When we are young life is new to us and can be both fascinating and terrifying. It takes time to accumulate experience and develop our understanding of the world that surrounds us, and even as adults we can count ourselves fortunate to have a clear perception of the world, and nature as well as a balanced and healthy character that is able to thrive even under trying circumstances.

Adapt and Persevere!

In order for a warrior to not only survive, but ultimately win on the battlefield, he/she requires many diverse special attributes and resources. The obvious necessary items would be weapons, food, water, materials, training, motivation, etc. However, I truly believe that none of the mentioned resources are more important than the capability to adapt and recommence when faced with formidable obstacles and challenges.

"Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value."

Albert Einstein

I had a very good job in the Banking Service industry. At the age of 34, I was promoted to Executive Director level, with responsibilities for a product worth more than 100 million Euros per annum, and teams located in several European, and US hubs of the company that I was working for. I had worked very hard to be successful at my job, and I felt I had reached that goal, even going beyond my own dreams. I was successful. For quite some time I enjoyed that happiness that always comes with the sense of achievement. Something similar to that which a runner feels after a marathon: every muscle of their legs ache, their throat is sore from the intensified breathing and they are covered in sweat, and yet there is always a big smile on their face: they are victorious and have overcome the challenge! Most of them do not even take the time to celebrate that moment, and are already thinking about the next run.
