WARRIOR ROLE MODEL

Activate the Warrior to COMMAND RESPECT

 “Warrior is the basic building blocks of masculine psychology, rooted in our genes. A warrior knows what he wants, and he knows how to get it. A sense of danger energises the man to take decisive action, to engage life, never withdraws from it. His actions become second nature.”

– from the book: King, Warrior, Magician, Lover by Moore and Gillette

Who is a Warrior?

Warriors are the people who work hard to achieve their goals, protect their boundaries, and fight for values such as justice and freedom. These are our soldiers, first responders, politicians, reporters, lawyers, businessmen, advocates, elite sportsmen, and hard-working men. Masculine traits which confirm and boost the Warrior are strength, courage, goal-orientation, assertiveness, action and risk-taking.

Each time you take on a challenge, you activate your Warrior.

The Warrior is the most obvious masculine role in a relationship. Evolution has shaped the kind of traits in men that are most needed for the mission of raising a family—protecting and providing. Research confirms that women in all cultures tend to seek the same kind of Warrior qualities in a potential partner: strength, confidence, status, assertiveness, and ambition.
