Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nicholas Vujicic . Without any medical explanation or warning, Nick was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.

“Your life is your life. Don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission. Be on the watch. There are ways out. There is light somewhere. It may not be much light but it beats the darkness. Be on the watch. The gods will offer you chances. Know them. Take them. You can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes. And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. Your life is your life. Know it while you have it. You are marvelous. The gods wait to delight in you.”

Charles Bukowski

“A man must know his destiny… if he does not recognize it, then he is lost. By this I mean, once, twice, or at the very most, three times, fate will reach out and tap a man on the shoulder… if he has the imagination, he will turn around and fate will point out to him what fork in the road he should take, if he has the guts, he will take it.”

― George S. Patton Jr.

“I sit and look at myself and wonder how I let it get this far. At what point do you say enough is enough?

Most people say ‘just stop eating’ or think that obese people are just lazy.

It’s not that simple.

It’s a condition and mind frame that you fall into from years of thinking you are not worthy.

It’s so much more than just food. 

My journey to lose 200 lbs has begun. No fad diets, no miracle drinks. Just me vs. my body and mind. I got this. For my family. Finally for once in my life, for me.”

It’s shocking to me that people are willing to get into fights and not know how to fight. I’ve been training and fighting my whole life and I am terrified to get into fights. I just can’t imagine putting myself into that situation with no skill at all.

The fear of getting punched in the face can severely limit your ability to defend yourself and your loved ones. Imagine walking outside and bumping into some idiot who doesn’t know to step out of your path. He pushes you back and shouts, “Stay out of my way!” No matter what you do, this aggressive psycho has already decided to get revenge for imagined disrespect. Suddenly, he swings a wild haymaker at your jaw. What do you do?

If it’s your first time reacting to a punch, your instinct might be to flinch, close your eyes, or turn your back to protect your face, but this puts you in even more danger as you don’t know exactly where the aggressive psycho is.

To overcome the fear, accept the possibility that you could get hit. Otherwise, fear takes over and forces you to make poor decisions that could actually put you in more danger. Accepting some pain from a jab to the face is a small price to pay for maintaining the awareness you need to handle the situation or escape. If you want to get over this fear then you have to risk getting hit.

Here are 4 ways to train yourself to overcome the fear of getting punched:

1. Have Someone Throw Stuff At You

Have someone throw objects at you that won’t hurt on impact, preferably something soft. Pay attention to your reactions. Do you flinch more than necessary? Do you close your eyes? Are you trying to protect yourself from something that can’t even hurt you? This is a simple method that helps you understand your own flinch reaction and begin to decide when it’s appropriate to flinch or not.
