“… be genuine…”

on April 2, 2012

“To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life.”– Chogyam Trungpa

Don’t beat yourself up for feeling what you need to. Don’t fake it ’til you make it. Feel it, and you’ll be a better person for it.

A warrior isn’t someone who pretends to be brave. It’s someone who, in spite of the fear, finds a way through the fear and comes out on the other side. As Ray said in his last post, you have to see and know you’re better for the trials, better for the struggles. Don’t act like these things don’t affect you. Prove that, although you may be shaken, while you are feeling the strain of it all, you’re continuing on and you’re not stopping until you succeed.

Whaddya’ say, warrior? Ready to face the world? I know you are.
