Your only as good as your best battle gear
An article I posted on my blog recently. Let me know what you think!
When life unleashes hell what do you do? Is your battle sword dull and out of shape? Can it cut through vast enemies with ease? Do you retreat in the face of danger? A sword is a tool, a means to fight off foes (bad thoughts) I’m talking about your beliefs.
The sword represents your tactics for aiding a certain situation. Do you find yourself freaking out a lot about something that hasn't even happened yet? If this is the case, your sword is out of shape. You need to place your sword in the fire and wield something new, something sharp, something that defies your old thoughts and beliefs.
It’s your reality why hold on to beliefs that keep throwing you into the pit? You must drop them and make new ones, ones that make sense for you.
My sword has probably been warped, bent and twisted over the years but I was conscious of this and I MAINTAINED it. Meaning I saw there were issues with my self limiting beliefs and I reminded myself the truth.
The battlefield of your mind
You know the phrase " loose your mind" well notice how there is no "loose your body" phrase. This is because its true without the mind your body is useless but really without an effective mind your body becomes useless and a tool for sadness and misery.
If you have the belief that you can’t do something, prove it. If someone doesn't think you can do something, prove them wrong. Try it out and see if it is for certain that you’re not capable through practice of accomplishing your goal. The same goes for having too high of goals, this promises a feeling of failure. Start up small and work your way up.
You see if you have the proper tools you can conquer all sorts of situations with minimal fatigue and mental anguish.
Its your sword
Its your sword, you give it shape. When you create beliefs of your making you have to take responsibility for the sword you crafted. If your sword is too heavy, your sword is inefficient to carry out tasks. It weighs too much cause you haven’t proposed the right strategy.
Your shield is experience
You can’t win a the battle if you lack the proper shield. This is where experience plays a role; you must try things in order to create truths about them. You can’t be passive and just accept someone else’s beliefs. Make your own.
Experiences create a shield as proof that you know what you know. It solidifies doubt because you've been there you know where those thoughts/beliefs leads. A shield acts as a filter keeping the good stuff in and the bad stuff out.
Your helmet is awareness
Your helmet guards you from being knocked unconscious, the things that get in the way that warp your beliefs like alcohol and drugs, certain people etc. These things are infectious and have ways of penetrating through the strongest helmet.
Some very effective mind focuser's in my arsenal are:
Positive affirmations- keeping a nice list of positive things to repeat daily to get my mind focused on whats good
*The law of attraction- thoughts become things, your more dominant thoughts will find a way to make mental things turn into reality
*Maintaining a nice diet- healthy diet that keeps you at tip top performance
*Reviewing my personal beliefs- going over what I believe and why
Whenever I doubt myself at a certain point its nice to go through a refresher to review what I know that way it reassures me again. If you maintain your beliefs you stay sharp and effective if not you turn into a dull heavy burden.
If your beliefs contradict and are ever-changing, your battle gear turns into plastic. It’s important to not have a rubber sword where your beliefs change daily and you seem to wiggle one way or the other in a flighty desperation. There’s no consistency in that. Rubber swords don’t do much in the face of battle, you might as well just accept defeat.
Become a king
Certain beliefs have you living like a peasant when you should be dinning like a king. If your beliefs are faulty and don’t allow you to live in a castle throw them to the pigs and run to the manor!
Beliefs aren't generic; they are completely unique and customizable for everyone. My beliefs combination won’t necessarily work for you and vice versa.
Its important to keep around likeminded blacksmiths will help you keep your armor and sword sharp and effective. This will help you with accountability and when you need your gear to be modified you will know who to go to.
We have a hostage situation here
If your current beliefs have you held hostage, plan an escape. Actually better yet plan an escape today. If your current religion has you feeling trapped, you are free to leave at anytime but watch out the church’s (castle) will send their guards after you (other church attendees) and they will interrogate you.
Ask yourself why you believe in what you believe; this answer will reassure you of the value and priority of certain beliefs. If your answers are experiential then keep them if not test them.
Your battle chest
Know when to drop your sword. If you realize that all your beliefs are faulty place them in your battle chest and wield a new sword (try new beliefs) if you don’t like the new ones you can easily go back open up your battle chest and equip the old sword with no hard done.
Life can be a constant battle but if you have the right arsenal of tools best suited for you, life can be victorious! In life you are the master commander. You take charge in knowing that every decision you make has a reaction either good or bad of your own making. In combination of the full battle suit you create effectiveness that will prevail over any other battle gear. By being conscious and equipping your gear daily you will minimize the casualties of war. So ride of in the sun like the warrior you are!
