29. Why We Train - Mo Chih Chu
We train our minds and our bodies to be able to execute effectively under pressure.
To be able to check, adjust, educate, connect with the maximum amount of people.
To be the leader, our patient’s need, to be the light in the dark.
As Andrew Jackson said, “One man with courage is a majority.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Zen master, observed while on their refugee boats: “If we met with storms or pirates and everybody panicked, all would be lost, but if only one person on the boat remained calm and centered it was enough, it showed the way for everyone to survive.”
Take a deep breath, stay calm, centered, and show your patient’s the way forward.
Be the leader your tribe needs.
Now, more important than ever is the need to train your mind and body.
Read your goals and affirmations.
Do your meditation and visualization.
Get yourself moving with physical exercise.
And perform reflection, to not buy into the hysteria, but to charge into the challenge.
