Doloris Locum

The feeling in your stomach that tells you something is off, something is definitely wrong. A state of discomfort. A realm far outside that which you can find contentment. This place is where you go to grow, to get better, to succeed beyond your current state. In no way is it possible to increase in any way when captive in a place or state of comfort and familiarity. It is against the absolute nature of being to oppose a status or maxim of greatest entropy, but only in supreme denial and defiance of that which we are most prone will we find liberation from our most empirical tendency. Only in denying ourselves the luxury we consider satisfactory and safe can we march with steadfastness into territory far from respite. The commitment to drive forward with a veracious appetite for that which is unpleasant and uncomfortable is the only path to greatness. Be okay with feeling that which pangs you, become comfortable with being uncomfortable. A place of pain "Doloris Locum" is where you go to succeed all things.

Null Subsidium

I would but...........I could have if..............stop. To reach full capacity of one's potential he or she has to pull out all the stops. The real essence is to retract oneself from all reserve and to take full responsibility for your intentions, regardless consequence. This is the purpose as to why the default mindset is to have some residue of reserve, as to function as a buffer between failed intention of any kind.  With reserve stands some room for excuse, reason as of what could have been only if....... No if's or but's.  Don't allow yourself the disadvantage of not operating at your highest ability by rendering some proportion of reserve as disclaimant. Deny yourself reserve and own in completeness everything which you engage. Regardless of outcome, at least you won't be giving yourself a reason as to why you didn't give your all. No excuses. No Reserve........Null Subsidium.

Ultimate Composure

It in heat of the moment ,when the pressure is on, how is that you conduct yourself? How do you deny your instinct that tells you so innately to take the path of least resistance? Even when your head is in fierce battle with your thoughts, how do you control yourself? The answers to these questions will dictate absolute competency in composing oneself. This will have immense individual impact, but even greater influence on those around you. When facing what one would consider to be the toughest situation ever experienced, maintaining control of one's self is the only influence of that circumstance the individual has. In capitalizing on the knowledge of what one has control over, composure is the ultimate manifestation that one has liberated themselves of all things extemporaneous and outside their direct influence. Composure then becomes, in this sense ,absolute fortitude in the face of that which challenges you. Indeed, your ability to maintain your composure allows you to think clearly so that you can be of best service to yourself and others. You are no good to those in your presence if you cannot maintain dominion over your person. One without the capacity to succeed in composing themselves will not be respected by man on any terms. Strive to retain composure unconditionally and those who you serve and whom are subordinate will respect your state of humility and self-control. Be a rock for those in your presence, be a force to lift those around you, and be one that reveals to others their full potential. This is a possibility for ony one who consummates Ultimate Composure in all that he does, no matter the circumstance, life or death, no exceptions.
