  1. The Shogun's Journey: What is Dead May Never Die

    You're preaching to the choir. My father is a NLP therapist, I was practically RAISED on NLP. Thank you for being here, man!
  2. The Shogun's Journey: What is Dead May Never Die

    Goal 1: Rising Harder and Stronger Stronglifts Thursday Morning session Squat 5x5 85lbs Bench 5x5 100lbs Row 5x5 100lbs Goal 2: Trust the Maesters' Advice. Went to my therapist session, today. I felt good talking about all that's been haunting me but I still have a long way to go. Goal 3: I demand Trial by combat. No classes today. Goal 4: You're the Lord Commander of The Night's Watch... So, Command. Participating in Mini-Challenge 3 actively. Not reading and commenting much thanks to work.
  3. Some of you, among the stoic aficionados, saw this coming. ‘But neither a bull nor a noble-spirited man comes to be what he is all at once; he must undertake hard winter training, and prepare himself, and not propel himself rashly into what is not appropriate to him’ Following Epictetus' Advice, we are going to deliberately put ourselves through uncomfortable situations during this week. This week we train ourselves to don't hold onto comfort. Some Voluntary Discomfort suggestions are: Cold Showers (for those of us who are currently not freezing) Exercising in the morning Walking in the cold without a jumper (again, if you're in Winterfell, take care of yourself) Fasting for a day Sleeping on the floor Skipping Coffee What you choose is up to you and your very own particular lifestyle. But these little temporary adjustments will change your perspective on comfort. Once we defeat the need for comfort, our challenges will become much easier. Setting your challenge goals and sticking to them will be far easier. When others complain about being uncomfortable, you won’t be able to relate. This is a very Monk thing do, isn't it? Why? Because Winter is Coming. You want to have to mental and physical fortitude to weather the blizzard.
  4. The Shogun's Journey: What is Dead May Never Die

    Goal 1: Rising Harder and Stronger Stronglifts Monday Morning session Squat 5/5/5/5/6 85LB (didn't know failure was part of the game and did 6) OH Press 5x5 50lb Deadlift 1x5 105lb Goal 2: Trust the Maesters' Advice. I'll change this goal to reach out to one of my friends, every day. They're the Order of Councilors I trust the most. I started with my best friend. Goal 3: I demand Trial by combat. No classes today. Goal 4: You're the Lord Commander of The Night's Watch... So, Command. Mini-Challenge 3 Posted.

  6. The Shogun's Journey: What is Dead May Never Die

    Goal 1: Rising Harder and Stronger Stronglifts Saturday morning session Squat 5X5 80LB Barbell Row 5x5 95lb Bench Press 5x5 95lb I might stay here for a while, I had trouble keeping form with the Bench Press and the Barbell Row. Goal 2: Trust the Maesters' Advice. Still without an idea of how to change this goal. Goal 3: I demand Trial by combat. Classes were suspended due to mayors elections. Goal 4: You're the Lord Commander of The Night's Watch... So, Command. Gettin' ready to post mini-challenge 3.
  7. But rises again harder and stronger. This is my first GOT themed challenge! I'm at a low point of my life. I just got fired, which means I have to go back to the job I recently quit (if they'll take me back). Also, I'm running out of ways to deal with my anxiety, going out with someone new (which increases such anxiety) and with a lot of things in the air. I'll be focusing on respawning, and rising harder and stronger than ever. Goal 1: Rising Harder and Stronger I recently made an investment in myself. I signed up for a new gym, an expensive one, but near my house and with everything I need to get stronger. My goal here is simply to go there at least 3 times a week and get stronger. I was tempted to change again to the warriors but that would clash with another of my goals. Goal 2: Trust the Maesters' Advice. I'm running out of tools to deal with.... everything. So my second goal is to seek professional help. That means therapy and nutritional help. Since this sounds very simple, I guess it'd evolve over time: attending therapy sessions, following the nutritionist advice and sticking to a meal plan. Goal 3: I demand Trial by combat. I've been neglecting my training lately. What are our guild words? We are Monks. We're not lifters, we're not runners. We do not plow the fields or toil in the mines. We fight for what is ours. My goal is simple: Do not skip any training session. Goal 4: You're the Lord Commander of The Night's Watch... So, Command. I've been neglecting the guild for a long time. My goal is to be here, stay here, lead from the front and provide a mini-quest for the guild each week. (Brace yourselves) I can't promise I'll be every day in every thread (that's for The Three-Eyed Raven @Kishi) but I'll be focusing on embracing my leadership qualities and lead with confidence and example and stay here and fight with my brothers.
