areas that are most deeply connected to our true calling and that offer the most potential for personal growth.
Some examples of these areas are:
health, exercise, education, entrepreneurial ventures and charity/non-profit work.
In these areas, for so many people, the battle is on to find the time, motivation and [insert excuse here] to initiate and sustain the work that we know we should be doing. Its here, in the areas of most vital importance, that we face internal resistance preventing us from reaching our true potential.
