“When we make a beginning, we get out of our own way and allow the angels to come in and do their job.” – Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
There are discoveries we make and treasures we gain from being actively involved in the creative process that we simply can’t get by sorting things out inside of our heads.
There’s a magic that is unique to action.
When we set things in motion, we disrupt the patterns of inertia in our lives and we create ripple effects which give rise to new options and opportunities.
The power of the undivided self
We create our own reality, but “we” refers to our multidimensional selves.
We are not brains in a vat and a purely mental life will never satisfy us. We are psychosomatic entities who were created to experience life with our hearts, minds, and our bodies.
It is when we engage the world with our complete and undivided self that we realize our full creative potential.
In the absence of resistance, action is natural
Physical action is not opposed to faith in the creative power of thought.
Physical action is what we naturally do when we release limiting, disempowering, and resistant beliefs about what’s going to happen to us when we dare to grab life by the jugular.
When we know that our activity is supported by the Universe, we no longer suppress our natural tendency to take action on our dreams.
Play like a pro
The amateur attempts to figure out all the answers before he acts. The professional begins with the knowledge that answers are invented and improvised along the way by those who create their own path.
The amateur looks for guarantees before he acts. The professional moves forward with confidence that the Universe will expand in order to accommodate the faith he expresses in his vision.
We are professionals in this game of life. There’s no need for us to play with timidity.
Take a shot at your dreams. It’s time to step out there and be the champion that you know you are.
I’m rooting for you.
