The Friday DV Freebie #6

Do The Work by Steven Pressfield

What I like best: Let's just start by saying the book comes highly recommended by Marie Forleo, the forward is done by Seth Godin, and it has one of the coolest covers ever - Vincent Van Gogh, Man with Hoe. So before I even opened the book I KNEW it was going to be a worthwhile read!

It is a fun yet challenging read for a shorter book (90 pages.) It deals heavily with the intriguing topic of resistance. "On the field of self stand a knight and a dragon. You are a knight. Resistance is the dragon," declares Pressfield. As he labels resistance enemy #1!  He also implies a basic rule of thumb, "the more important a call of action is to our soul's evolution, the more resistance we will feel." Telling us to consider the champions on our side - stupidity, stubbornness, blind faith, passion, and assistance when combating resistance! If you like challenging your mind, digging deeper with simple concepts, and indulging in light humor then this book is for you.

Best Quote: "The problem with friends and family is that they know us as we are. They are invested in maintaining us as we are. The last thing we want is to remain as we are."
