EP143 - Do Your Work

Good day, my friends. Welcome to A Moment with Moj, thank you so much for downloading the show. I am feeling on goosebumpily because we are together today. Wednesday, we're going to continue our look at The War of Art by Steven Pressfield from page 81, "The Professional conducts his business in the real world. Adversity, injustice, bad hops and rotten calls, even good breaks and lucky bounces all compromise the ground over which the campaign must be waged."

I am feeling all goose bumbly, because we are together 3 00:00:23.640 --> 00:00:24.260 to day 4 00:00:25.600 --> 00:00:30.140 Wednesday we're going to continue our look at the war of Earth by Stephen 5 00:00:30.240 --> 00:00:33.440 Pressfeeder from page eighty, one 6 00:00:35.240 --> 00:00:39.260 quote: The professional conducts his business in the real world, 7 00:00:40.400 --> 00:00:46.120 adversity, injustice, bad hats and rocky calls even good brakes and lucky 8 00:00:46.220 --> 00:00:52.400 bounces all compromised the ground over which the campaign must be waged. 9 00:00:53.660 --> 00:00:54.080 My friend, 10 00:00:55.080 --> 00:00:59.420 no matter which side of the obstacle or challenge that you were on 11 00:01:00.500 --> 00:01:05.980 it doesn't change the fact that another challenge 12 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:07.900 is on the way 13 00:01:09.640 --> 00:01:11.760 feeling like the world is out to get us 14 00:01:12.840 --> 00:01:16.100 only distracts us from the work 15 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:19.080 that we need to be focusing on, 16 00:01:20.340 --> 00:01:22.260 and what do we need to be? Focusing on 17 00:01:23.300 --> 00:01:28.120 my Bren, you know the answer to this question. What we can control 18 00:01:29.360 --> 00:01:37.800 remember. You are not a victim of the world, and I know that it seems at 19 00:01:37.900 --> 00:01:43.900 times that we're the only one that these things are happening to, but were 20 00:01:44.240 --> 00:01:46.620 all being challenged 21 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:54.480 to think that you are a victim, is an amateur move and to keep going over a 22 00:01:54.920 --> 00:01:57.220 litany of things that have gone wrong. 23 00:01:58.520 --> 00:02:01.940 Please right into the hands of the resistance. 24 00:02:03.240 --> 00:02:09.380 The resistance knows that if it can keep us momentin about the past, 25 00:02:10.680 --> 00:02:18.000 we're not focusing on the butere, which is going to leave us stock right where 26 00:02:18.040 --> 00:02:24.300 we are, which is exactly where the resistance wants us. The best thing 27 00:02:24.380 --> 00:02:30.800 that we can do when week face an obstacle, is to accept them and to 28 00:02:30.900 --> 00:02:32.620 focus not on why 29 00:02:33.780 --> 00:02:34.660 this is happening, 30 00:02:35.880 --> 00:02:36.420 but on 31 00:02:37.440 --> 00:02:41.040 this is happening now. What am I goin to do about it? 32 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:47.040 This can also go for when things are going quote, unquote, easy 33 00:02:48.220 --> 00:02:48.880 and it's as 34 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:56.060 equally easy to take our put off the gas pedal when things are going our way, 35 00:02:57.060 --> 00:03:03.840 and I struggle with this one myself- I can work real real hard to prepare 36 00:03:03.880 --> 00:03:07.960 myself for a GIG, but as soon as the show is over, I 37 00:03:09.000 --> 00:03:14.720 take a break and I stop practicing. I stop playing and I lose all the 38 00:03:14.740 --> 00:03:21.840 momentum. Our work ethic has to be the same, no matter where we are on the 39 00:03:21.880 --> 00:03:22.540 camp. I 40 00:03:23.800 --> 00:03:24.280 my friend 41 00:03:25.440 --> 00:03:32.460 know that every challenge overcome is preparing us for the next challenge. 42 00:03:32.700 --> 00:03:34.520 That's on the way! 43 00:03:35.900 --> 00:03:41.240 Remember you are stronger. You are smarter than you think you are. 44 00:03:42.880 --> 00:03:43.520 You got this 45 00:03:45.380 --> 00:03:48.740 carpet momentum, I'll talk to you to morrow. 46 00:03:58.740 --> 00:03:58.760 I
