Imagine ‘Turning Pro’ on your potential and possibilities.
Just think what a game changer that would be.
Of course, it would not be an overnight and sudden shift but one to continually work towards.
Here is how Pressfield describes ‘Turning pro’.
“When we turn pro, everything becomes very simple. Our aim centers on the ordering of our days in such a way that we overcome the fears that have paralyzed us in the past.
We now structure our hours not to flee from fear, but to confront it and overcome it. We plan our activities in order to accomplish an aim. And we bring our will to bear so that we stick to this resolution. This changes our days completely. It changes what time we get up and it changes what time we go to bed. It changes what we do and what we don’t do. It changes the activities we engage in and with what attitude we engage in them. It changes what we read and what we eat. It changes the shape of our bodies. When we are amateurs, our life was about drama, about denial, about distraction. Our days were simultaneously full to the bursting point and achingly, heartbreakingly empty…But we are not amateurs any more. We are different, and everyone in our lives sees it.”
Let's recap this last part...
· BEFORE OTHERS CAN SEE IT YOU MUST SEET IT
· BEFORE OTHERS CAN SEE IT YOU MUST DO IT
· BEFORE YOU CAN DO IT YOU MUST FIRST PRACTICE IT
· IF YOU ARE NOT PRACTICING REGULARLY YOU ARE REMAINING AMATEUR
