Hope - Luck - Fear
HOPE ISN'T A STRATEGY...
Having a vision is the first step, having the commitment to turn that vision into reality is what separates those who take action from those who have hopes and make wishes.
Now don't get me wrong, it's powerful to have hope... But it doesn't replace having a strategy when it comes to tackling anything, but especially when it comes to protecting yourself.
It's not an either/or situation.
The job of the PeaceWalker is to lead from the front. Remember... Where ever you go everyone is a little bit safer because you're there. Do it ethically and follow the Most Good / Least Harm principle.
No, it’s not always going to be easy... sometimes it's not even possible. Other times it’s going to take everything you’ve got.
When it comes to building a life as a protector here are some of the biggest mistakes people make:
1. They chase shortcuts instead of putting in the time
Shortcuts also cut short your growth & expansion. Most people are looking for the magic pill instead of putting in the work. Dig your well before you're thirsty if you know what I mean...
2. They think they can do it on their own
Watching Youtube isn't real training! You need to actually train and you need someone to guide you. Learning self defense and being a protector is a perspective and lifestyle that has many contradictions.
3. They feed doubt and fear
No, it's not about having no fear... Being fearless is really about simply Fearing LESS. It's about knowing the risks and making your decision on how you will move forward. It's about being courageous. Clear and leading from the front.
4. They don’t have the patience to see it through
Everybody wants to see their results yesterday, but they don’t put the work in today. They forget that the work is part of the journey. Who you become on the journey is what matters more than the goal. You either pay the price with action now or you pay for it with regret later. In uncertain times, it pays to be READY. Having training and a strong network will help you to not just survive, but thrive in the good times and bad!
