If That's What You Think Then...
I was listening to one of Jocko's latest podcasts where he was talking about how predator's choose their targets.
Not new revelations, but it was good.
He was talking about how through body language alone (NOT even facial expressions, just body mannerisms) how it almost instantly identifies them as targets.
He goes into detail of the studies done both a few years back namely an early study by Grayson and Stein (1981) called: Attracting Assault - Victims' Non-Verbal Cues, where these two sociologist's interview inmates who had been convicted of sexual assault and documented how they identified individuals as vulnerable.
(Jocko goes into more current studies as well.)
There are a number of things that scream easy target to the people who are looking for a victim. Mainly the confidence in how you present yourself to the world.
So, are you telling me that your mannerisms give you away? (Yep.)
Your posture? (Yes.)
How you walk? (Yes that too.)
As you may well imagine the same holds true regarding bullying and people taking advantage of you (or your kids) too!
What you say. How you say it. Your tone. All these things are factors... Not to mention what you DON'T Say too!
There are layers of Self Defense beyond simply what to do if someone tries to ___________________ you! (Fill in that blank w/rob, mug, rape, carjack, assault, hurt, take advantage, etc. etc.)
There are people who walk through life more confidently and gracefully than others.
There are people who get taken advantage of, bullied and attacked more than others.
And if you think that is only about you carrying a gun or learning how to kick and punch, than you have been lead astray or at the very least misinformed.
The Bigger Question is...
How do you want to live your life?!
As the victim?
As the thug?
I doubt either.
It gets a little tricky finding a balanced approach at Life.
It's easy to get fooled w/sexy sayings like:
Treat everyone professionally, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
Kill'em all and let God sort them out.
Or the current popular one...
Be the Sheepdog.
It's Easy to Start w/the Right Intent...
...only to get confused and accidently end up becoming the thing you were training to protect yourself from in the first place.
Simple, NOT easy!
The fact that you are reading this I can bet that you aren't looking to be a thug.
I bet you are looking to learn how to more effectively protect yourself and family from threats that you face, while at the same time live a healthy, happy, fulfilled life.
Am I right?!
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say, Of Course I'm Right!
