Monday Mindset 001 - Sheepdog, Are You Prepared For Being Unprepared

Welcome to week 1 of our new weekly series Monday Mindset, let’s get to it.

I wanted to talk to you about training. Now, there’s training and there’s “training”. Most guys I know just head down to the range and take a few shots once or twice a week and call that training.

Let’s face it, when you’re face-to-face with someone who’s armed and ready to take your life, that kind of training will serve ZERO purpose.

We’ve talked a lot about the flashy stuff, the guns, the drills and tactics. Today, let’s go through the mindset, cause that’s where it makes all the difference in the end.

Watch the video and we’ll talk.

Don’t forget to comment below to let me know your thoughts. I read every comment and it really helps me know what to post in the weeks coming.

  1. Sadly, the American Male is on the Endangered Species list. He has been taking his lessons from the liberal left and no longer opens doors for ladies (its offensive) and analyzes any force on force situation as "what did I do to deserve this." Okay, maybe not the real men, but there are a lot people out there with both X and Y chromosomes that have not yet figured out how to go about being a man. I've seen grown men (okay, people who grew to their full height but never developed mentally) pale at the sight of my concealed firearm. You are absolutely right about mental practice and mental mindset. Training needs to simulate real life, and it must force you to confront situations where you are not prepared. Marksmanship is important, but the willingness to pull the trigger is just as important. The ability to improvise and overcome are principles taught to us in the army, and that we carry with us the rest of our life. As a fellow former 91B, I salute your presentations. I will order Colonel Cooper's book.
