Author, Steven Pressfield, — Legend of Bagger Vance, The War of Art, and Gates of Fire — talks about the chattering critic inside our heads that keeps us from moving forward with what we were born to do. He even gives a name to this voice, he calls it resistance. He says resistance stops us from committing to the most important work in our lives.
He also suggests a strategy to fight this perverse enemy. He calls it “turning pro.”
For the next few meditations I’d like you to consider what would it take for you to “turn pro.” To in fact do what God always intended for you to do.
Now “turning pro” is not for everyone, and although it is free it is not without cost. The most difficult is to give up your current self.
Now some of you may have already turned pro, or you may consider it and decide it’s not for you. You have to be a little crazy to do it, or to even to want to do it.
But I promise you it doesn’t cost a thing to consider going pro, and even if you choose to continue to live the life of the amateur you might still be able to tweek a few things that help your current condition.
Not interested, I don’t blame you. Instead read a good book, such as A Game Of Inches, and I’ll be back to normal in a few meditations.
