All Bow Before Him
The king of the jungle is the gorilla.
There’s a one kilogram silver coin you can buy, that has the face of a gorilla on it.
When the gorilla screams, everybody hides.
King Kong is KING Kong because of this.
The funny thing about gorillas is they rarely get physical.
They have such a MASSIVE and terrifying frame that don’t need to.
It’s kind of like what the metaphorical movie martial artist does.
The good guy, not the bad guy.
The good guy practices martial arts so he doesn’t HAVE to fight.
Not A Metaphor
How, exactly does this happen?
Consider that most fights aren’t exactly deliberate.
When people feel pushed into a corner, put on the spot, and they feel they have no other choice.
Of course, having no other choice is very subjective.
Everybody views the world differently.
But if you’re operating from a fear, scarcity mindset, and somebody challenges you verbally, and you tend to respond with worse case scenario thinking, this can easily lead to violence.
Confidence Is Flexible
But if you have a lot of confidence in your ability to defend yourself, you’ll never really feel backed into a corner, mentally.
And since personal safety is of utmost importance to us monkey people, and has been for millions of years (when we were more monkey than people), everybody else can see this two.
So it becomes a two way street.
You project a calm and confident energy.
So you are less likely to threaten others, and feel threatened by others.
Of course this is still a metaphorical, good guy, movie description.
There are likely just as many people who study martial arts so that they can beat the crap out of people as there are for more esoteric reasons.
But consider the art of verbal discourse kind of like martial arts.
Take a guy or gal who studies martial arts for all the right reasons.
You won’t have to know much about them to know there is something much different about them.
Their calm confident walk, their erect posture, their slow and confident movements.
They’ve practiced punches and blocks a kajillion times.
Now imagine that but from a purely intellectual-verbal level.
You can generally tell those who’ve practiced martial arts by how they walk, their posture, their movements, etc.
How can you tell somebody who’s practiced mental game?
Thinking and speaking skills?
Windows To The Soul
It’s always in the eyes.
When you have a conversation with somebody who has practiced tons of thinking and speaking skills, they eyes reveal everything.
As soon as you find yourself in a conversation with a person like this, you KNOW they are smart.
You KNOW they can easily destroy you in an argument, if they want.
But you know they can also describe some pretty cool things.
Tell some pretty good stories.
Because they have the eyes of intelligence.
The eyes of confidence.
The eyes of a true leader.
So, why not BE that person?
