Although no one knows when it started, the commemoration of victory is as long as human history. Certainly, the first humans to throw a high five are long since forgotten, but you can trace the word “hooray” back to Ghengis Khan as he rolled across the Steppes. But is it the finish that makes something worth celebrating? Or is it more about knowing where you started from, and how far you have come, that makes victory worth celebrating?
It’s the height that makes the mountain
At Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy, there is special recognition that all students receive. When someone commits to a class, they are essentially telling us that they have looked at themselves in the mirror and acknowledged that they are lacking. Confessing that there is something that you don’t know takes a special kind of courage. Make no mistake, gun handling and training in a course of fire can be extremely challenging. But overcoming this challenge, and better still, gaining mastery of a skill that you felt deficient in is a real victory. Whether you shoot the pistol, bolt rifle, M4 carbine or combat shotgun, you have the opportunity to be better. But this begins with the long hard look in the mirror to acknowledge that what you know isn’t enough. Take those first few steps in training at TPA and you will be richly rewarded with a skill set that few can claim. Better still, you will have the deep satisfaction of knowing where you started in your training and savoring how far you have come. This is a victory worth celebrating and savoring. Begin your training today and get on the path of success with your firearms training and pepper your life with moments of victory.
