Here I am again with another word describing Warrior that I seemed to avoid. Guess I overlooked intensity as more stories seemed to surface. It’s laughable really just like with the word energy that got overlooked a while back. 😂A phrase of Warrior’s was “Intensity for Life!” and he used “Injections of Inspiration” in some videos. I decided to combine both for this title today. Another unplanned moment is the photo I am using. Was all set to use a certain one but then that one seemed to be everywhere. I’d watch some clips on the “Ultimate Collection” DVD and there it was in the crowd on someone’s poster, pillow, or banner. I also saw it posted on one of the fb U.W. groups so decided, why not? I have many to choose from and this photo was following me in a way.
How about all of you? Do you have injections of intensity everyday? Probably not like Warrior but we all have our own moments. It involves strength, force, energy, and feeling which that man above had with all those. Yours will not equate another like I always have said many times before. Just make sure you give all you can and do it in the best way. You can be intense where it doesn’t have to be a crazy attitude or way of life.
Maybe your intensity is more subtle like mine sometimes. I get that way with my writing when I just have to share something. ✍🏻Good thing none of you are around when those ideas come to me as some get pretty intense! It’s not just with your physical strength or doing an action similar. You can probably think of other things you may do in an intense way that some may not. We just always associate that word with fitness or maybe an intellectual idea of some kind. How about looking at it differently?
Injections of intensity can involve your job, parenting, or any activity which requires you to give it your best effort. It’s also the flip side of that though. For me, it’s the emotions. You all know my feelings on that topic by now. Think about ( if you are a fan or remember) the Ultimate Warrior winning those big titles or even other exciting matches. I know my emotions were filled with that intensity back then. The reverse was true when hearing about Warrior’s passing. That was another injection of intensity for a long time just in an entirely different fashion and experience all together. We have highs and we have lows. All are about being or becoming intense for that present moment. You will know how far your emotional intensity goes by how something affects you.
We all have had an intense almost two years with this global pandemic so that definitely affects us in many areas of our lives. Lots of people will deal with their own level of intensity concerning big events but little ones matter too. Warrior attacked intensity throughout his entire life even as an introverted youngster. It may not have shown up externally until many years in but on the inside, it was there just waiting for him. He took a small idea of just working out some in his high school weight room into becoming quite the intense character professionally later on. He was also injected with that intensity as a Dad. The disciplines, lessons, family creed, and values he wanted instilled in his girls became their lifeblood of intensity.
I decided to get out the book “A Life Lived Forever” to see what some Superstars had to say about the Ultimate Warrior. Of course I know many comments with having the book all these years. What I was looking for was how many times the word intense or intensity was mentioned. I only looked at some parts so am sure it’s throughout the whole thing but here are a few. Dana and Steve Wilton used it, Kofi Kingston did as well regarding Warrior’s legacy but Batista used it NINE times! He talked about U.W.’s ring entrance and his lasting influence. It is quite the word, isn’t it?
Maybe that’s why I avoided it all this time. Yes, the Ultimate Warrior and Warrior had injections of intensity but I always wanted to see beyond that and I have. Another character actually more intense was “Macho Man” Randy Savage. I’ve done lots of posts on those two but in my opinion, what Randy started with intensity- Warrior continued. Nobody of their generation topped both of them on that level. That’s just my take but am sure many will agree. When I think of either, that word for sure is part of them. I never wanted to say what everyone else says because it’s all the same. For me, I hear- been there, done that so I needed to go beyond the word of intensity just a bit more. Guess I have with these five years of writings…
So, warriors- how do you inject intensity into your life and do you keep it going? That part of the question is hardest to answer. Remember though to be yourself in all this great life. You can use Warrior’s intense methods to motivate you but honestly, do it YOUR way as he would want. Intensity for life? Always but believe in your own spirit that pushes you toward that injection. The Ultimate one would want nothing less from you as your OWN warrior self.
P.S. I had remembered a quote I saved on being a Virgo and it applies here. I have talked about those birth signs but here it is:
~”People perceive them as calm and collected, but inside their mind they are a nervous ball of uncontrolled intensity.”
Oh yes, so true!!! And, when I checked the date of the pic above, I took it on my birthday! Virgo again… ♍️💖
