Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants to Be

Are you losing your “war of art?”

Are your artistic and entrepreneurial dreams being defeated by self-sabotage, procrastination, doubt, fear, distraction, perfectionism, and the thousand other snares that Resistance sets for all of us? How can we overcome this monster that resides in all of our skulls and whose only aim is to stop us from realizing our dreams?

The answer is in nine words:

“Put your ass where your heart wants to be.”

“Ass” = commitment.

Want to write? Put your ass in front of the keyboard.

Wanna dance? Get your butt into the rehearsal studio.

Magic happens when we put our identity on the line and declare, even if only to ourselves, “This is where I stand, this is what I aspire to, this is who I am and will become.”

In that instant, we move from being the passive, indecisive victim of circumstance to the active, goal-pursuing hero of our own lives. This is a seismic, cosmic shift. It changes everything.

You don’t have to quit your job or overturn your existence. But you do have to plant your artistic or entrepreneurial flag … and mean it—for today, for tomorrow, for the rest of your life.

Heaven comes to our aid when we make this shift. The universe aligns with us and with our dreams when we put our ass where our heart wants to be.
