fear is good

“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign.

Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator.

Fear tells us what we have to do.

Remember our rule of thumb:

The more scared we are of a work or calling,

the more sure we can be that we have to do it.

Resistance is experienced as fear;

the degree of fear equates the strength of Resistance.

Therefore, the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise,

the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul.”

-Steven Pressfield – The War of Art

my first response to reading this quote was “ah shit!”

how about you?
