The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle

war_of_art

Have you ever been postponing that daily walk ?

Have you ever been postponing that piece of art that you wanted to do be it trying your hand at painting , drawing, singing or anything else that you wanted to do, but never could bring yourself to do it ?

What do you think is holding it back ?

or

Rather,

Who do you think it holding it back ?

It is you. You want proof. Grab this book.

However, make no mistakes. This is hard hitting book, delivered in a plain and simple language.

You will be surprised at its no direct approach in attacking our excuses

The author defines ‘Resistance’ as below and  highlights it  as the significant obstacle and questions you vehemently to overcome the Resistance.

“Resistance obstructs movement only from a lower sphere to a higher. It kicks in when we seek to pursue a calling in the arts, launch an innovative enterprise, or evolve to a higher station morally, ethically, or spiritually.”

What is the source of Resistance ?

It is the nagging voice of self-doubt that wants to win over us.

How do we defeat it ?

Just by starting and enjoying the process day in and day out.

“Because when we sit down day after day and keep grinding, something mysterious starts to happen. A process is set into motion by which, inevitably and infallibly, heaven comes to our aid. Unseen forces enlist in our cause; serendipity reinforces our purpose.”

This is a small, extremely well written and well cited book by most professionals who have overcome their resistance.

I can guarantee you that it will provoke and persuade you to lower down your Resistance.

And finally I want to leave you with this quote from the book

“Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can turn the tables on Resistance. This second, we can sit down and do our work.”

Enjoy Maadi (Have Fun)
