What is the meaning of B.E A WARRIOR
Since time began there have been a class of people known as ‘warriors’. These warriors were the ones that protected their villages from outside aggressors and ensured they all remained safe in times of danger. Warriors were often known for their immense physical conditioning which was needed to be able to fulfil their role as protector of their communities. Warriors were also highly trained in combat skills whether it was hand to hand combat or that involving the use of weaponry. Warriors would be the ones that put their lives on the line in order to fulfil their duties.
For this very reason a warrior would not just need to develop advanced physical abilities but would also need to develop advanced psychological attributes that would enable them to face the trials that faced them. Warriors were disciplined both internally and externally for without this failure could be certain. They developed acute mental focus to keep their goals in mind consistently. They developed an attitude of persistence, facing difficulty, pain, discomfort, discouragement, fear and the prospect of failure and utter doom without quitting.
In fact it could be said that these psychological attributes are the very things that would make them ‘warriors’ as opposed to the physical attributes, for a strong well conditioned person without the courage to stand and fight or the determination to see battles through to the end would be of use to nobody. It is the internal development that made them who they are.
Why be a warrior in 2016?
It is this ‘internal’ development that the term ‘be a warrior’ is actually referring to. In modern day civilised society today we do not have to worry about fighting opposing tribes to defend our village but that does not mean we do not face our very own personal battles on an everyday basis.
Today we face challenges such as earning enough money to make ends meet, overcoming things such as alcohol and drugs use or addiction, physical health problems such as obesity and mental health problem such a depression or anger issues. There may other situations caused by other people such as physical assault or bullying. All of these things are things that hold us back from being truly happy and stand in the way of us achieving our goal.
The term ‘be a warrior’ then in this instance is about developing the mindset and attitude to overcome whatever it may be that is standing in our way. It is about choosing to face the pain of change and developing the will to fight instead of succumb to whatever it is that wants to hold us down.
On the deepest level it is about fighting the personal conflicts that arise in our head, not letting fear control us and resisting the temptations that we know are no good for us.
