There was a wrestling camp I went to when I was younger and Mark Schultz, brother of one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, Dave Schultz, was there talking about mindset when you were in the bottom position. Dave was very elegant and relaxed when he spoke. Mark was the opposite: very aggressive, raw, almost angry. But even with this, I loved the message he had: "don't let them have your GOLD!" He was meaning that when the opponent was on top of you he needs to work hands and legs inside around your body. But you NEED to keep him out. You need to fight against him from getting anywhere near your important stuff, or in this situation, where you would be vulnerable. The fact is that you need to be thinking this all the time. There are things in your life that are important to you. They may be items, time, family, your car, your memories, your special gifts. But it's also your self-respect, your honor, your pride, self-worth, etc. They are important to you and they are yours. These things are your GOLD and you can't let ANYONE have your GOLD. You need to do EVERYTHING you can to protect your gold from other people taking it, tarnishing it, devaluing it, ruining it, or stealing it from you. A very important tactic is to be aware that many people around you will ALWAYS try to take it. Not because they are bad people, but because there are so many that will try to tear you do to lift themselves up. Its a much easier tactic that actually accepting responsibility for the things they are doing. This doesn't mean you need to go around "mean-mugging" everyone. It just means that you have to have to be aware of the world around you and be ready to take action to protect yourself the second you sense it. The first and easiest step is to not give someone power over you by allowing yourself to care what they say about you. You are doing the things you need to do in YOUR world. The next thing is to disengage from it. If they are talking shit, just turn your back to the words. Walk away. Know that their words are just the reflection of THEIR own life. If they are doing something, then change the landscape if you need to. But don't let whatever they do take those special things from you. It's your GOLD and it is VERY precious!:)
