  • As you saw in the "Gladiator" clip yesterday, there was a formation unique to Roman soldiers that involved them holding their shields together in an overlapping manner. It was called the Testudo or "tortoise" style of battle formation.

    Roman soldiers would fit their rectangular shields together to form a mutually supportive “roof and walls” to the front and sides.

    It was said that once formed, the mutually supporting bond of the Testudo was strong enough that wagon-sized boulders couldn't break it apart.

    Do you want to know how to have this strong a support system in your own life?
  • To start building a “Roman Testudo” (community of people) to strengthen and support your life, remind yourself who you are at your core. We're talking about the values you've listed previously that are ones you won't change for anything.

    List your core values in one or two words.
  • Next, list how you think others see you in one or two words only.
  • Honestly examine the qualities that haven't been helpful in building a strong group of friends: anger, insecurity, or a loner, etc.

    If you want to change these negatives into constructive traits, then go for the opposite quality.

    It could look something like this: from angry friends to confident friends who feel no need to hold grudges or act out.

    It helps to seek the things you're looking for in other people. You can model that quality until it becomes natural for you. Be careful with this.

    We're NOT saying you should be fake or adopt someone else's mannerisms.

    We're NOT saying to become that person.

    Be yourself.

    We ARE saying to try on a different quality and its behavior you like based upon the values that are most important to you.

    Try on the quality until you understand how works and is beneficial to you.

    You can go from insecure to confident, for example, by adopting the more self-assured attitudes and behaviors that you see in other people.

    Confident, by the way, is not the same as cocky. We don’t recommend cocky. It can turn you into a loner if practiced too much.

    List the one or two qualities you like most about yourself. For example, a desire to help others.
  • Now list the qualities you'd like to "try on" that you've seen in others.
  • When are you going to begin?
