Meet the charge with your presence
I couldn’t imagine what if would feel like to face a charging lion. Boyd Varty has had plenty of experience with this in the wild. He is a lion tracker and author of “The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Life.”
On his podcast, he told Aubrey Marcus that when you are facing a charging lion, you must stand, step forward, and meet the charge with your presence. A charging lion came so close to Varty, that when he screeched to a halt, the sand flew into Varty’s mouth.
“The lion must perceive you as dangerous and not one to be f’d with.”
When damaging situations arise in your life-whether it be laid off, fired, demoted, divorced, bankruptcy-or when something blindsides you, you must stand, step forward, and meet the charge with your presence.
Running from a lion or your problems won’t help you and as scary and uncertain as things may be, stand, step forward, and meet the charge with your presence.
Although you don’t fully grasp it, you have tremendous presence about you so when situations are roaring at you, you let it know, “I’m not the one to be f’d with.”
Never settle, keep selling your way through life no matter what.
