True quote of the day…

“The more you love your art/calling enterprise, the more important its accomplishment is to the evolution of your soul, the more you will fear it and the more Resistance you will experience facing it.” – p. 73, The War of Art, Steven Pressfield

Ah, and it sounds hopeless, but Pressfield’s point is that too much love creates too much pressure/anxiety/fear of failure. Instead, be a professional. Do your work. Absorb the criticism, learn from it, don’t take it as a blow to your very being. Do the work that you need to do. That you were created to do.

I’m not very good at this. But I’m trying.
