My friend Stephan Ekbergh says he looks for a warrior spirit when hiring people to his company Travelstart. I've never really gotten a grip of what warrior spirit means until I came across this bit of writing in Michael Port's "The Think Big Manifesto":
"This is the warrior mentality. No, that's not a male thing. Being a warrior is not about being a tough guy, being a fighter, or endorsing violence. I mean it in the yogic sense, that combination of strong and gentle that is the hallmark of yoga practice. When we are warriors, we understand that there is no control, that the world is a chaotic place, but that this "control-less-ness" is not necessarily confusion. In fact clarity in the midst of this chaos comes when we learn to let go–to let go of our need to control and instead open ourselves to the world and its endless potential."
