From Vices To Virtues Essential High Performance Podcast Experience

Jul 20, 2018

This is part 2 of my book review for The War Of Art by Steven Pressfield. It identifies the enemy—what is called Resistance with a capital “R,” i.e. fear, self-doubt, procrastination, perfectionism, all the forms of self-sabotage that stop us from doing our work and realizing our dreams.

The “war of art” is not about genius, it’s about work. We can’t control the level of talent we’ve been given. We have no control over the nature of our gift. What we can control is our self-motivation, our self-discipline, our self-validation, and our self-reinforcement. We can control how hard and how smart we work.

This is really a hand grenade disguised as a book, and will likely cause radical shifts to occur in the foundation of your life.

The enemy is a very good teacher.  Dalai Lama

Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.


Look in your own heart. Unless I’m crazy, right now a still small voice is piping up, telling you as it has ten thousand times, the calling that is yours and yours alone. And unless I’m crazy, you’re no closer to taking action on it than you were yesterday or will be tomorrow. You think Resistance isn’t real? Resistance will bury you.
