Here’s an observation.
There are individuals who train to their strengths instead of weaknesses, continually widening the gap between their strengths & weaknesses. Often, an expert in one area, is a novice in others.
The world around us is becoming increasingly hostile. At face value, you’ve got no idea who you might encounter, what they’re capable of and what their intentions might be. Now put this into perspective for military, law enforcement or other professions where you’re likely to encounter others who wish to do yourself or others harm.
Cardiovascular endurance and physical strength are force multipliers. They enhance or increase the efficiency of your current skill level, they are not a skill in itself.
Let’s point out an inconvenient truth.
The current political state of our Government is more focused on pleasing the masses than it is focused on what their core function should be. But this isn’t laying the blame on the organisations tasked with protecting our society.
Let’s change the narrative to personal accountability, instead of shifting the blame to a faceless collective. Let’s plant it firmly at the feet of individuals’ who knowingly and willingly place themselves in a position where a lack of self reflection can have lethal consequences.
Being hard to kill isn’t solely physical. It is a mental state which allows for calm and peace in situations that are anything but normal. It is a mentality that can help keep every other aspect in your life in check as well.
Confidence is a certainty of our aptitude to engage with the world. A self-confident person is able to act on opportunities, rise to new challenges, take control of difficult situations, and accept responsibility and criticism if things go wrong.

The consistent application of basic training principles is the little key. The heavy door is whatever your reason is for training the first place. Every locked door opens easily with the right key. You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.
Motivation for the motivated is a funny thing, because it isn’t about motivation at all. A tiny portion of society know exactly what they want, how to get it and what they have to do to achieve it.
They don’t need to be pushed or motivated, they need to be controlled.
