Steven Pressfield Quotes:
- “Resistance will tell you anything to keep you from doing your work. … If you take Resistance at its word, you deserve everything you get. Resistance is always lying and always full of shit.”
- “The more important a call or action to our soul’s evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.”
- “Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it’s the easiest to rationalize. We don’t tell ourselves, “I’m never going to write my symphony.” Instead, we say, “I am going to write my symphony; I’m just going to start tomorrow.”
- “The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death.”
- “The part that needs healing is our personal life. Personal life has nothing to do with work.”
- “Grandiose fantasies are a symptom of Resistance. They’re the sign of an amateur. The professional has learned that success, like happiness, comes as a by-product of work.”
- “The amateur plays for fun. The professional plays for keeps.”
- “Are you a born writer? Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace? In the end, the question can only be answered by action. Do it or don’t do it.”
- “The professional, though he accepts money, does his work out of love. He has to love it. Otherwise, he wouldn’t devote his life to it of his own free will. The professional has learned, however, that too much love can be a bad thing. Too much love can make him choke.”
- “The professional learns to recognize envy-driven criticism and to take it for what it is: the supreme compliment.”
