All great works hinge on one single thing: Your ability, or inability, to defeat the Liar.
Because whenever you are doing something worth doing, the Liar’s going to attack. Every. Single. Time. And the Liar is playing for keeps.
As Stephen Pressfield writes in The War of Art, "Its target is the epicenter of our being: our genius, our soul, the unique and priceless gift we were put on earth to give and that no one else has but us."
Who’s the Liar?
The self-helpers might call it negative Self-Talk.
The spiritual might call it Satan.
Creatives might call it Resistance...
