Description

The follow-up to his best-seller The War of Art, Turning Pro navigates the passage from the amateur life to a professional practice. 

"You don't need to take a course or buy a product. All you have to do is change your mind." (Steven Pressfield, author)

Turning pro is free, but it's not easy. When we turn pro, we give up a life with which we may have become extremely comfortable. We give up a self we have come to identify with and to call our own. 

Turning pro is free, but it demands sacrifice. The passage from amateur to professional is often achieved via an internal odyssey whose trials are survived only at great cost, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. We pass through a membrane when we turn pro. It's messy, and it's scary. We tread in blood when we turn pro. 

What we get when we turn pro. What we get when we turn pro is we find our power. We find our will and our voice, and we find our self-respect. We become who we always were but had until then been afraid to embrace and live out.

reconnect with ur why and start acting like a pro

I thought this book was about some technique on how to stop procrastination and self doubt when it comes to executing the work of a desired endeavour. But no it's not. This book is more about recharging and remembering your why you're doing what your doing it and to motivate you to stop the excuses and start doing. it will talk to a deep part of you. A book to be read and read as many times ad needed.

Not meaningful, nor profound

Overly extended anecdotes that lacked meaning or significance. Lacked depth and substance; did not expand meaningfully or in any way philosophically, as much as it tried to be.

Audio book was not the best format

Given the book is divided into numerous chapters composed of a concept and short exposition, it had the feel of having a daily thought calender being read out loud. I appreciated the content, but it is probably better suited to a written format rather than audio book.

Life changing

If you need a good kick in the ass and reminder that greatness comes to those who put their nose down, work and have patience...this is for you. Be prepared to be called out and put in a very interesting place emotionally if you’ve been giving in to your vices. We all start out as amateurs, life is about turning pro.

Great narration. Good message.

The Narrative is great. It was easy to listen at Double speed. The story may have been more pertinent to actual artist as opposed to an entrepreneur. There is decent crossover in the message. the message flowed well and was easy to listen to.

Not what I was expecting

What the heck was that, and who was the intended audience?
I am a "part-time" artist and I'm conscientiously trying to take my art more seriously and move to a higher level. I enjoyed the author's previous "War of Art". From the title and description, I figured that this book was for me. Nope.

Where I thought that the book would be about "amateurs" who were doing pretty good but need to be better, the author's definition of "amateurs" seems to be addicts who can't hold down a job. There's no useful advice for those of us who are somewhat on the right track.

The only helpful statements in this book were better said in "War of Art" (or countless other books on creativity or self improvement.)

Resistance is futile!

If you are looking for an exceedingly uplifting, powerful and entertaining roadmap to direct your inner self toward finally deciding to step up to the plate in the game that you are not only the referee, league manager, greatest fan and coach but also the star player, you'd best tighten your competitive resolve because you've found it.
This book is more refreshing than a breath of fresh air after a fart in a space suit, for lack of a better analogy. Steven Pressfield's ability to share his innermost drive and most vulnerable moments in his life so we can learn from his challenges is not only generous, but reflective of Steven's core honesty and personal wish for everyone who decides to turn pro to succeed on their own terms and become the "pro" they have designed for themselves.
Thank you Steven, for such a fantastic book. Thank you for sharing those moments.
