“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!”
