Steven Pressfield on Overcoming Resistance

How many of us have become drunks and drug addicts, developed tumors and neuroses, succumbed to painkillers, gossip, and compulsive cell-phone use, simply because we don’t do that thing that our hearts, our inner genius, is calling us to? Resistance defeats us… Unless I’m crazy, right now a still small voice is piping up, telling you as it has ten thousand times, the calling that  is yours and yours alone.

The amateur believes he must first overcome his fear; then he can do his work. The professional knows that fear can never be overcome. He knows there is no such thing as a fearless warrior or a dread-free artist.
