Description

The act of creation is something we have a desire to do but just because we desire to create doesn’t make it any easier. In fact, creating and putting your work into the world for others to judge is one of the most challenging things a human can do. There are a lot of reasons for this but ultimately it boils down to what my guest today calls, “resistance.”

I’m honored to be joined by someone I’ve admired and respected for a very long time, Mr. Steven Pressfield, and today we talk about what “resistance” actually is and how it manifests itself differently in people’s lives. We also talk about the arrogance of planning, the culture of virtue, identifying the “soul’s code,” why work can be like war, and how to equip yourself for it.

STEVEN PRESSFIELD

My guest today is the one and only Steven Pressfield.

Needless to say, many of you are already familiar with at least some of his work, including The War of Art, Do the Work, The Warrior Ethos, and Gates of Fire.

But what a lot of you may not know is that Steven wrote for 27 years before his first novel, The Legend of Bagger Vance, was published. So, obviously, he knows a thing or two about putting in the work and overcoming resistance in all of its forms.

Since then, he’s gone on to sell millions of copies of his books and has become one of the most influential figures in fighting through challenging times, paying your dues, and teaching others how to succeed as creators.

Gents, this one is such a powerful conversation. I hope you enjoy it.

MAINE EVENT

Last week, I talked with you about the Legacy Event which is for fathers and sons but this week I wanted to share our next event, Maine Event, which will be held October 9th-11th with an exclusive Iron Council dinner the evening of the 8th.

Over a period of two days, you’ll work alongside 100 other motivated, ambitious men to create a Battle Plan that will help you roll into 2021 in full stride and ready to seize all that the new year has to offer you.

You’re going to get one-one coaching, group accountability, camaraderie, and the type of conversations and insights that most men just don’t get in their day-to-day activities.

We only have six spots remaining so if you’re even remotely interested, please head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent as quickly as possible to lock in one of the last seats to this incredible experience.

Again, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent, to learn more and claim your seat.
