The Spirit of the Kaizen Warrior – Courage through the night

“To shine through the darkest nights is where the warrior forges his might, while others simply kneel before difficulty and flee the fight.”

When difficulties arise, the Kaizen Warrior sees opportunity for greatness;

When all seems lost, the Kaizen Warrior sees victory;

When the skies are dark and the night is sinister, the Kaizen Warrior is guided by the stars;

When everyone runs away something, the Kaizen Warrior runs towards it;

When it feels like all hope is lost, the Kaizen Warrior has faith nonetheless;

The Kaizen Warrior strengths are neither the speed of his sprint nor the might of his sword.

His true power lies in his faithful and ever-present courage to continue on his journey, knowing that it is a just one, and that he endeavours with the power of the universal, and no matter what happens, he cannot be defeated, for his defeats are his ultimate victories, just as the Phoenix, this is when he rises above his ashes stronger than before.

He lives every moment as if all life existed in each breath.

And he flees not from fear, he basks in it, because he knows that fear is just the border separating the “now” from the “possible”. He crosses the border knowing that he will find a whole new life and a new land on the other side.

He knows that he dies every second, just like a flower; therefore he cannot be defeated, for you cannot kill that which is already dying.

One might proclaim that the Kaizen Warrior is dying to live, and living as if he is dying.

A personal development companion?
A personal development companion is similar to a “life coach” but is also quite different. A person such as myself does not direct or coach the development of his client, rather he learns about him or her by listening and truly learning about who he or she is. The PDC will then share what he has learned from his own experiences and pass on the wisdom he has gained, allowing the client to forge his own path rather than follow the PDC’s “truth”. This may seem like a small nuance but the results are astounding. Just as we need a mirror to see our own face, the personal development companion serves as a mirror that reflects the deep self of the client and who he or she can be. This PDC-Client relationship is a non hierarchical one where dominance and superiority are non existant, therefore this very natural flowing method of guiding allows the room and freedom for open-mindedness and humility which in turns increases the chances of the client discovering his path of happiness and success.

 If you are interested in my services, whether it in the form of personal development companion, conferences, or retreats, please go to Services page of this website and I will be more than happy to share whatever I can with you.

What is leadership 2.0?
We, as human beings, all have the capability of being leaders. Leadership is an intrinsic quality that resides within everyone and is simply waiting to be expressed and shared. You certainly do not need a title in order to be a leader since leadership power is not attributed by external sources, rather it is fueled by an inner vision and mission of a better self. Furthermore, leadership is when one expresses and shares the best of themselves in service of others therefore positively impacting the world around them. “Give a fish to a man and he will be fed for a day, teach a man how to fish and he will be fed for a lifetime, teach a man how to teach others to fish and he will feed a whole community”. A leader is therefore someone who creates other leaders just as autonomous as himself and who then perpetuates this leadership cycle.

To learn more about Leadership 2.0, please visit the website of the International Society of Exceptional Leaders, a network of people from all kinds of  professions and from all over the world who lead a life of leadership.
