Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Overcoming ones Limits

Once I was aware the only thing that held me back was my doubts I was able to tackle my fears and accomplish what others said could not be accomplished.

Yes it is me. and Yes there are some ropes dangling there from when my friend used them, those are not attached to me. Personnaly I have met too many people who relied on ropes and were injured when the rope broke. Three of those I met are paraplegics. Climbing ropes are only good for 10-15 falls. But most people use them beyond that. Also a delima is whats considered a fall. This is where the grey line clouds the judgments. The security blanket becmomes the noose, and trusting in what we can not control becomes dangerous.

Climbing without ropes is a rush. You must constantly be aware of what you are thinking (Like the little red train, either you think you can, or you know you can.) and at times you must tell yourself not to think too much. Many times I would get very high up on other rock faces 5.7s maybe as high as 200 feet. But the moment you feel doubt you must stop and position yourself where you felt secure. There you must rest and take a minute to gather your thoughts. You must at times rethink your position. First thought is, “is there a safer route I will feel more comfortable with?” If no safer, or easier route can be found “do I turn back or do I wait and gather my thoughts more.” This is when knowing your limits are important. To push back the edge of the envelope is a rush, but it is knowing how far you can push the envelope that makes the journey succeed.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
