The Warrior’s Way, LLC: Positive Confrontation – Glenn Bott

Confrontation. 

The word itself gets many folks anxious and fearful.  If you’re like most people, you avoid it at all costs.  This seems to be a societal norm, so I though it merits a little discussion.  Let’s take a look at how Warriors deal with confrontation.

I think confrontation is a good thing.  It’s good because something new is being created.  It’s good because it’s usually a precursor to meaningful dialogue.  It’s good because it results in more specific communication so that all of the involved parties are having their needs met.  It’s good because it gives you an opportunity to stand tall in your truth.

In the Western culture, confrontation is often viewed as a negative event. 

Two or more people are disagreeing about something.  The word “confrontation” indicates the disagreement is getting more serious and being elevated.  All parties are digging their heels in and lines are being drawn in the sand.  Tension begins to elevate and people are most likely repeating what they’ve already said, but with a louder voice and a bit more animation.  Old positions are being reinforced with greater emphasis.

When this point is reached it’s a sure sign that effective communication has stopped, listening has been turned off, and all involved are assuming a defensive position.  None of which will lead to a positive resolution.  Fear and rigid behavior grow as those involved act to protect themselves.   A classic win/lose scenario.

Warriors don’t buy into any of this – they wade into the apparent confrontation with a confident stride and an attitude of finding common ground. 

Because Warriors stand in their truth and realize their power, they act and speak with confidence, love, and sincerity.  They’re authentic, loving, and are seeking mutually beneficial common ground.

Because Warriors stand in their truth and walk with Spirit, they aren’t fearful of confrontation.  They understand that confrontation is just a misunderstanding – a simple miscommunication.   At some point meaningful dialogue has broken down.  When this happens the involved parties tend to revert to their unconscious programming which typically reverts them back to their childhood where they seek to protect themselves and maintain their power.  In their fearful state they believe they can be harmed in some way.

Warriors have an attitude of Oneness and seek a common understanding without emotional attachment. 

They don’t have an emotional position they need to explain or justify.  The issue at hand simply doesn’t work for them.  While knowing their boundaries, they seek the common ground for all involved. 

By engaging in the confrontation without fear and emotional baggage, Warriors view this as an opportunity for growth.  Something new can be created.  A new viewpoint can be incorporated into their world.  The Universe expands.  They know that we’re all One and everyone is just doing their best to take care of themselves. 

Warriors also understand that any conflict they encounter is an external result of some unresolved internal issues that have arisen to help them grow in stature, wisdom, and their capability to express love.

The Warrior’s Way, LLC: 3 Steps to Success by Claiming Your Power – Glenn Bott

When you give your power away you leave yourself open to disillusionment, injury and regret.

 

Not good.

 

Think about the times in your life when you were riding high, having fun, and life was going your way.  I’ll bet you a lunch that you were feeling very powerful at the time.  In your goove.  Full of life and anticipation.

 

Here’s some steps you can take to start increasing your personal power and reclaiming those feelings and that “winner attitude”.

 

Untitled-1

 

 

Step 1 – Be Authentic                                            

 

Issue – Not speaking your truth and instead acting/speaking “appropriately”.  Whatever that is.

 

Solution – Society has many rules and interpretations.  I believe that the highest form of respect is to always speak your truth – no matter who you’re with or what the issue is.  Come from a place of love and be the best YOU that you’re capable of in the moment.  People will love, respect, and feel safe with you because they know you mean them no harm and will always speak your truth.  No games are being played.  YOU aren’t trying to gain an advantage.

 

Whenever you fall into the trap of thinking you need to behave a certain way, or give the appropriate response, you give your power away.

 

Step 2 – Be Impeccable                                         

 

Issue – you lack commitment in what you’re doing.  Your actions and your words aren’t aligned.  Your energy is split.

