"Standing up means voluntary excepting the burden of being. Your nervous system responds in an entirely different minor when you face the demands of life voluntarily. You respond to a challenge instead of bracing for a catastrophe. You see the goal of the dragon hordes instead of shrinking in terror from the all too real fact of the dragon, you step forward to take you place in the dominance hierarchy and occupy your territory manifesting your willingness to defend expand and transform it. To stand up straight with your shoulders back is to accept the terrible responsibility of life with eyes wide open"
Sheepdogs must be aggressive and face our adversaries and fears. Life is a frame of mind. Set your mind to attack what threatens you, mentally, physically, emotionally. Never be submissive to a threat or fear.
Jocko Willink and Jordan Peterson are two totally different types of Sheepdogs. Jordan Peter is mentally aggressive towards threats to him and others and Jocko Willink has been one of the most physically aggressive humans on the planet while in military service and his current physical training. They both attack their aggressors in similar manors. They do not show intimidation and back down. They always combat their advisories head on with mental strength and aggression when aggression is show towards them. Sheepdogs must not back down. We must always stand for what is right because it's right and face mental and physical threats fearlessly.
