Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

A lot of young guys write telling me they want be in the business or be like Ultimate Warrior, live like me, look like me, think and act like me. Last week I even had a guy tell me it was my responsibility to find a replacement Ultimate Warrior, train him and put him in the business. You believe that shit? When that kind of stuff comes into my email box the comedy of it allows me to forgo stomach work for the day because of all the sustained, deep laughter.  Anyway, Ultimate Warrior was great. He was One-of-a-Kind. I know what the fuck I achieved.

But about others, about you, you young guys– man, the whole fucking world is your arena. Don’t be stupid and limit yourself. Do YOUR intended Greatness — not someone else’s.

This morning, I had just read through about a dozen emails from young guys and was digging through my stack of Weapons to choose one to post. I saw this one. I’d forgotten about. I did it some time ago while I was thinking the same thing I am saying here now.

Clarity on HdNET “The Voice” interview…

Hello, warriors. I wanted to clear up any rumors or misinformation about the HDnet “The Voice” interview…

The Movement: One Warrior Nation.

Hello, warriors.

Updates.

A few weeks ago there was some buzz that I was potentially going to be involved in some media/entertainment project. And at the end of one of the Karma Collecting videos there was a mention of a television project in the works. I wanted to let you know that I am actually involved in the development of a project but I don’t have enough details to make me feel comfortable in telling you too much at this time.

In fact, when that buzz a few weeks ago starting coming out, I killed it because I knew in my gut some of the specific information that others I am working with on this project wanted to release would have to be retracted not long after an announcement was made. Specifics that are on the table now do not altogether interest me. I need to be proud of anything I do and be inspired by the idea of doing it. I’m not interested in doing anything along the lines of your typical reality TV show. Any show I do must have substance and a purpose. So we will see how things turn out over the next couple of weeks. I will let you know that the show will have much to do with one of my long-time interests, mentoring people in a positive and inspiring way, instilling a desire in people that life is worth kicking ass at, in a warrior way, mentally, physically and spiritually.

I have an opportunity to do something on my desk right now, an opportunity that will give people a chance to see a side of me they’ve never seen before. By the middle of this week a date will probably be put to pen on the calendar. I will let you know.

In a few days, www.ultimatewarrior.com will close to under go redevelopment, not just redesign but total redevelopment. There will be a clock ticking down on the home page, along with something else that I think you will really enjoy. This clock will be set to a time 3-4 weeks in the future and when all the sands of the hourglass have leaked through, my web presence will relaunch as One Warrior Nation. One Warrior Nation will be an online community for people who want to live positive and inspiring lives, be the best of the potential they have to be — live their lives AS warriors. Rumor has it that my Alter-Ego will be making surprise appearances. Intense dude, that guy – still continues to inspire me even all these years after my time in the ring.

O.W.N. will be the first major step in what I meant by saying Karma is Coming to Collect. Terry Bollea does not have anything I want. Nothing he possesses is of any value to me.  I don’t need his wrestling ring or his wrestling show.  I’ve no desire to have his silly and superficial fame and celebrity. The spotlight he stands in is shady and stained. I don’t want or need it. What I am and what I have to offer is brighter and more honorable than his gimmick and anything he is doing. The impact and impression I can have on an audience being the man I am today will be greater and deeper than any “pop” Hulk Hogan ever heard or felt.

I never stopped believing that the day would come. That day has come. The Movement: One Warrior Nation.

I have attached an audio clip. With the newly developed O.W.N. site, interaction will be consistent and content will be varied. There will be written pieces, video and audio. The development team tells me audio would work great because it can be downloaded to your Mp3 players and iPods. 

For years, you have been asking me what I do to be successful at living. Two things I do every day:  I write (in my journal) and read. I read great stuff, not cheap shit. I read to be inspired for kicking ass. Today, I am going to start sharing my reading inspiration with you. This audio-file is a trial run — a very rough trial run. I even mistakenly sliced off the beginning of the audio where I was telling what book and author I was reading: “Unrevealed Secrets of Man,” By George Jowett.

This is an idea I’ve had for years. In fact, I’m going to call it: “This is What I Want You to Know…”, using what I have long-titled the Journal I’ve kept for my daughters since the day they were born.

The total time of the file is just over 13 minutes. Four minutes is of me reading from my book and the remainder is me giving you my POV on the ideas put forward in the reading. Going to see how things go with this and and I am open to hearing any suggestions you may have. Ultimate Warrior reading children’s stories for your kids sounds like a winner to me, how about you?

Anyway, take what I share with you to Mind, Body and Soul . Then use it today to kick your OWN ass.

Your Founding Father of Life Intensity,

Always Believe,

Warrior

 

Awesome Day June 23, 2011

Gym to Keep a Warrior Hungry….

