Your catalyst for living

The first requirement for making change is an awareness that something needs to change, that something is wrong, and that something could be better. This awareness is the spark that brings attention to the problem.

The event, or person who creates awareness often gets a lot of attention for creating that awareness.

The person who is willing to own the outcome and lead the change is the critical element in making change. Without stepping up and taking responsibility, change doesn’t happen. Without the leader of change stepping up and accepting responsibility, all you have is awareness of the problems that exist. This awareness is crucial, but on its own, it doesn’t fix anything.

There’s multiple destructive pathways with many branches. But the unsung, neglected and unpopular version of destruction is growth.

And some of the greatest and brightest growth occurs where everything is barren and bleak. Some might just see total destruction and carnage, yet the opportunity for unrivalled growth has the exact same landscape.

Perspective is everything.

This risk adverse approach is a result of fearful and weak leadership, where policy and planning are driven by fear their of public opinion courtesy of a rotten mainstream media platform. Any organisation that has any form of conflict at its pointy end should be driven to support the end-user. None deserve a frail egocentric leader who is fearful of answering some difficult questions, all of which have very simple answers.

This weakness from policy makers and commanders spreads like a cancer and infects every single individual below them...

Little key, heavy door
Little key, heavy door

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.
