ARE YOU A WARRIOR?

When most of us think about when envisioning what a warrior looks like; we often think of Conan the Barbarian or Braveheart or even Russell Crowe in the movie gladiator or Brad Pitt in Troy! Maybe that’s you? You got your gym skills, your shooting skills, hell, you may even have nunchuck skills! But do you have the heart and mind of a warrior?

We look up to those chiseled warriors and watch them overcome unbelievable odds and conquering evil for the sake of mankind and winning the day! They have great Combat skills and some of them even have super powers! They carry themselves with the perfect physique and are always battle ready!

Not Your Typical Warrior!

But where I’m coming from today and the question I have for you is this, “Do you have a warrior’s mind? Do you have a warriors heart?  How are you preparing yourself for battle?  What I mean by that is; “are you preparing yourself for the battle of the mind?” DO YOU have what it takes to consistently Win these battles? What do you think your perfect Warrior would look like?

Your Mind is a Battlefield

Do you realize that there are bigger battles than on a real battlefield? Having the mental fortitude to face down your demons, overcoming your fears, your insecurities, your anger, your struggles in this life.
 You know maybe becoming a warrior also means getting on your knees and praying for strength (phil4:13) in my book. I don’t know how I would make it without my Faith and my God to guide me. That’s my take on this.  Renew Your Mind!

A Warrior Defined

Becoming a warrior means showing up every day for your friends and family no matter how you feel. Being the shoulder for someone to lean on in time of sickness or trouble.
Being selfless for your family, your spouse or parents even. Helping others become their best regardless of the challenges that you face are facing alone. Becoming a warrior means discipline, sacrifice and daily striving for victory.
Taking on the Heart of a warrior means having compassion, empathy and mercy for others around you. Becoming a warrior requires emotional control and stability.
Becoming a warrior means not just preparing the body, but also the heart and mind for you to be all you can be for absolute victory in this life.
Become a Warrior Today!

WINNING YOUR BATTLES…..

So many people have battles they face daily.. Battles happen on many fronts. Physical, Emotional, Mental and YES, Spiritual.  Battles and enemies come in many forms: abuse, addictions, anger, anxiety, depression, fear, shame, ptsd, traumas, insecurities, disease and illnesses etc..etc..

How do we overcome these battles? Do we give in to them and be left defeated?

ARE YOU A FIGHTER?

No, we FIGHT! How do we fight?

We seek allies, we get help, we learn to understand our enemy and how to defeat them! We suit up with armor and weapons that will enable and empower us to win!

Mentally, we dig deep and draw strength from within and we do all we that we can do to STAND and conquer the enemy that wishes victory over us!

I don’t know what type of battles you’re facing, but don’t think for one minute that you’re alone.. You’re Not… We all have ’em and we can choose to fight and WIN!

But, It’s up to you isn’t it? YOU KNOW?

Sometimes the only thing that’s stopping you is YOU!”

Don’t accept defeat! Be encouraged, dust yourself off and take a stand today…

BE A FIGHTER!

Remember With God nothing is impossible. Be a Fighter and Win Your Battles Today! Being a fighter isn’t easy that’s for sure. But, we are stronger than we think when we look back over the other side and realize all we have accomplished! Mindset is Everything!

Your To-Do List: Unforeseen Events Will Arise

No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling tasks, unexpected obligations and interruptions arise that could throw us off our plan.

Published

Each day you compose your to-do list and begin proceeding merrily down it, do you take into account what is likely to occur in the course of a day? No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling the tasks, invariably, unexpected obligations, interruptions, and other developments arise that are going to throw us off our plan.

How do you react when you are humming along and, suddenly, you get an assignment from out of left field? Perhaps your boss has asked you to jump on something immediately. Maybe a client calls. Maybe something gets returned to you that you felt was complete.

If you are like most professionals, you immediately will become flustered. The intrusion on your time and your progress means that you are not going to accomplish all that you set out to before the end of the day. Is there a way to proceed and still feel good about all that you accomplish?

A Supplemental To-do List

I believe there is, and it involves making a miniature, supplemental to-do list that accurately and completely encapsulates the new task you now need to handle.

Why create this supplemental to-do list? It gives you focus and direction, reduces anxiety, and increases the probability that you will remain buoyant at the time of its completion and be able to turn back to what you were doing before the task was assigned.

If you don’t compose such a list, and simply plow headlong into the unexpected challenge that has come your way, you might not proceed effectively, and you might never get back to the to-do list on which you were working.

Unforeseen tasks that arise represent more than intrusions on our time; they represent intrusions on our mental and emotional state of being. Some people are naturally good at handling unexpected situations and often work as public servants, such as police officers and firefighters, or in health care, as nurses and orderlies.

Most of us, however, are not wired like this. Interruptions and intrusions take us off the path that we wanted to follow, and tend to be at least momentarily upsetting. Hereafter, when executing the items on your to-do list, proceed with the mindset that there will be an interruption of some sort. You don’t know when it is coming or how large it will be, but it will pull you off course.

Equanimity Reigns

The key question for you is: Can you develop the capacity to maintain balance and equanimity in the face of such disruptions? The good news is that you can, and it all starts with acknowledging that the situation is likely to happen, devising a supplemental checklist to handle the new task, and as deftly as possible, returning to what you were doing.