 

Solution – Be in the present moment and think before you speak.  Honor yourself and give yourself time to process the information before blurting out a response.  Being impeccable means walking your talk and doing what you say you’ll do when you say you’ll do it.  A simple equation.  Besides increasing your personal power, you will also be remembered because very few people actually honor their commitments.

 

Step 3 – Know Your Worth                                              

 

Issue – You let people walk all over you.  By trying to be liked and approved of, you twist and contort yourself in so many ways that no one knows the real YOU.  You’re always on the defensive, your self-esteem is in the gutter and you let people take advantage of you.

 

Solution – Stand tall and begin taking your best interest to heart.  If you don’t take of yourself, who will?  Take a breath, and start counting your positive attributes.  Take your time and do this until you start breathing easier, the weight on your shoulders lessens, and you regain your positive attitude.  Repeat to yourself that you matter, your opinions matter, and that you’re here for a purpose.

The Warrior’s Way, LLC: How Far Can You Go? – Glenn Bott

Always a great question!

I believe the answer is as far as you want.  As far as you believe you can.  We live in a very supportive and malleable Universe.  I know that anything is possible as long as you have the drive and commitment to achieve it.  You have to believe.

Untitled-1More than any other time in recorded history, we are seeing old paradigms fall – and on a regular basis.  Everyone thought the world was flat until Columbus came along and had the courage to explore and prove his theory was correct.  No one thought objects heavier than air could fly until the Wright brothers proved them wrong.  In both cases, the physical rules of the universe didn’t change – all that changed was our perceptions and understanding.  It took the belief of the pioneers/visionaries to tolerate our ridicule and show us the way.

What was magical and impossible to believe is now commonplace and taken for granted.  Such is the way of progress.

If you want to improve your business and personal situation start living in a world of possibility.  Instead of assuming something will fail, begin to assume it’s possible and start moving in that direction.  Strengthen your belief on a daily basis.  With a strong commitment, I have no doubt that you will achieve the desired goal.  It may not happen overnight, but with enough belief and conviction it will happen.

Check out the link below.  Damien is doing something that has never been done before.  You can see his commitment and perseverance in his eyes.  He believed he could accomplish the desired goal.  With a little practice and refinement as he moved forward, he managed to be the first in the world to accomplish the loop.

Note to self:  BELIEVE!!

The Warrior’s Way, LLC: Nimitz – Glenn Bott

Here is an excellent example of what the power of a positive attitude can accomplish in your life.  The life we live is all about our point of view and our internal dialogue.

Untitled-1In the following example, the reality of the situation was that the US had just been surprise attacked and our Pacific fleet severely damaged.  Admiral Nimitz accepted this reality while reviewing the damage.  His unique and positive viewpoint can be credited with the ultimate success the US Navy had in the Pacific.  He had a vision and held strong to that vision.  He KNEW that all was not lost.  He KNEW that repairs could be made in short order.  He KNEW that God/Spirit was on his side.

While we’ll probably never know what his internal dialogue was, we can be certain it wasn’t that of a defeatist.  I’m confident he had faith, KNEW we would get our ships back in operation, and was strategizing on how to move forward throughout the day.  He was single-minded on getting his fleet back in operation.  His determination and focused intent is what inspired those around him to move forward with equal confidence.  The entire attitude was one of “we can do this”.

To live our life to its fullest – we need to adopt the same attitude and internal dialogue.  Focus on what we want.  See the end result.  Find a way.  Trust in Spirit.

Remember – the Universe ALWAYS says YES!

From “Reflections on Pearl Harbor ” by Admiral Chester Nimitz.

Sunday, December 7th, 1941–Admiral Chester Nimitz was attending a concert in Washington D.C.   HeUntitled-2 was paged and told there was a phone call for him.  When he answered the phone, it was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the phone.  He told Admiral Nimitz that he (Nimitz) would now be the Commander of the Pacific Fleet.

