The War of Art by Steven Pressfield Book Notes

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield is one of my absolute favorite books that has greatly impacted myself, here are some of my notes, but you have to get this book.
You think Resistance isn’t real? Resistance will bury you.
The more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.

Resistance obstructs movement only from a lower sphere to a higher.

Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it’s the easiest to rationalize. The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that it can become a habit. We don’t just put off our lives today; we put them off till our deathbed.

Self-doubt can be an ally. This is because it serves as an indicator of aspiration. It reflects love, love of something we dream of doing, and desire, desire to do it. If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends), “Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist?” chances are you are.

Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.

If you’re feeling massive Resistance, the good news is, it means there’s tremendous love there too. If you didn’t love the project that is terrifying you, you wouldn’t feel anything. The opposite of love isn’t hate; it’s indifference.

Rationalization is Resistance’s right-hand man. Its job is to keep us from feeling the shame we would feel if we truly faced what cowards we are for not doing our work.

Resistance gets us to plunge into a project with an overambitious and unrealistic timetable for its completion.

The professional cant  take rejection personally because to do so reinforces Resistance.

“The professional keeps his eye on the doughnut and not on the hole. He reminds himself it’s better to be in the arena, getting stomped by the bull, than to be up in the stands or out in the parking lot.”

Just as Resistance has its seat in hell, so Creation has its home in heaven.

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it. Begin it now.”

Fear of the consequences of following our heart.
