Divide and Conquer

Have you ever heard of divide and conquer?  It is an age old method of war.  You don’t even need weapons if you do it right.  If you can get the enemy to loose focus and have two different ways of thinking than he will be easier to control.  You can divide your enemy with fear, indecision, doubt, or good old fashion force.

This method can also be used to conquer ourselves.  Have you ever been torn on which way to go?  How about being torn on how to act towards a certain scenario?  We have all been there.  Do you remember what happened next?  You probably felt insecure, weak and unstable.   I don’t know about you but I want my enemy to feel exactly like that.  If he does, he doesn’t have a chance.

The moral of the story is to focus all your resources on one thing.  It’s kind of like using a magnifying glass to start a fire.  If you hold it too far away you will never get anything, but hold it close and with-in seconds you will get a fire.  Keep your army focused on one strategy.  Keep your weapons pointed at the main goal.  Make sure your inner circle is dedicated to the one true goal you have put on the map.

For the “not so sharp people”:  This does not mean that you should let your enemy flank you, or sneak up from behind. 

Another thing to remember is that an Army must stay close to its power source.  Hitler got so far away from Germany that it was hard to keep everyone properly supplied.  This proved fatal in the end.  Find out where your power source is and plug in regularly.  This could be reading, church, solitude, video games, or your family.  What ever it is, if it’s your power source than keep it within reach. 

NOTE: Whenever possible the names of any sources that have contributed are mentioned. With that said, tracing the origin of any wisdom learned can be difficult. I have done my best to list these sources on our website under the page titled “Sources”.
