Steven Pressfield says “Put your ass where your heart wants to be”

Who is Steven Pressfied? He is the best selling author of The War of Art, Turning Pro, Gates of Fire, and many others. The movie The Legend of Bagger Vance was also based on the novel written by him. He has gained a lot of popularity the past few years for his writing abou the creative process, overcoming resistance, and pursuing your passion. So much so that he made it onto Oprah’s channel… His words are so simple, but so true. As I sit here and write this blog post I’m telling myself “just sit down and start writing”. And this applies to whatever you are pursuing in life… An artist? Get in front of a canvas. An actor? Go out and do some auditions. A basketball player? Get on the court. Movement creates momentum and if you just get started on something the ideas and creativity will begin to flow. You will be “in the zone” and immersed into the activity. Being in that state of “flow” is when you lose track of time and the lines are blurred between work and play. This is similar to how Pressfield mentioned how children playing have no sense of time and are just in the present moment. When you put yourself in the right enviroment, when you “put your ass where your heart wants to be”, you will tap into something great inside of you. It’s as if you already had those talent and abilities, but it was up to you to challenge yourself and bring them out. And that’s where life is… It’s that uneasy feeling of challenging yourself to do something great, not knowing what the outcome will be. Just acting on faith and on the possiblity that through your craft and passion, you could contribute something great to the world. I’ve embarked on a journey to pursue my passion and make a living while doing it. I love blogging and writing, and I have faith that I can create an abundant lifestyle while doing it.
