Here is thought what makes someone tough and what makes someone strong? I work with young men that work as firefighters, they are in good shape but does that make them tough or strong? The idea of strength is not just what your muscles can do but what you can do with your mind. Can you last through situations that you are tired and your muscles are starting to cry. I just watched young men try out for our fire department's reserve program, they had go through a firefighter agility simulating fire ground work that must performed quickly & correctly in rapid but safe manner. These men looked tough & strong but yet 60% failed the agility. Not because they were not strong. Many of them were very muscular, taller then me and looked tough but had no heart, their wills failed them to get through it. I have competed the agility annually years in 8 minutes 12 seconds. I just focused my mind and used Chi- breathing taught to me complete it. Recently we did progressive hose lays with 50# packs on our backs for wild land fire fighting up the hills, with the goal to lay 1000 feet of 1 1/2 inch charged fire hose rapidly with three men teams. I performed this three times in row with three different crews, twice I had guys so tanked they were on their knees done, spent ready to heave their lunch up. Yes I was tired yes I was sore but still we had job to do, you must have heart to see it through. This so is true with fighting, I have seen guys look tough but start talking crap, and I know they already have doubt in their minds. There are three enemies, one must beat to be strong of mind and spirit, these are fear, doubt and confusion! If one has faith in their heart, self-confidence, and plans & skills for when thing go right and go wrong then they can beat this enemy. This are my observations based upon life.
