You are as solid as cold steel. This is your emotional core from now on. You are on a mission and will not be deterred. You are pursuing your Ultimate Self. This is a man’s gift to himself, his family and his Creator.
As Solid as Cold Steel
Life and circumstances will conspire to knock you off course and sometimes knock you right off your feet. Everyone gets hammered in life. Everyone gets bumped and prodded every day. You are no different than anyone else.
What is now different about you is that you will course correct back into your Armored Emotional Frame. Unlike your old self, your new mission in life is to pursue your very best every day regardless. This is your rudder. The longer you chase your best the more momentum you will have and the easier it will be to reclaim your direction and continue your worthy quest.
Always maintain your Emotional Armor. Do not let your emotions control your destiny. Tell yourself every day you are now as solid as cold steel. This is your emotional framework no matter what.
Practice makes perfect, even with emotions. Take pride in your new certainty. You will handle it all. You will stay cool. Be confident in your direction and use that confidence to be patient with difficulty and disappointment.
As a complete man, you will hold steady in the heat of the moment and then burn off excess emotional energy in your workouts. Lifting and high intensity cardio are a valuable tool in your chest as a Rugged Individualist. Besides health and swagger, they are an outlet for mental release and emotional fitness. It all ties together.
One plus one plus one equals four here at Becoming a Force of Nature. It is doing all the little things right every day that will add up to more than the sum of its parts. Just as with your physical being, every time you hold Emotional Frame you will get stronger. Your capacity for output and resilience will increase. Just like an athlete.
Maintain your Armored Phalanx. Note here how your complete Personal Armor is necessary in your pursuit to Reclaim Yourself. All four pillars will combine to bring out your Ultimate Self as you deal with life in this broken world.
Take the Time to Heal
When extreme difficulty or tragedy occurs in your life, take the time to deal with it. Make a note to yourself that, as with physical injury, you will take the necessary time to heal. You will heal and you will be back. No question about it.
No man is untouchable in this life. Every man is vulnerable in this crazy broken world we live in. But you’ve got that golden nugget tucked away.
Following the principles discussed here will not make you bulletproof, but it will make you resilient. It is my opinion that we are all here to face challenges. Some of us will face challenges much more difficult than others, but we will all have to face difficult life events.
If you have your Life Mission set, focus like a laser and take action to deal with your difficulties. Take care of things as best you can, staying true to your Mission. In some cases that is all you can do.
Tell yourself ahead of time this is a permanent track you are on. It will always be there. You are committed to your path. Having the decision pre-made will allow you to focus on recovery when necessary with a little something on the back burner. You have a little fire ready to be stoked with the fuel of your ambition.
With respect to your woman, taking charge of your emotional frame will raise the level of your game like nowhere else. Become the rock in your relationship. A solid cold steel rock that is compassionate and affectionate of course. From now on when the rubber meets the road let your woman learn you can always be depended on.
Fake it until you make it if you must. Promise yourself you will hold true and the rewards will be great.
Eons of adaptive female programming favor a man in control of himself. Conversely, a man not in control will eventually be the author of his own demise. Women are attracted to men of rising trajectory and emotional control under fire. A man who loses control will eventually lose his woman.
If you want her to hold you in the highest regard, then keep it together when it counts. This is especially true if she is the cause of your difficulties. Do not ever again let her see you out of state control. Maintain your cool emotional posture at all times.
If she treats you in an unreasonable fashion, then calmly tell her that her behavior is unacceptable. If she continues, then inform her you’ve had enough and will return later when she can be more respectful.
Walk out the door, grab yourself a cup of coffee and read to improve yourself. Work these situations the same way over and over again until she figures it out.
The secret here is to make the long term decision that you will permanently walk away if she doesn’t smarten up. Be patient and give her time to learn the new way, but make a firm decision.
No man needs to put up with an unreasonable or disrespectful woman. This is not a decision to take lightly, but a decision rugged men need to make.
Refuse to pour fuel on the fire and eventually she will get the idea. You are becoming a Force of Nature and will not be trifled with, especially not by your woman in your own home.
You’ve got your Life Mission and Life Vision to pursue.
My view is that if she wants aboard this freight train, then all the better. But if not, this armored car is moving on regardless.
This too will be part of the plan and another layer of Armor at your disposal.
All the best,
