Passing the Sword

The Japanese Sword: A Symbol of the Modern-Day Warrior

The finest definition I’ve read for the word ‘warrior’ is “one who conquers oneself.” In other words, a warrior is a master at handling
life’s problems and overcoming any obstacle.

Warriors don’t let fear, in whatever shape or form, stop them. A warrior is completely unstoppable. They have an overwhelming commitment to their own personal growth and, more importantly, a commitment to adding value to society. This is a powerful mindset towards a higher sense of self that leads to a greater strength of character, attitude, and a more prosperous world around us...