Karma Collects In Toto

Hulk Hogan has told lies about me for almost 20 years now. Me telling the truths about Terry Bollea for about an hour is justified as far as I am concerned, and long overdue.

There are Eight Parts and a Bonus.

Enjoy. Thanks again, all you UW fans, for all the great memories.

A warning: there is some strong, adult language in these videos; not much, some. There ARE NOT streams of cuss words and there is NO language — NONE– that is sexually explicit, but there are a few choice F’bombs. Just letting you know in case you might decide to watch these clips in the presence of kids. My advice is to not do that.

Definitely…

The “Lowlights” reel…

Hello, warriors.

Here is a preview of the Full video soon to release. I have always been honest with you and will continue to be. As for why it will take till the 17th to have the Full video up, I have no idea. Those I am working with have picked that date. I will work to have it posted before then, as soon as possible.

They say, “Most people on the internet only have so much attention span. I say (after I laugh), “You worry about ‘most people’ if you want, but I’m ONLY going to focus on my warriors and feeding them the truths, no matter how long it takes. I know them. They have patience and know how to give attention. They chew on good meat until they get all the juice out of it.”

Typically producers release a “highlights” reel, basically giving all the best stuff up front to entice you to buy a ticket. I haven’t done that.

First, there will be no ticket you have to buy. This video is my gift to you, and the beginning of something big together.

Second, take my word for it. These are hard-hitting ”lowlights” compared to the ball-busting “highlights” within the Full video.

Movie night with Warriorman, what could be better than that?

Not even TNA PPVs provide quality entertainment like this, so the so-called experts claim:

“Right now, this feud between Hogan and the Warrior is better than any feud
that TNA has going on right now. In fact, this is the best feud Hogan has
had since 1998 and the NWO.”

041211 Weapon of Warrior Wisdom

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

People go to their graves without doing the things in their life they dreamed of. I know, nobody wants to hear about it. I do find it sadly funny, though, that every time I get to know someone well enough to end up in a discussion with them about their life, they sure as hell can’t do anything but talk about it. Talk about the fact that they are not doing in their lives and with their lives what they would really like to do, i.e, they ain’t doing their dreams. I think that sucks.

A whole life is a long time to go depriving your dreams. That’s one hell of a nasty payback to impose on the very things that have worked tirelessly to brighten your outlook on life when you found yourself down in the dumps and fluttered your heart when you believed no one else in the world cared.

You know what? It’s time to quit sucking. It’s time to give your dreams the journey they deserve.

That tiny voice inside of you that you hear? It is the truth trying to get your attention. When the rest of world is drowning it out, turn and tell it to shut the fuck up.

Let me tell you something.

Your soul won’t let you have it both ways. Either it lives a worthy life — or one of waste.

Don’t be one of the Soulwasters.

040511 Weapons of Warrior Wisdom

Hello warriors.

Here are today’s Weapons of Warrior Wisdom.

If you’ve been coming around for awhile, you know I’m a long-time admirer and reader of The Great Books of The Western World.  As part of the self-motivating library of Weapons I’ve created (story here), I’ve often created Weapons by simply writing out great passages of text (in longhand) that inspire me.

I use the same quality art paper and also add my Warrior logo or a small doodle of a book or something else. I also scribble these in a commonplace book I keep, a journal for quotes, thoughts and ideas, interesting knowledge — a record, of sorts, of living an “examined life.”

Anyway, found some of these while digging through that big stack of Weapons I’ve talked about. So, thought I would add Weapons that are part of what I will be calling: Weapons of The Great Book Series.

The Weapon of Warrior Wisdom images are linked to another page with more Weapons, a larger view, and more explanation.

The starting bid is $100. (Priority Mail Shipping is NOT included and will be additional.)

Bidding on these Weapon of Warrior Wisdom Art pieces will run till midnight, Thurs, April 7.

Ultimate Warrior Brush One

SOLD

It was 1992. A handful of weeks before Survivors Series and the emergence of The Ultimate Maniacs, Macho Man and Ultimate Warrior as a tag-team. As history shows, that emergence never happened. The true story of what actually took place is a great story.

This image, which I’ve painted with a brush (my first time using a brush as the tool on one of my Fine Art pieces instead of my customary knife ), was taken at a photo session in Phoenix just as this great Survivors Series story was beginning to unfold.

I’d been on the road for a few weeks and when I made it back to Phoenix (home at the time) the office had an all day photo shoot scheduled. Vince knew where to reach me. In this picture, I’d just gotten off the phone, waiting for the photographer to reset the lights for the next shots, and was sitting on a stage contemplating what Vince and I spoke of. One of the assistants, off to the side, snapped it without me knowing.

Vince’s problems with the feds were heating up and he was really beginning to sweat. He was plotting something that I knew was not just mischievous but malicious, and I also knew when the shit hit the fan there was only one ass he was interested in protecting. His own. In a fashion true to my Ultimate Warrior gimmick, he would sacrifice others.

