The Mary Marantz Show

May 11, 2021

Do you often sit and wonder about what it would be like to get out of your own way and chase your dreams? Perhaps you are ready to stop thinking about achieving something, and actually take the steps necessary to start accomplishing your goals. If this is you, then you are going to love today’s episode.

Today, Mary is joined by best-selling author, and one of Mary’s all-time favorites, Steven Pressfield. Known for his wildly popular book “The War of Art”, today Mary and Steven are diving into this novel within the context of Steven’s brand new book, “A Man at Arms”.

On today's episode, Mary and Steven talk about how both of these books represent the inner and outer battles we face when we try to create something that matters and send it out in the world; discuss the voice within our own heads known as resistance and the role it plays; and dive into how fictional and nonfictional characters alike can transition from one level of themselves to a much higher version with a greater purpose.

After listening, you will be equipped to understand and combat the resistance you're up against on a daily basis; learn that while you can’t control the level of talent we’ve been given, you can learn control your self-motivation, self-discipline, and self-reinforcement; and, recognize the power you hold when you lead with love not fear.

If you are ready to stop thinking about what it is you want to become, and actually become that version of yourself, you will not want to miss today’s amazing episode with one of Mary’s all-time favorite authors!
