PREPARING FOR BATTLE

A study conducted on students at Rochester University revealed that students who primed to reframe their stress as the body's way of "preparing for battle" performed much better than those who did not.

When you come to think of what better preparation can we have than stress? With stress comes an increase in heart rate, our pupils dilate which give us better sight, there is increase mental activity which makes us think better, there is increase in skeletal muscle strength which will make us perform better!

So it's all about perspective and how we take advantage of our stress to face our current obstacle head on!

The Force of Friction

Friction is the force that is produced when two surfaces move across each other.

We normally equate friction to resistance and when we have friction in our daily lives, in our jobs and in our relationships it is normally something we would rather do without.

But friction is not all bad. When two surfaces move across each other kinetic energy is produced which is then converted into thermal energy. An example of this is the production of fire by rubbing two sticks together. Of course with fire comes the ability to cook food, warmth and light.

Instead on focusing on the friction we are experiencing at the moment, let us focus on what we can turn it into!

OVERCONFIDENCE

In 1954 the French commander Henri Navarre was confident that his 16,000 largely elite troops would easily crush General Vo Nguyen Giap's black pajama, shower clog wearing farmer Viet Minh forces.

Outnumbering the Viet Minh forces 4 to 1, it was a sure win for Navarre who commanded his forces in an air-conditioned office in Hanoi while Giap from a cave. But his overconfidence was biggest mistake.

The French depended on air support for delivering everything from food to bullets and Giap focused on shooting down all planes and capturing supplies.

Giap used his knowledge of the bad weather and the mountainous terrain with his troops often only riding on bikes, hiding in holes as the guerrillas would sneak in the French air base destroying countless planes on the ground.

Giap avoided the powerful French B26 airplanes and focused on destroying the aircraft carrier which the planes were supposed to land on.

Giap won the battle despite the overwhelming advantage of Navarre.

Having the upper hand, having a good deck of cards or all the advantages in life does not guarantee success, especially if you go on carelessly without properly assessing the situation.

Always tread unknown territory carefully and never allow overconfidence to get the best of you.

Sometimes things can just lead to us feeling so discouraged that we would just like to give up, throw in the towel and concede to defeat.
One thing which we should always keep our minds though is that failure is just a label! If we look at the lives of so many of the greats- from Albert Einstein's teachers who said: "He would never amount to much", to Michael Jordan being rejected from his high school basketball team they have one thing in common- they never gave up!
Do you think we would hear of their legacies today if they gave up after one lost battle? We all come from different backgrounds, with different problems, of different situations and whether it is related to martial arts, fitness and life- we just have to keep our heads up and push forward.

In a time wherein flight was deemed impossible by man. A young boy was being homeschooled by his mother and through her teachings he fell in love with art, the life and works of Leonardo da Vinci and the stories of Jules Verne.
At the age of 12, after an inspiring trip with his father wherein they had a long and interesting discussion in the natural sciences, the young lad immediately went to work and invented a small rubber band powered helicopter.
After decades of trial and error, in 1939 at the of 50, Igor Sikorsky became the first person to successfully build a working helicopter!
Having his own company-Sikorsky Aviation , he made sure that this quotation was placed inside the premises for everyone to see and be inspired that nothing is impossible!

In 1984, the Guinness Book of World Records listed Sir Ranulph Fiennes as the world's greatest living explorer.
He is the first person to visit both the North and South Poles by surface means and the first to completely cross Antarctica on foot. Not content with this, at the age of 65 he climbed to the summit of Mount Everest.
His statement reveals to us that aside from equipment, he does his homework, he does his research and he properly prepares before embarking on such explorations.
Preparation is indeed something which would also equip us to handle the storms of life- whatever that storm maybe and as that storm hits would be ready not only to protect ourselves, but others as well.

The father of the modern day helicopter Igor Sikorsky once said: "According to the laws of aerodynamics, the bumblebee cannot fly because of the shape and weight of its body, but the bumblebee doesn't know anything about the laws of aerodynamics, so it goes ahead and flies anyway."

Sometimes we when the stress hits us hard at work, at school, or at home we just wish it could just disappear so we can have things back to normal again.

But stress is not all bad. The Wolff's Law is an excellent example of good stress.
The Wolff's law was developed by German anatomist and surgeon Julius Wolff in the 19th century and it states that: "Bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed." This actually has excellent implications for training, because it means that the harder you train, the denser your bones become. The more you punch that bag, the tougher the bones of your hand will be!

So let us embrace stress as something which toughens us up as we get ready to fight for another day!

This is reminiscent of what Henry Ford said: "Whether you think you can or think you can't-- you're right."



If you look at the lives of the greats, they have one thing in common- they believed in themselves even though nobody else believed in them. They believed in an idea even though everybody said it wouldn't work. They never gave-up even though the circumstances seemed impossible!

We live in times wherein everything can be at our doorsteps with one tap of the screens of our smartphones.
But even with the advancement of technology, some things still take time. We can not run a marathon just by practicing overnight, we can not become a black belt just by training one time. Paraphrasing the words of Nancy Gibbs: "The marathon is a public test of private will which took months and even years of solitary training." To some this can be disheartening. What if after all that training I still fail? Well Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr puts it well with this quotation. Do whatever you can- just keep moving forward! #MondayMotivation #MartinLutherKingDay

Going into any battle with doubts and disbelief already puts us at a disadvantage. Even when nobody else believes in us, the first step is always that we believe in ourselves, because this ensures that we give 100% of our hearts in whatever we are pursuing.
