Alternative Education Should Breed Strength
The concepts of willpower, strength, mental toughness, and discipline are neglected in today’s education policy.
Children are not taught the value of developing fortitude. What is the result? Our society is crippled by poorly educated individuals who are not able to identify and step into their real potential unless going to great lengths to educate themselves, overcome limiting beliefs, and rewire their brain for success. Therein lies the problem: some sort of rewiring is necessary. Why is this the case? Our current education policy does not teach mental toughness or resiliency in any regard.
On this episode of Beyond Homo Sapien, I talk to legendary strength coach Zach Even-Esh. Zach is a coach who focuses primarily on training wrestlers at the high school and college level. Zach specializes in instilling these young kids with discipline, integrity, and a strong mind to match a strong body. Before becoming a full-time strength coach for athletes, Zach was a teacher in the public school system in New Jersey.
On this show, talk about the importance of developing strength in our schools. As we go about changing education paradigms, it will be essential that we find ways to install a strong mind into the youngest members of society. In order for our species to evolve and progress to the next level of possibility, creation of amazing programs to teach discipline, strong mindset, and integrity through athletes will be of prime importance.
Changing education paradigms relies on you and me to take responsibility for the world around us. Failing to execute this mission is a failure for generations that will come after. If we install alternative education systems that teach a strong and disciplined mindset, our posterity will be able to adapt to any changes that might come their way. As the education policy stands, there is complete failure to educate students in this most crucial of disciplines.
