Teaching People to be Unbeatable

By | July 22, 2022

[July 22, 2022]  Do we want to make something better of our life?  Yes, of course, we do.  If we are to make decisions and have the proper attitude to doing so, then to make our own life better, we should start by maximizing the quality of our life.  This is not selfishness.  Teaching people to be unbeatable is a noble aim.

You should figure out how to do that in a way that benefits your friends, family, and community.  And it would help if you did this with all seriousness because it makes life better for everyone.  It reduces a fair bit of the misery that would otherwise be part and parcel of life and makes everything function smoothly.

Imagine what the world would be like if everyone decided to do this.  Humans are truly remarkable creatures, and we restrict ourselves badly with deception, resentment, revenge, the desire to make things worse and arrogance.  Remember the seven deadly sins, those things that make us deviate from our true path.  Our true path should include the noblest aim you can conceptualize and then sacrifice your life to attain it.

There is nothing in that goal that isn’t good for everyone.  It requires willingly adopting responsibility; thus, the path is not easy.  But it is hard to understand why everyone wouldn’t do that.  A few people in our world are empathic sufficiently that they voluntarily invite folks to walk in the light.

We have to consciously decide that we will do everything we can as individuals to walk in the light.  And to regard that as a noble and heroic endeavor and make that first in our lives.  That is what we should be telling young people to do, and they can do it.  This makes them unbeatable.

If you’re not doing what you want to or think you should be doing, you don’t know who you are.  If you cannot tell why you behave as you do, especially if you behave badly, then you do not know what is driving you.

If you are diligent in your attempts to identify and fix your errors and aim high, then you are setting yourself on the right path.  Even if you do not know what goal to pick, be humble and pick a lowly goal.  Then, each day make a slight improvement.  Do this every day, and you will quickly see progress.

    The first step, Gen. Satterfield in teaching people to be “unbeatable” is to know that they have the desire/motivation to be unbeatable. Many of our young folk want to be weak, love being a victim, and are willing to throw their freedom out the window to be taken care of by government. Sad.

      — a bunch of pussies, parasites, and peewee types. I walk over them without any hesitation.

      Thanks for the link. I bought the book a few months ago and I just want to let everyone know that it is truly a wonderful read. The books gives you some insight into the Iraq War and into those who fought, not just the enemy but the bureaucracy too.

    Randomly reading some of the old articles from this leadership blog and found a number of very interesting blog posts. I recommend everyone do the same. You can also see how the website developed over time.

      Good point New Girl. And what I like most about them is that it shows Gen. Satterfield as a great American patriot.

    Gen. Satterfield certainly hit the ball out of the park with this article. Learn to be strong and you will never regret it.

    Wake up people!!!!! Do you want to be a wimp? Do you want people to walk all over you? Do you want your spouse or friends seeing that you can’t stand up even to a 5 year old? Don’t believe me? Fine. Fail at what you do. You will get tired, eventually, of failing. Me? I will be so far ahead of you, that you will never catch up. Follow the feminist formula to your detriment.

      Feminism is an offshoot of Marxism. And, I wonder why.

        Of course, most of us figured that out long ago. Yet, the feminists think it was their idea. ha ha ha haaaaa

    Basic recommendations from a proven leader. If you want to not follow it, so be it. Just be prepared to fail to succeed. And, let me know, and I’ll be praying for you.

    Good advice, especially for young folks, “If you are diligent in your attempts to identify and fix your errors and aim high, then you are setting yourself on the right path. Even if you do not know what goal to pick, be humble and pick a lowly goal. Then, each day make a slight improvement. Do this every day, and you will quickly see progress.”

      They’ll ignore this advice, or better yet, they won’t even know about it. It would do them good to read this leadership website by Gen. Satterfield. ✔ Just MHO.

        They will not read it. We read it and gain immensely from the discussion here in the leadership forum too.
