I have so enjoyed our business book club so far! It has been fun to dig into these books with you and figure out how to apply them to our business (and life!).
For our October book we are going to dive deep into The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. This book was one of those books that honestly changed my way of thinking! Here is what you find on the back cover.
In this powerful, straight-from-the-hip examination of the internal obstacles to success, best selling author Steven Pressfield shows readers how to identify, defeat , and unlock inner barriers to creativity.
You may think, “well I am not a “creative” but this book goes so much further. It is one of those books that provides a message any entrepreneur can use.
I am not sure how many of you have struggled with fear over your dreams. I know this one has hit me (several times if I were being honest). In one chapter, Pressfield says, “Resistance is experienced as fear: the degree of fear equates to the strength of the Resistance. Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to use and to the growth of our soul.
Wow! To think of our fear as just a type of resistance that is keeping us from what we REALLY should be doing.
He goes on by giving amazing suggestions and ways that we can battle that resistance that is in each of us.
This book club is not your typical book club (no wine included 😉 No, seriously, in this book club it is part book club discussion, part networking with other entrepreneurs, and part business coaching. I provide insights and worksheets to help you take the information and implement it immediately. I help you with the “so what” of the concepts in the book!
I hope you will join me on Wednesday, October 27 on Facebook Live. You can also sign up on my website (www.cindybriggsphd.com) to get reminders and updates on the book club.
