“Maybe you’re uncomfortable with the idea of your mind as a battleground. But understand that your brain is wired to choose safety over your soul’s need to express itself. That’s why overcoming the inertia of safe choices requires the mindset of a warrior who is prepared to risk everything for the chance to live authentically.” – From the book
Every one of us has a purpose for being on this planet! We also have two Selves that exist within us. The Authentic Self is tethered to our Soul and cries out to us to do work that matters. The Insidious Self is the untethered fusion of our greatest fears with the greatest fears of our friends, family and society. The Selves battle each other constantly for the right to determine the course of our lives. And when we support our Authentic Self in the battle, we are in the best possible position to pursue and live our purpose!
“Winning the War with Your Self” gives readers the tools they need to defeat the Insidious Self.
About the Author:
Martin Pigg spent more than twenty years on three continents looking for his purpose. And he thought he’d found it when Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson agreed to help him go from prison guard to pipeline magnate. It was at that moment he believed his life was about to take off. Because what could possibly go wrong for a physical education major selling oilfield equipment to the Russians?
As it turned out almost everything, from a fellow prison guard stealing the business to shady deals with African con-men, deposed Iranian royalty, and a Georgian fugitive on the lam for embezzlement. After fleeing a hotel in Cotonou, narrowly avoiding being kidnapped in Tbilisi and surviving the Russian marriage from hell, he was on a downward spiral until the day he discovered his passion for flying airplanes. Ultimately, flying helped him find his purpose in life, which is helping other people find and live their purpose.
