The True Warrior: Words by Don Juan

The self-confidence of a warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to himself. You’re after the self-confidence of the average man, when you should be after the humbleness of a warrior. The difference between the two is remarkable. Self-confidence entails knowing something for sure; humbleness entails being impeccable in one’s actions and feelings.

    That is a great quote. I’ve not yet read that book, but I will put in on my list. I am also inspired by your work. I am African and Native American and have some training and studying about Native health, healing and community and I am looking to finally find a way to help communities. I’ll be searching for more on your work. Thanks for sharing this useful quote.
