We must teach this in all of our schools:) every child before they reach the age of 10 should have this book presented to them to understand the battle that is within:)
Try not to get bogged down in the actual details of what he's saying and instead get the overarching point. If you don't throw out the baby with the bathwater you'll find this book inspiring
This book is so very accurate and just honest. Everything currently happening, and not happening in my life, this book has opened my eyes brightly to my truth, and energized me, for my fight against resistance. Also, the narrator, was awesome!
I like to see this work as motivating writers for increased production. The author makes it clear that it also applies to other areas of human endeavor. Best motivational book I have ever heard.
It could be but I liked how the sarcasm and enthusiasm came from the audible version.
Turning pro is all about transition from and amateur or part timer to a full time pro. That mental shift I found very rewarding. What are your actions representing? Are you working like a pro or amateur? Are you making art? Hiding from your critics or embracing them. It's all about doing the work and overcoming the resistance.
