Today I’m going to tell you a story that will change your life, and one you’ll never forget. I know this is true because it has changed mine, and the hundreds of people I’ve told it to, and it lives on in these memories. Knowing it will make your life better. If you truly understand it, you will develop a type of emotional invincibility or an indomitable will. It is the story of one of the greatest warriors to ever live...
The hero's journey, for you, requires both will and ability. Will is your aim, morals, values, desires, and hopes. Ability is your discipline, talent, art, and craft – this is the way of the warrior, and walking it is the path of the warrior.
This episode tells the stories of Jeremiah Denton, elevates a new "responsibility to bear arms," and concludes with its centerpiece on the lessons from Miyamoto Musashi and his "Book of Five Rings."
Welcome back to Hardcore Philosophy and part III of "An Epic of Masculinity," Warrior.
