In today’s modern world, we don’t tend to think of people as warriors anymore. Most of us are pencil pushers rather than fighters and it is very rare that we ever have to put ourselves in harm’s way or take on a gang of enemies.

This is a good thing for the most part, but it has resulted in many of us becoming soft and weak willed.

And the reality is that we don’t need to give up on being warriors. Just because we don’t need to fight anymore, that doesn’t mean we can’t approach modern challenges as warriors. It doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from adopting a warrior’s mindset.

And it doesn’t mean that there really aren’t any modern warriors left. There are those fighting on our front lines and there are those who simply approach modern challenges and obstacles with the mindset of a warrior from times gone by. In this post, we’ll take a look at what makes a true warrior and at whether you might fit that mold.

If not, then this list will help you to better understand the areas where you should aim to improve your conduct…

Takes the Harder Path

The warrior is someone who has a steadfast mission and who knows what they want to achieve. They have a purpose and a reason for being and as such, they are driven like few others.

Thus, the warrior doesn’t give in and take the easy route. They don’t relax on the couch and eat cake, they don’t blame others for their mistake. The warrior is happy to take the harder path if it takes them closer to their goal and if it helps them to become stronger in the process.

Sees Obstacles As Challenges

In a similar vein, the warrior does not see challenges as something to be feared or cursed. When things are going wrong, the warrior relishes the opportunity to develop themselves and to test themselves.

Doesn’t Give In to Fear

The warrior is not without fear, but they have it under control. The warrior knows how to use their fear as a motivator and how to suppress it when appropriate.

Stays Calm in a Stressful Situations

When everyone else is panicking, the warrior stays calm and focussed. They know what they need to accomplish and they know that getting in a flap won’t help anyone.

Looks After Their Body and Mind

While there may be few physical fights left, the warrior knows that they owe it to themselves and to those around them to look after their bodies and to train for a battle that may never come. The warrior doesn’t allow themselves to grow weak in times of plenty, they train, they hone and they respect their bodies and minds.

Takes Responsibility

The warrior is quick to take action and to make decisions, the main reason being that they are not afraid to take responsibility for their action. They gladly carry a great weight on their shoulders, knowing that they will face whatever comes.

Tiger started his day with a devastating triple at the very first hole and followed it up with a bogey in the second as he wasn’t able to zero in on his distance control with his second and approach shots.

His putting did not help either as he was not able to save par and bogeys when he needed to, Tiger looked broken at the back 9 as he was not able to recover at the closing holes and ended up 8 over par settling tied for 101st. He simply just had an ugly game and I hope he will be able to get it very low tomorrow to be able to make it to the cut line.

Though Tiger was not alone with a dismal round as most of the field really had a hard time taming the vaunted Shinnecock Hills.

Of the three of picks i have to win the US Open only Dustin Johnson was able make it under par and is tied 1st at the end of the first round.

Discovered this great TV show lately in Netflix, Brooklyn Nine Nine starring Andy Sandberg of Saturday Night Live and instantly my wife and I enjoying the show and now we are in the midst of binge watching it.

My favorite character on the show is Captain Ray Holt and Sergeant Terry Jeffords, I have been a fan of Terry Crews hilarious comedy since I first saw him in White Chicks. My wife fave is the pretty and very funny Amy Santiago.

We are now watching Season 3 and just heard that Season 5 is coming out, and that means well be binge watching all day and all night.

Was able to watch the 2nd day foursomes of the Curtis Cup 2018 at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, New York. Team USA is being led by the very talented young golfer in Lucy Li as they were able to take a 9-3 lead over the GB&I team after Saturdays matchups.

Lucy Li was teamed up with equally talented Sophia Schubert who is the reigning NCAA Champ and they were able to dispose of their GB&I counterpart in Paula Grant and Shannon McWilliam 7 and 5.

Only the team of Sophie Lamb and Olivia Mehaffey of GB&I was successful in beating their USA counterpart of the powerhouse team of Jennifer Kupcho and Lilia Vu where the former won with a score of 2 and 1.
