    Never allow the fear of being judged make you not try to be exceptional!
    Whenever you break free of trying to be “normal”, other “normal” people will do their damnedest to make you feel like ****! One of the worst things we can do in life is to listen to people who aren’t even trying to do what we are attempting to do.
    Think about it- how many people are sitting back on their couches armchair-quarterbacking the lives of others? We have people who can’t even run a mile critiquing a young man who wants to become an Army Ranger. We have people who can’t throw a football 10 yards talking **** about the play of an NFL QB. We have people who barely graduated high school discouraging a young student from applying to an Ivy League. The examples are endless.
    There is a pattern here. Most of the people giving the advice, doing the judging and criticizing, etc., are people who have failed to even attempt greatness.
    It is so easy nowadays for people to publicly judge others thanks to technology and the many platforms at their fingertips. A lot of these underachievers can easily hide and talk their ****. This outlet makes them feel better about themselves.

    You can’t allow these cowards to prevent you from excelling in life or at least attempting to do so! If the people around you aren’t pushing you to exhaust your physical and mental limits, do not allow these people in your life! They will do everything in their power to bring you down as you make them feel insecure because they aren’t willing to give the effort that you are everyday of your life.

    Back when I was doing my part to help folks with personal protection and responsibility with a defensive handgun minus the sell you another seat in our next class B.S. fluff I often had individuals worry about moving while practicing on their own time at the range. They didn't worry about safety, not being able to perform or anything like that. They knew it was safe. They knew that failure was a driving force to become better, it was a learning opportunity that pushed improvement. You know what they worried about? They worried about what the toe-the-line traditionalists, who thought standing, feet planted while they sprouted roots and shot bullseye at 30 ft. and the target carriers not to mention the walls was self defense, would think. Theu gpt over ot when they realized those people don't mean **** and are happy laying in their own filth.

    Some times and with some things but when it comes to life or death, the difference between injured or really ****ed up there's no room for B.S.

    People tend to be hesitant to deviate much from the established norm

    Most people want to be liked and accepted, we are tribal creatures by nature and want the protection that being a member of a tribe affords us, although that does change some in males as we age

    For the most part that is fine, the "go along to get along" concept is time tested

    For most, being accepted and liked by the tribe is more important than deviating from the tribal norm even when it is in their best interest to do so

    Sadly, the concept of tribalism for the individual can be an illusion as any member of the tribe can be cast out at any time for any reason should the majority of the tribe agree

    As with most things there are pluses and minuses to the tribalistic concept
