Amateur vs. Pro

If you haven't discovered Steven Pressfield's three edgy books on personal growth then you're in for a treat. He will jolt you out of denial and fear and into action.


This week I'm focused on Pressfield's difference between how we are when we are thinking/acting like an amateur vs. when we step into our "pro" selves. If you're like me, you've been an amateur for most of your life. I only made my decision to "turn pro" (in my mind and therefore my goals and actions) about two months ago. Actually about when I started this blog, producing my class on Skillshare and other tangible outcomes as a result of making this huge shift. Before that I was inconsistent, doubting and caught up in the left column below.


This is a recap I created of what spoke to me in his books on this shift. I'd love to hear if any of this speaks to you.
