You’re Letting Resistance Win Every Second That You Continue Living Two Lives

“Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.
 
Late at night have you experienced a vision of the person you might become, the work you could accomplish, the realized being you were meant to be? Are you a writer who doesn’t write, a painter who doesn’t paint, an entrepreneur who never starts a venture? Then you know what Resistance is.
Resistance is the most toxic force on the planet.
To yield to Resistance deforms our spirit. It stunts us and makes us less than we are and were born to be. If you believe in God (and I do) you must declare Resistance evil, for it prevents us from achieving the life God intended when He endowed each of us with our own unique genius.
A writer writes with his genius; an artist paints with hers; everyone who creates operates from this sacramental center.”
-The War of Art, Steven Pressfield
Most of you reading this have a life full of resistance. Most people do. I do.
But this is where it stops.
Quit making excuses. You’re letting Resistance win every second that you continue living two lives. Every single one of us has our own unique genius. End the fake life and to embrace your personal genius.
It is our responsibility to do the thing we love – to do what makes us happy.
Quit. Faking. It.
