Unlived life within you

Excerpt from The War of Art by Stephen Pressfield as shared by Corrina Gordon-Barnes, founder of You Inspire Me.

“Most of us have two lives: the life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.”

And Resistance talks. Boy, does it talk.

Resistance says… “You’re not cut out for self-employment.”
Resistance says… “Give up. Throw in the towel. Don’t waste another penny on this path.”
Resistance says… “You can’t do this. You’ll never make it. It won’t happen. Not for you.”
Resistance says… “You’re living in a dream world. Get a real job.”

And when you think about getting support, Resistance gets louder.

It says… “You should know all this already. You shouldn’t need help.”
It says… “You’ve left it too late.”
It says… “If it’s not working yet, it never will.”

And so we stay in the life we’re living.

But, what is the unlived life within you?