A picture is worth a thousand words, the old saying goes. And this one, here, definitely is. Maybe a few thousand.

I’ve been working again on my book.

Been pulling out and putting together all the files and materials of work that I’ve done on and off for years. I’ve got some notebooks of writing that go back to the early ‘90’s and, of course, as I’ve said before, I’ve always kept journals. It’s time. Many things had to still play out before it was time for me tell my story. Now, they have.

Everybody in this business who had something to say (at least, for the sake of a quick buck, they thought so) has gone on the record, about themselves — and me and my career. Most of them talking smack and telling lies.

Now, its my turn to tell the truth.

I’ll keep you posted on things as they progress.

My art pursuits will continue alongside my work on the book.

This 9×12 art piece is available to anyone who may be interested. The image above is linked to a few more images of it. Send me a comment ( I will see it privately) or an email.

Ultimate Warrior Halloween Fans

Hello, warriors. I’ve been meaning to post these great pics since I received them but I got busy with other things.

Every single day I get awesome emails from fans all over the world telling me about what Ultimate Warrior meant to them when I was performing, and what the persona still means to them today and how he’s even influencing and inspiring new generations of Ultimate Warrior fans.

It’s incredible, really. I’ve got thousands of heartfelt emails — more like essays — expressing thoughts and feelings about it all that you just can’t read without getting emotional. It was a great and inspiring time for all of us. I’m proud of the impact and impression Ultimate Warrior and his One-of-a-Kind fans made, and am confident it will be going on for many more years and generations to come.

Thanks to Matthew, Scot, Drew (and his sister, Rosanne), and James.

Always Believing is easy with fans like all of you.

Ever Dream of Opening Your Own Gym?

IF YOU HAVE — NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!!

Back In January, I sat down and made a list of my goals for this year. One of them was to sell my Warrior’s Gym equipment I had in storage. One of the rotating banners here on the blog announces that sale.

It’s probably been 6 months since I originally posted the notice. Since that time a few contacts were made. Some about getting a couple pieces. Some about my offer to donate it. A couple serious inquires about the whole lot but once details and real ability were fleshed out, these did not came to fruition.

It’s nearing the end of the year and it’s time for me to fulfill THIS goal. I want to find a new home for this great load of commercial exercise equipment.

Further information in greater detail is here. Let me tell you a couple of things before you go there.

As the information will tell you, although the equipment is dated it was new when put into storage and the facility where it has been kept is climate controlled and most of the selectorized equipment is covered in industrial plastic wrap.

Based on the way I presented the information to announce sale of it, I have to tell you, I’m surprised that more people have not contacted me. This is really an opportunity of a lifetime.

I made it very clear I was looking to sell it all at a price that would be reasonable and fair and help the one who would put it to good use. You can search all day long at commercial equipment broker sites and see for yourself what kind of money they get for the same individual pieces. And you can go to gyms all day long and find out that they use these same pieces to outfit their clubs today. Date equipment was purchased does not matter — the condition of the equipment does.

I did provide a general figure of what the equipment was worth. The figure was conservative, I believed, and I asked anyone who could show I was wrong to let me know. I never proposed what I would actually take for it because I figured anyone with common sense could read between the lines of what I was saying and, with a little bit of research, figure out what would be a fair and reasonable offer to make. Perhaps, I was wrong.

On the chance that I was, let me get the ball rolling and throw out .30 cents on the dollar as a starting place.

Always Believe,

Warrior

A Man Does It ALL.

In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves… self-discipline with all of them came first.

— Harry S Truman

Hello, fellow warriors –

Digging around here in files buried in my computer’s basement. Rediscovering posts from the past. Vintage stuff that disappeared each time there was a redesign of the site. Must be 500 to 1,000 printed pages worth. Preparing to put most of it back online here at the blog.

I opened a classic, interesting file and it caused me to remember an email that got my attention. Now it’s time for me to have yours.

A guy asks:

“Warrior, I have two young kids around the same age as yours. Do you think that it is a normal development in a man’s life to have to give up so much of ourselves to give our kids the best lives possible that our own lives begin to fall into a rut from neglect of our own needs? Is the true measure of a man what he still does for himself or what he sacrifices for others?”

I really hate to see men conflicted about these things. It’s just not natural. A man should not be confused or wonder oddly about the most basic things that make for strong peace of mind and a stable life. A man is not supposed to be struggling with doubts and uncertainties inside himself.

If males paid more attention to their natural masculine instincts and thinking for themselves rather than today’s emasculated cultural role models and their sissified opinions and examples, they’d be able to settle their inner conflicts on their own. Like a man should be able.

