Your skills are reflections of your goals.

These are the values of your time that you invested in your functional actions. You cannot pretend that you are doing this. Why?

Nature will teach you where you lack. And it will be swift and probably painful.

You can expand your functions because you study, you put into practice your learning, you put effort into this because it’s a realistic goal.

But you need to adjust your goals with your reality. And with reality itself. Or you will be a victim.

The challenge is to be functional in the goal because the demand of your skill and service will put your life in the lineup of death.

You can succeed if you map out your strategy. How do you do this?


Map out what is needed. Don’t copy bad imitators, they can pretend, but in reality they may be dragging you down into an abyss that makes you useless and wastes your time.

Question and evaluate. Repeat this until your skill level matches success. If you put your learning goal in a low level ‘get by’ attitude, you will achieve that rapidly. It’s a really tough place to put yourself. Don’t do it. There are painful implications that come with that choice.

Learn to ask appropriate questions. Ones that have value and future potential.

Take good care of yourself.

This is the way of the safety warrior.
