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 in my stomach work is out 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.

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.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

I got busy and set aside Classic Great Book reading for a while. Big mistake. Never again.

There is nothing like them to inspire. Nothing. All the contemporary stuff is worthless in comparison.

Throw your TV out. Cancel subscriptions to your other media. Take your life back. Find the Great Books and dig in. Read something that enlightens and empowers you.

Weapon of Warrior Wisdom PRINTS…

JackLondonOne_Frame

 

Due to demand, beginning September 12, 2011, all Weapons of Warrior Wisdom are available as 6×9 prints.

Prints are on Professional Fine Art paper and a High-Quality Fine Art printer is used. You may have your choice between Matte or Gloss Paper.

The cost is $60 plus shipping ($6 for USA and $12 for International).

If you would like your print framed and matted, it is an additional $25 for the frame and shipping increases $10, respectively ($16 for USA and $22 for International).

All prints are signed and dated on the back.

For Buyer’s information: Final bids on auctioned Weapons are NOT $100. Bidding begins at $100 but the average Final Bid is 3-4 times the $100 starting bid. I let the bidding run its course. People pay what they want.

I take commissions for custom Weapons, yes.

The price for custom, commissioned Weapons is now $250 plus Priority Mail shipping ($20 if you live in the US or $45 if you live International).

You can choose a design that I’ve already done or you can mix and match images and quotes. I do not replicate the pieces exactly. That is, I do NOT copy them. I start from scratch and redraw/rewrite so that you get a “true” original. I put your name (to prove you commissioned it) and the date on each (new) original, recorded on the rear of the black mat paper.

As a BONUS, each custom commissioned Weapon comes with a phone call from Yours Truly. Ask Warriorman what you’d like know about what you might do to end up doing THE WORK of YOUR OWN dreams.

I accept payments via Cashier’s Check, Google Checkout or Western Union. I no longer use paypal. (If you ordered through paypal, no worries, your order will still be delivered.)

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

Don’t hang out with Half-Assers and depressing people. Remove their presence from your life. And if they won’t go, remove yourself. Leave them to sit alone in their OWN pile of sour-attitude doom and gloom. Be DONE with them.

What, you think this is just a joke that you have this incredible gift of life, that you are here simply to piss it away hanging out with indolent, undisiciplined, indecisive compromisers who do everything in moderation?

Fuck that. Kick your OWN ass. Be your OWN hero. RULE.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom, today.

Todays and Tomorrows make up the years of your life.

What the fuck you are doing or not doing with them?

One day, your todays will run out of potential tomorrows.

Your life bank will be broke and no matter how great the worth of your good-merit badge is, you’re going to be SOL.

The Lender of Time allows only one loan.

And when He calls the note, there is no further negotiating.

“we anticipate the future as too slow in coming…or we recall the past, to stop its too rapid flight… For the present is generally painful to us… Let each one examine his thoughts, and he will find them all occupied with the past and the future… The past and present are our means; the future alone is our end. So we never live, but we hope to live; and, as we are always preparing to be happy, it is inevitable we should never be so.” Pascal

Hello warriors.

Here are today’s Weapons of Warrior Wisdom.

Seal Team Six and ALL our military warriors — human beings to be inspired by! Too bad those charged with operating our government don’t have the character, discipline and fortitude these individuals do.

I’d done this George Orwell Weapon a long time ago and remembered it was in my pile. His quote states the simple fact of the matter, and due to the recent inspiring event I thought it was fitting to add the Seal Team Six emblem, considering also that Orwell so brilliantly, in 1984 and Animal Farm (two GREAT books!), foretold us of the “Doublespeak” we now get from every single spineless and mealy-mouthed politician/leader in our government today.

012711 Weapons of Warrior Wisdom

Hello warriors.

Here are today’s Weapons of Warrior Wisdom.

It is easy to be misunderstood. It can sometimes really suck when you are. Skin takes time to thicken. And the discipline it takes to develop and then live your life by a Fuck What Others Think attitude is no cakewalk. Most of those who admire and respect you for it keep it to themselves for fear of wrecking their conventional, never-rock-the-boat, missionary-position-only lives.

Your jaw would hit the floor if I revealed the identity of the corporate and mainstream bigwigs and hotshots who write me in secrecy, privately cheering Warriorman on, sweating and panting at the thought of just once having the balls to tell the ones they work with, and even the ones they have to live with, that they don’t give a fuck what they think.

