Warrior - This is a term I see kicked around by many people, mostly out of ego. I fight in MMA so I am a warrior. Well no, you are a fighter. A warriors is not something someone becomes, it is something they are. There is nothing wrong with not being a warrior. It is in fact a simpler life if you are not.
A warrior is someone who never follows the status quo or does something because others think it is right. They are confrontational in nature, but violent only when necessary. Death is not feared but embraced a part of life. They follow the rules only when they don't conflict with their own core beliefs. They are uncomfortable in their comfort zone and thus strive for the change that is inevitable. People either love or hate them, both are accepted. They live a moral life, but their morals not someone else's. They live life on purpose and die with purpose. They don't seek greatness but greatness tends to find them.
They embrace life and the change that life is.
They are truly alive.
