It took him 17 years to get paid for anything he wrote…

...but the lessons he learned could help you conquer creative blockage once and for all.

Steven Pressfield shouldn’t be an author.

Not because he’s a bad writer, but because it seemed for 17 years like the Universe was telling him:

“No. This is not for you. Quit. Give up. It won’t work.”

It turns out, the Universe was telling him something different entirely. A message that took 17 years to be fulfilled.

I’m sure Mr. Pressfield would have loved to achieve success much more quickly, but during those 17 years, he was learning (and living) a lesson that could help you conquer your creative blocks forever.

Who is Steven Pressfield, and why should he matter to you?

Steven Pressfield has been many things:

A bartender, trucker, migrant worker, schoolteacher, and more.

He was even homeless at one point.

I say this to let you know he was not born with a silver spoon, and he was not an overnight success.

Yes, his first novel, The Legend of Baggar Vance, was made into a movie starring Matt Damon and Will Smith, but do you know how long Mr. Pressfield had been writing before The Legend of Baggar Vance was published?

27 years.

You might be thinking:

Why in the hell did he keep writing? This guy is an idiot.

Far from it, actually. Mr. Pressfield graduated from Duke University in 1966. His success cannot be attributed to blind luck or foolish consistency.

While he may have started without knowing what he was doing, somewhere along the way, Mr. Pressfield began to learn (and use) the lessons that would remove all the barriers to his success that he could control.

And now, you can do the same.

Overcome the invisible force blocking your creativity

You probably don’t realize this, but you are in a war.

Not against a nation or a person, but an invisible, insidious force that will do everything in its power to keep you from pursuing your dream.

It will make you fearful, lazy, inconsistent.

It will lie to you.

It will put on a mask and pretend to help and, at the same time, work behind the scenes to sabotage anything that could help you reach your goal.

He’s one of the nastiest forces you will ever face. But until now, you probably didn’t even realizing you were in a battle with him.

How to know if you’re losing the battle

Before beginning your war against this invisible foe, here’s how to find out if he’s been beating you.

Have you found yourself thinking — “I can just wait until tomorrow to write. Tonight, I’m going to have some ice cream and relax” — and then, when tomorrow comes, you tell yourself the same thing?

Constantly putting off the project you know you need to do because there’s never a good time to start?

Or pouring time into things you know aren’t important to you?

Working late at a job you hate — even though you don’t need the money?

Reading books or watching TV shows you’re not really interested in?

Eating, drinking, or smoking habitually to “take the edge off?”

Lashing out at others when they tell you of their dream to write a book, become a musician, or move to a big city? Then later, asking yourself “Why did I do that?”

Or — and this is the worst one of all — actually making the time to work on what’s important to you, only to find yourself “blocked.”

So, after trying to work for a few minutes, you put down the paint brush, the pen, whatever, and say “The ideas aren’t coming today. I’m just going to stop.”

Don’t let your dreams die. Here’s how to conquer creative blockage forever.

It’s surprisingly simple.

You don’t have to pay a ridiculous amount of money to go to a seminar and learn a new “technique” from some guru.

You don’t have to stand on your head and rub your tummy while reciting the ABC’s backward.

You don’t have to complete an online course and learn everything about creative blockage or learn a bunch of theory that doesn’t work in practice.

Mr. Pressfield has distilled everything he’s learned about conquering creative blockage (forever) into a book called The War of Art.

You won’t find any complicated techniques within its pages.

What you will find is a simple, straightforward battle plan to help you defeat the invisible foe sabotaging your dreams and goals.

Henry David Thoreau said “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

Those people are losing the battle. They live with regrets. They push their dreams down until they forget they even had any to begin with.

Maybe you’ve been living that way too. Maybe you’ve been losing the battle. But you don’t have to.

You can win, because now you have a battle plan.

It would be easy to read this page and move on. Nothing immediately bad is going to happen. No one is going to stop you.

But before you do — ask yourself “Who is making this decision?”

Is it you — the bravest version of you — who wants to achieve your goals and will do what it takes to follow your dreams and remove all the obstacles you can control?

Or — is it the invisible foe? Disguised as indecisiveness, laziness, self-doubt.

The decision is yours, but if you’ve been creatively blocked…

If you have a dream that’s not yet a reality…

If you want to know how to remove every obstacle in your control to reach your goals…

Think hard about that decision.
