Deep thought provoking questions on warrior mentality shine a bright light on one of the most ancient psychological archetypes known to humanity - the warrior. The perfect antidote to victim mentality, the attitude of the warrior embodies a powerful spirit that empowers us on the path to self-development and positive life change.
The warrior within wants us to engage with life, it wants us to live vitally, with no holding back. It would see us refuse to give negativity a stage and would have us forge a conscious and brave path through life.
When we are well connected with our inner-warrior we feel the same way. The warrior's positive life force and fierce determination in the face of adversity become our own.
The inner victim, on the other hand, is perpetually concerned. It's basic stance is passive - it feels encroached upon by life and circumstance. When the inner victim has its way, we just feel like curling up in a ball and waiting for it all to be over.
The victim within is content living within the stifling confines of the mind - however painful the experience may be. The victim within has grown accustomed to suffering. 'Better the enemy you know' is it's mantra.
The warrior within can never be content with such an existence. The inner-warrior believes in vitality, not suffering. It would have us step out of suffering and walk brave new pathways of our own creation.
Inspiration, not fear, determines the warrior's path.
When we're in touch with the warrior within we aspire and determine to live the same way. The inner-victim is left behind.
