Do the Work – Wes Hopper

“The Universe is not indifferent. It is actively hostile.” – Stephen Pressfield
You may know Stephen Pressfield as the author of “Bagger Vance,” made
into a great movie with Will Smith.
He’s also written two astonishing books, “The War of Art” and “Do The Work!” on why we don’t get things done and what to do about it.
He says our most fearsome enemy is Resistance!
Resistance is all the reasons we don’t get it done. All the excuses, all the distractions, all the fear.
He says, “Resistance is an active, intelligent, malign force whose sole object is to stop us from achieving our
higher goals.”
It’s a way of personifying all those inner voices that create doubt, distraction and self-criticism when we step out into the work that we are here to do.
I don’t know about you, but I can relate to that. It’s a struggle to get the important
work done.
Now I know who I’m fighting – resistance!
Does any of this sound familiar to you? If so, get his books. Study them, and then
like St George and the dragon, set out to slay that monster!
You can do it.