So, yeah, the loneliness and ostracization that comes along with firing both barrels and often being misunderstood can suck, sometimes. But let me tell you, it can suck a hell of a lot worse, and be far more damaging to your life, if you misunderstand yourself and never grasp who, what and why you truly are. Sacrificing the real you to live a life built on lies is one hell of a price to pay just to make sure you make nice and don’t offend others with the truth.

Nineteen years ago this month I opened a gym. (I’m reminded of it because I just returned from bringing a bunch of that equipment home and outfitting a WARRIOR gym in a great old barn next to my studio.) During the remodeling way back then, I created the now familiar quote, “You must show no mercy…nor have any belief whatsoever in how others judge you…for your greatness will silence them all,” and had it painted on a wall in 15″ letters across the top of a Warrior Logo that had a wingspan of 6 ft by 6 ft. Just off the lower right wingtip, I wrote, Always Believe, Warrior, another 20-year-running signature trademark of mine.

This Show no mercy… quote has been often misunderstood. I want you to understand it. It’s important that you do. Not for my benefit, for yours.

“Your greatness,” this greatness of yours that has the power to silence others, is NOT something you build or create or manufacture externally, outside of yourself. This is not what this quote ever meant. I was never saying, using the quote, that MY Greatness is my Ultimate Warrior career in sport entertainment — and THAT is what silences others. This kind of greatness is shit compared to the kind that really matters.

What I want you to realize, what you absolutely must realize to make the MOST of your life, is that the power to silence the envious and jealous, the naysayers and critics who judge you as less worthy, less valuable and less great than you truly are doesn’t come from building anything in the hope they will see it as greatness and finally shut up with their judgments. The ONLY greatness that has the power to silence them is the greatness you were born with and exist within you right now. You already possess the greatness that gives you the power.

You engage it by believing in it and the God-gifted obligation you have to stay true to it.

The only voice that matters is yours, the one within.

Pay heed to YOUR GREATNESS. Hear IT. Lean on IT. Depend on IT. Love IT.

And fuck the voices of everyone else.

Hello warriors.

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

I’m Old School. No secret about this. No, smart-asses, I did not say OLD or Old-Fashion — I said OLD SCHOOL. As in, I like what works, not what complicates and confuses.

I took up weight training back in the 70′s. This was back when coaches thought it would ruin an athlete’s speed, skill and coordination. In my freshman year at Indiana State University they offered a weightlifting PE class. It was taught by Mr. Jones, a guy in his early 70′s, who all the other coaches thought was nuts. Athletes on scholarships couldn’t be seen even talking to the guy without risking the chance they would lose their meal tickets.

To look at him, you wouldn’t think he knew anything about getting in shape or training with weights. Of course, this was way back before nutrition was wed to science and many of the Midwest teachers spent more time on tractors running their farms than inside a classroom. Plenty of good country, homestyle cooking and eating goes along with being raised on a farm, and this guy was too much a man of his own to be interested in impressing anyone with his appearance. He was a farmer and didn’t mind looking the part. But boy, was he strong — like a fricking ox!

Old School “weightlifting” was what he taught and I am glad I had the good fortune to learn it. It still holds my interest and serves me well after over 40 years of weightlifting/bodybuilding/physical fitness. (Simple idea: to get stronger and bigger grab something heavy and lift and move the crap out of it until it becomes easier then find something heavier and repeat as necessary.)

I even have an extensive collection of magazines and articles of interest I acquired way back then. Digging back into them for gold nuggets of knowledge is always inspiring. And the added benefit is, it is not only knowledge about how to have success with weight training but how to have success at life; notably, how to be a man and fulfill your potential as a human being. Translation: Don’t be a pussy.

Arthur Saxon was one of the all-time classic strongmen. His life story and writings have inspired me to create several Weapons of Warrior Wisdom over the years.

Here’s one:

Here is today’s Weapon of Warrior Wisdom.

It was no coincidence that Ultimate Warrior was the persona I created and performed.

Your persona is no coincidence either. Don’t hide its greatness from the World. Reveal who you truly are.

Persona is, after all, Latin for “the psyche behind the mask, the soul behind the exterior of one’s character as one presents it to the world, masking one’s inner thoughts, feelings.”
