Overcoming Challenges In The Military Training

Personal courage is ability to control your fear in a dangerous or difficult situation and to be brave and confident enough to what you believe in. It enables one to breach the boundaries of our comfort zones.

One learns how to overcome various challenges that life presents us with. Military training is tough and challenging; it needs personal courage to overcome its challenges in order to complete the course. The solo nights we experiencedat the Kenya School of Adventure and Leadership (KESAL), the mountain rocks and cliffs that we up sailed at Mt. Kenya; all the activities required personal courage and high mental endurance. In that period we only sleep for two hours each day and the hours of visibility are filled with tough physical exercise. This could make one consider abandoning the training resulting to their dismissal. The experiences I encountered during basic military had the ability to make one pessimistic about the training. I encouraged myself to overcome the challenges and demands that the training exposed me to. All the previous intake before our intake had experienced the culture shock, passed and made it; I could not become an outlier! This was my driving force. I pray daily to ALLAH (S.W) to give me courage to overcome the hardships of training. One of the stresses of training is the lack of sleep and the vigorous exercise; both day and night. For me, what has beginning must have an end. The time will come when I will complete this course. To avoid punishments and maintain my discipline in training, I follow instructions and complete tasks given to me by the instructors and cadets in appointment. To pursue military training needs initiative. The little time available must be utilized effectively for personal preparation in readiness for the next task.

Courage can be physical or moral. Physical courage represents how we are on the outside which invert into the body whereas moral courage represents how we are on the outside which emanates out. It is through physical and moral courage I am able to overcome challenges of training to the point today. Discipline is paramount in military; attained by adhering to rules and regulations in the Standing Orders which are according to the Act of Kenya Defense Forces. I am able to fit in the KMA 07 fraternity. The more you understand who you are, the more powerful life you are able to live. According to Walt Disney, “All our dreams can come true, if we have courage to pursue them.”
