Why are we so comfortable with the idea of failure, but fear the idea of success? Why do we self-sabotage ourselves when we are at the brink of reaching new levels of success? What part does your ego play in this?
 
In this episode of the Align Podcast, Steven Pressfield and I chat about resistance. While we tend to be afraid of failure, we tend to be more comfortable with that than the idea of being successful. In fact, we often find ourselves resisting success and engaging in self-sabotaging behavior. While the exact reason why we do this to ourselves is unknown, a plausible theory that Steven shares with us is that our own ego is trying to stop us from making that shift to the greater self, which is the I. 
 
Plus, Steven also talks about how most of us are awaiting this one big Aha! moment in our lives in order to find our passion and zone of genius, but that the reality is that life is comprised of plenty of little ah-ha moments that slowly guide us towards that ‘big thing”.
 
Steven Pressfield is the author of 18 books. His struggles to earn a living as a writer (it took seventeen years to get the first paycheck) are detailed in The War of Art, Turning Pro, The Authentic Swing, Nobody Wants to Read Your Sh*t, and The Knowledge.