Admiral Nimitz flew to Hawaii to assume command of the Pacific Fleet.  He landed at Pearl Harbor on Christmas Eve, 1941.   There was such a spirit of despair, dejection and defeat–you would have thought the Japanese had already won the war. On Christmas Day, 1941, Adm. Nimitz was given a boat tour of the destruction wrought on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.  Big sunken battleships and navy vessels cluttered the waters everywhere you looked.

As the tour boat returned to dock, the young helmsman of the boat asked, “Well Admiral, what do you think after seeing all this destruction?”  Admiral Nimitz’s reply shocked everyone within the sound of his voice.

Admiral Nimitz said, “The Japanese made three of the biggest mistakes an attack force could ever make, or God was taking care of America .  Which do you think it was?”

Shocked and surprised, the young helmsman asked, “What do mean by saying the Japanese made the three biggest mistakes an attack force ever made?” Nimitz explained:

Mistake number one: the Japanese attacked on Sunday morning. Nine out of every ten crewmen of those ships were ashore on leave. If those same ships had been lured to sea and been sunk–we would have lost 38,000 men instead of 3,800.

Mistake number two: when the Japanese saw all those battleships lined in a row, they got so carried away sinking those battleships, they never once bombed our dry docks opposite those ships.  If they had destroyed our dry docks, we would have had to tow every one of those ships to America to be repaired.

As it is now, the ships are in shallow water and can be raised. One tug can pull them over to the dry docks, and we can have them repaired and at sea by the time we could have towed them to America .  And I already have crews ashore anxious to man those ships.

Mistake number three: Every drop of fuel in the Pacific theater of war is in the ground storage tanks five miles away over that hill.  One attack plane could have strafed those tanks and destroyed our fuel supply. That’s why I say the Japanese made three of the biggest mistakes an attack force could make or God was taking care of America.

I’ve never forgotten what I read in that little book.  It is still an inspiration as I reflect upon it.  In jest, I might suggest that because Admiral Nimitz was a Texan, born and raised in Fredricksburg , Texas — he was a born optimist.  But anyway you look at it–Admiral Nimitz was able to see a silver lining in a situation and circumstance where everyone else saw only despair and defeatism.

President Roosevelt had chosen the right man for the right job. We desperately needed a leader that could see silver linings in the midst of the clouds of dejection, despair and defeat.

The Warriors Way, LLC: Both Sides Now – Glenn Bott

Untitled-1Noticed how your definition of love has changed through the years?  As a young adult, the world seemed more defined – more black/white.  As I gained years and experience, the gray area expanded.  What used to absolutely, positively be a universal “known” is no longer rock-solid.  In this ever-expanding universe we need to adapt and grow.  This also holds true for definitions we internalized as absolutes.

I now understand love to be like an infinitely faceted diamond.  There’s no end to the beauty and sparkle.  With a slightly different angle on a subject, a new realization is sparked, and your love expands and grows.  This is the beauty of being alive in this mysterious  and wonderful universe we live in.  We’re in an amusement park with an unending supply of wonderment, joy, and love.

To expand your love, begin with the decision that you want to be a happier person.  It’s all in your attitude.  Open your heart and practice loving things during your day.  A lot of us were taught to find differences and focus on these.  Once you focus on differences it’s easy to start categorizing and sorting them.  We can all find differences that will keep us on the top of the heap.  We’ll tell ourselves that we’re the best because. . .  

We fool ourselves and diminish our power because we’re always comparing ourselves to external criteria. 

The only way I know of around this is to start loving yourself and everything and everyone you encounter during the day. 

Find a reason to love. 

All you have to do is change your mind and decide to be more loving.  Find similarities instead of differences.  You’ll soon realize that we’re all in this together.  Let’s help each other and reap the benefits.  This is classic example of 1+1 = 3. 

A nice game you can play with yourself is to find 10 things during the day to love.  Once you’ve developed the attitude and habit, up it to 20 things during the day.  The actual number you set doesn’t really matter.  This is just a tool to build a new habit and find reasons to love.
