The question: why do we bow drill?

I have been thinking about this question for a while. After four years in the field, hundreds of personal embers and who knows how many more witnessed, you would think it would be easy for me to answer that question. I have been a long-term proponent of bow drilling because I have seen it work miracles. I have seen tears of anger, joy, and triumph. I have seen bows broken in rage and then re-crafted with delicate care and love. Of all of the things we do out there in the woods, nothing can elicit the full range of emotions quite like bow drilling.

Diving into marketing automation without setting a clear goal is like giving a major presentation without first having a cup of coffee. You are just muddling your way through. We all know that coffee is essential for peak performance, and so is carefully planning and understanding your target goal; because executing a popular marketing automation technique -like email - is not acquired by luck.

by @monicajenner66 - Jul 12, 2018 - seo social media branding

share your story

Have you heard of the most recent “shiny marketing tactic” that everyone needs? Telling stories in your branding. It may be essential, but it might also be challenging for those of us who are not naturally gifted at storytelling.

Perhaps you are fantastic with concocting BIG ideas and solving BIG problems, but you’re not so hot at telling entertaining stories that are rich with details and overflowing with imagery. Oh, and how about the reality that there are thousands of stories that you can tell, and how do you decide which stories do your clients actually want to hear?

wildereness therapy programs for troubled teens

Untitled123

Everyone has a constant inner monologue running 24/7. You talk to yourself more than anyone else. And what you say in your mind shapes your self-esteem, which literally impacts everything in your life. That’s why it’s vital to boost your child’s self-esteem while they are young in order to provide an even brighter future.

What is self-esteem?

Self-esteem can be broken down into 2 words: self and esteem. Translation: How do you esteem yourself? Or more simply, how do you judge, regard, feel about, perceive, love or value yourself? This includes personal introspection about your character, qualities, talents, social skills, and body.

But that is not why we do it. Not entirely.

The first ember I ever busted was achieved because I let go of fear. For me, I saw bow drilling as a metaphor for my success as a field instructor. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was hinging my self-worth on whether or not I was able to achieve an ember. And I was failing. Over and over and over again, I tried and failed. I felt angry. I felt powerless. I felt hopeless. I felt like a bad staff. It was was cognitive distortion, though I didn’t know that at the time. Fortunately, I had supportive team members around me, coaching me in form and technique. And trusting, so absolutely, that one day I would bust. It would happen. I was the only one who didn’t believe that. And I was the one attaching my own worth to something outside of me. I stopped letting the ember drive me. I focused on the process. I breathed. And I busted an ember.
