Beating Resistance

Whenever I am embarking on a creative project that is challenging and risky, I read this quote from The War of Art by Stephen Pressfield. I've actually read it so many times that I have it memorized. That's all you need to know. The quote speaks for itself.

You know, Hitler wanted to be an artist. At eighteen he took his inheritance, seven hundred kronen, and moved to Vienna to live and study... Ever see one of his paintings? Neither have I. Resistance beat him. Call it overstatement but I’ll say it anyway: it was easier for Hitler to start World War II than it was for him to face a blank square of canvas.
