Who is Your Enemy?

1There are times when we encounter enemies. They are people we don’t look for, but come into our lives to prevent us from being successful. How do you deal with them? Do you confront them or just avoid them? The “Spiritual Art of War” will teach you how to deal with your enemies and guide you in being successful in life.

You do not want an enraged enemy. Sun Tzu says, “Now in order to kill the enemy, our men must be roused to anger”. Therefore, the “angrier” you are and the calmer your enemy is, the better. Anger fuels energy and directs purpose. It supplies you with the motivation to achieve victory and prolongs your endurance.

Care should be taken, however, to let the anger be carefully directed and focused, for as Sun Tzu says, “The general, unable to control his irritation, will launch his men to the assault like swarming ants, with the result that one-third of his men are slain”. An enraged warrior can also be an error-prone warrior, so if your opponent is one who doesn’t deal well with anger, enraging him might actually be the wiser strategy. After all, as Sun Tzu said, “If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant”.

When you know how your adversary handles anger, you will be able to determine whether he is someone you should anger in order to throw him off balance and get him so flustered he doesn’t see anything but his own frustration. If your adversary is enraged, he could make terrible mistakes, mistakes that will prove fatal to his organization, his business, his base of operations. And you’ll be the one to reap the rewards.
