Give Yourself Emotional Lessons

We want to be “free” 
But still long for structure
This is why the Spartan Agoge draws fascination
It’s akin to forging a sword from raw steel
We grow and are transformed from hardship
This transformation comes from emotional lessons
These are ones that don’t come from the mind but the subconscious

If a young Spartan dropped his shield
He was not simply told do not do it again
But made to go extreme hardship to not do it again
These are the deepest lessons
Lessons often given to us by nature
But you can prepare by inoculating yourself with your own trials
