“Put your ass where your heart wants to be.” @steven_pressfield

If you have unfulfilled creative dreams, Steven Pressfield has nine words for you…

“Put your ass where your heart wants to be.”

In today’s MarieTV, you’ll learn exactly what that means. And how, with this ONE practice, you can blast through the resistance, self-doubt, or procrastination that’s stopping you. So you can finally write the book. Make the art. Dance the dance. And finish the creative work that’s calling you.

Plus, you’ll learn Steven’s secrets from 45 years as a full-time creative. He shares:

  • The KEY to a creative process that works.
  • Why “3rd Party Validation” is killing your creativity (& how to stop it).
  • How to be a full-time artist in just 1 hour a day.
  • The fastest way to get your inner critic to shut it!
  • Why resistance is a GOOD sign, and how to overcome it.
  • The ‘C’ word that works like magic to attract the opportunities, people, & support you need.

I consider Steven a mentor and have followed his advice for years. And I can tell you firsthand, this man walks his talk.

Steven’s advice on creativity works — and it comes from experience.

He’s written multiple bestsellers, including The Legend of Bagger Vance, Gates of Fire, and The Knowledge. Plus the cult classics on creativity, The War of Art, Turning Pro, and Do the Work. His newest book, Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants to Be, will help you show up and fulfill your creative calling.

Now Steven and I would love to hear from you.

What is your biggest insight, aha, or takeaway from this conversation? And more importantly…

What’s one specific action you can take to “put your ass where your heart wants to be?”

Maybe you need to schedule a one-hour creative block in your morning. And set up a sacred creative space where you’ll have no distractions. Maybe you need to physically move to a new city, sign up for a class, or join a new club.

Don’t skip this part! All the insight in the world means nothing until you ACT on it.

In the comments below, let me know what ACTION you’re committing to. This can be as simple as choosing a consistent time and place you’ll show up and do your creative work. As Steven says, “The muse does not count hours, she counts commitment.”

You have creative inklings for a reason. And you wouldn’t have the dream if you didn’t already have the goods to make it happen.

Always in your corner,
