One of my favorite writers is Steven Pressfield. You may know him as the author of the book/movie “The Legend of Bagger Vance”. I met him through his book “The War of Art” and his following books “Do the Work” and The Warrior Ethos”. I highly recommend these powerful little books during times when we are struggling to figure out who we are and where we are going.
Think about a project you were working on and you ran out of time then ‘dialed it in.’ Think of a creative idea you had but you were afraid to risk failure. What frightens you the most is the very thing that your real self is calling you to.
In 2014, I wrote a newsletter about the field of training. You’ll see some of that in this newsletter. Many of the fears and limitations we were hiding from in 2014 continue today. I’m hoping that you will think carefully about how we can all get braver. We must face ourselves to improve our ability to strengthen the hands of the strong. Enjoy.
