“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not the absence of fear.” - Mark Twain
Our bodies are extremely smart and when your life is at risk, or when you are in any other stressful situation, your body will activate an automated system located within in our brains. This system is activated so quickly that you might have already ‘reacted’ before you’ve been able to make a conscious decision. It is that powerful.
Although this system is great at protecting us from immediate threat, it does have flaws, as fine motor skills will be negatively affected which is turn can have a huge impact on your performance as a soldier. Even if you are not a soldier, it’s important that you are able to deal with stressful situations. That’s why I’ve included mindset principles in my program – to equip you with tools to deal with anything thrown at you.