It may be normal by today’s standards to entertain these kinds of ideas put forward in this inquiry, but it’s certainly NOT by traditional ones. Traditional standards are what I use and my life keeps turning out to be pretty damn solid and enjoyable, which gives me and my family a beautiful peace of mind. The simple, blunt, bold and no bs attitude of these is all I have to offer. If you want advice fit for today’s low standards, and evidence of its failures, follow Hulk Hogan on Twitter.

No, of course not, not for one damn second, in any whatsoever, is it normal for a father to think anything he does for his children is somehow a bothersome sacrifice or giving something up of himself or good enough reason to neglect his own needs and put himself and his life in a rut.

For a father to view the challenging choices he has before him as burdens instead of blessings, is to be devoted half-ass to performing his responsibilities as a provider.

And to believe you have to in some way compromise your duties as a man and father so that you can fulfill your own dreams and desires is weakness, pure and simple. Letting yourself go all to hell and your dreams rot is failure, pure and simple.

A father does it ALL — and he never once whines or complains about being blessed with the privilege and honor to do so. He doesn’t try to find a way out or around. He wakes each day and simply handles whatever it is that is going on in his life.

He meets the needs of his reality AND his dreams.

He gives up nothing — of his beliefs and aspirations (his DESTINY!) or of the day-to-day demands of providing the needs and security his family depends on him for.

He does not surrender squat when it comes to what truly matters. Working on his Destiny matters every bit as much as putting food on the table and clothes on his kids.

He doesn’t entertain any thought that it is impossible.

There are many true measures of a man.

One sure one is that a man gives all of himself to doing ALL of whatever he has before him in his life to do and he does it without sitting in his OWN pile of shit, pouting and asking himself, “Why me?”, or without trying to place the burden of doing it or blame for not getting it done on someone else, especially never his family.

Quit trying to find a way to escape or give yourself a break. Don’t be a V-man. Shut down the pansy-ass inner dialogue and suck it up and take full responsibility for the life you have created for yourself.

Listen to me. If you believe the only way you can ever go after your dreams is somehow escape the life you have now, that you created by your own damn choices, you are only setting yourself up for deeper resentment and regret. If you believe the only way to get the job done will be when there is no more day-to-day shit to shovel in your life, then you will be shoveling shit till the day you die.

One more thing. A father does not provide the best possible life for his kids by doing things in his life he finds no inspiration or enjoyment in just so he can make money to buy his kids things, whether they be toys, fashionable clothes, popular tech gadgetry, the biggest house on the block, etc.

One day — not long after the day you buy it — they will forget every single material thing you, whether for basic comfort or luxury, provided for them. But they will never forget the example you set and the energy and attitude that comes off of you.

Kids have powerful instincts. You don’t have to say anything about how you feel like your life is in a rut or that you regret giving up on your dreams or that you wish your life circumstances were different.  Without one word, they will be able to read you like a book and they will know.

If you are really concerned about providing your kids the best possible life, set an example for them that they will use to positively and inspirationally guide themselves throughout the whole of their lives.

Scrap your sacrificial, selfless, superficial and conventional ideas. Find the energy, stamina, self-confidence, self-belief, and courage to leave behind the things that have you ruining yourself and get out there and fulfill the unique greatness inside of you.

Always Believe,

Get up. Get out. Go tear something TODAY!

You know, it’s easy to have big balls when you are 20, 30 years of age. It’s another thing to have that big balls attitude, confidence, courage, audacity, assertiveness and aggressiveness into your 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90′s.

Based on a few hundred whining and complaining responses to my last post on insurance and my typical Warrior-stern emphasis on self-reliance, I have to wonder if some of you mens’ wives don’t often wonder if they are laying next to another woman at night instead of the man they believed they married. Take my advice: you want to impress (or try and get the sympathy of) someone hell bent on getting the most out of every day of their life, don’t write and tell them you were a real stud in high school and wore a letter jacket all weighted-down with pendants all three years of high school but you’ve let yourself go over the last 20 years and starting to feel and see the sorry-ass effects of having done so.

Today’s Labor Day. So how about subjecting yourself to some?! Get up off your ass, get outside…get out and give yourself a gut check. Maybe you’ll be fortunate enough to tear a muscle or two. These kinds of incredible, wonderful pains have a tendency to remind you that you are still alive. When you’ve had enough — which will be way, way before what your body and mind can actually handle — stand there, between your short, wheezy breaths and fear of heart attack, and ponder whether or not letting your physical self go all to hell all these years is really worth all the other comforts and securities you’ve acquired in your life.

If you say no, you stand a good chance at getting your big balls attitude back. If you say yes, you’re destined to live out the remainder of your days thinking, believing and acting tiny.

“Youth is not a time of life – it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of red cheeks, red lips and supple knees. It is a temper of the will; a quality of the imagination; a vigor of the emotions; it is a freshness of the deep springs of life. Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over a life of ease. This often exists in a man of fifty, more than in a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years; people grow old by deserting their ideals.”Samuel Ullman
