Now for the first time, he is sharing his secrets for a stronger mind, more stable emotions, and healthier body with the rest of the world.
Few people are familiar with what it takes for a working dog to perform under pressure. What makes a dog so driven to please its handler that it is willing to obey a command even while being shot? How many of us would continue running toward someone who was shooting at us? What makes a working dog different than us?
What makes working dogs different is they have real confidence that has been built from the ground up using advanced self-control training methods. The grit and tenacity that come with obeying a command under pressure are a result of establishing self-control and building true confidence. This is not false confidence built from ego and bravado, this is real confidence that comes from actually accomplishing something in life.
“An insecure dog barks but a confident dog bites. In the same way a weak person talks about doing things and a strong person just does them. Let your bite be worse than your bark.”
