In Steven Pressfield’s “Do the Work” we’re reminded that along the path to any goal our greatest hurdles are fear and procrastination, and not just fear of failure, fear of success as well.
When asked to choose between “Heaven” and “Books about Heaven” we choose the books. Why? We are really in awe of what we’re capable of, the light within us. So we settle for mediocrity, play the blame game, or seek distraction. We procrastinate. We avoid. We let what Pressfield calls the “Resistance” win.
If you’re trying to achieve a goal of any sort be prepared for this “resistance”.
Instead of giving in to fear or procrastination, accept what could be and let your light shine.
Procrastination, the way of resistance, is still the thief of time.
