Conflict is essential to the development and growth of man and society. It leads either to the construction or destruction of an entire group or state. As a leader of men, you should understand this concept without question. If you do not understand the need for conflict, then you should not be in control of the society you presume yourself to be in charge of.

If there is no conflict-internal or external-there can be no growth. The resolution of a warlord’s affairs, worldly or otherwise, forces personal development in the individual. However, conflict does not always mean physical combat. Being prepared for any eventuality by understanding the controls required to develop your own particular agenda are essential. You must see the need for battle if you wish to develop your own cause on any level, but you should not fight a battle if you cannot foresee winning the war.

The warlord, understanding the tools used to wage war, must also understand men, and must have the presence of mind to give orders without hesitation, regardless of the outcome. This is essential. Correct preparations will generally insure a successfully carried out campaign.

The reality of life and the attitudes of the fates play an important role. You cannot know if you will be successful or not. You can only prepare for battle, and it must be done with all of your heart and with all of your consciousness. In that manner you will have the edge. Being unprepared will bring about defeat unless you are truly exceptional, and there are very few who fit that description. It is stupid to fight a battle that you cannot win, and you cannot win unless you have properly planned for it. Fate, which is based on your true desire, will determine the outcome of the conflict according to the extent of your own belief and faith: nothing more, nothing less.
