The Essence of being a warrior

The ESSENCE of being a warrior is to NEVER give up on yourself. You life matters. Know your WHY. You must never give up on your MISSION.

In order to KNOW your self or your reason for existence, you must understand your life's MISSION. You will not understand it until the day of your death, but you must UNDERSTAND your WHY. If you make no attempt to examine your life, you will always be a mere puppet, under control of forces or superstitions which you can never hope to begin to understand. Knowing your WHY is entirely about FOCUSING on your mission life, your reason for being your self ... as any serious student of the Stoics knows, "ὁ δὲ ἀνεξέταστος βίος οὐ βιωτὸς ἀνθρώπῳ."

This imperative of this command is hardly new, although the temptations to be distracted or to lose focus might be stronger than ever before. You may be tempted or even admonished to not give up on distractions or not quit on certain things that you have started. That temptation ignores the Reality no human possibly focus on everything worthwhile ... our attention is finite. Life is sublimely, perfectly finite. Each moment is therefore, infinitely precious and sacred ... thus, you must know your Why, know your focus, know your self. You must never, NEVER give up on yourself!!!
