The War of Art


“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 one 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.”


The book explores what blocks creativity and how to overcome it, whether or not you are an aspiring artist, in order to be able to live up to your potential.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1. The art of war refers to our internal war we have to overcome in order to fulfil our potential.

2. It is important to have dreams, but if you don't focus on and commit to the daily practice, it is less likely you achieve any of your dreams.

3. Focusing on your skills, work and processes will get you results if you are determined enough.


READ IF: You want to achieve something extraordinary, but the fear of failure, procrastination and doubts are holding you back.
