Super Saiyan 3

If something isn’t going your way:

Get angry

If something makes you sad:

Get angry

If something impossible cannot be changed:

Get angry

Anger is a raw and powerful, uncontrollable element. Or it’s supposed to be! Harness it and you’ve got the energy to be able to accomplish things you (and/or others) would normally deem unattainable. If you channel that anger into positive changes to tackle what made you angry in the first place, you can overcome many self-imposed and external restrictions in your life.

It is possible to light a raging fire in your soul, giving you an almost unlimited energy source. Because of the nature of fire being so volatile, it is very easy to let it burn the ones you care about. Avoiding this is a skill in itself, that takes a lot of practice to perfect.

I’ve had so much practice, that I feel confident in my safely compartmentalising anger for future use. This allows me to go about my daily life feeling relaxed, but able to draw upon this unlimited energy source when needed. Here is a video to show what I feel like when I tap into it:



If you truly want something, you will make it happen. In hospital, I used this mind-set to overcome paralysis. The “roaring with passion” is not an exaggeration for me. In hospital, and when I came back to my mum’s house, it was only in my head. But after moving into my own house in 2011, when I am in my gym and battling disability, I now verbalise this. There are benefits to living alone in a detached property! Although I hadn’t made the connection, after watching Dragonball Z at Christmas, I realised I am doing exactly the same in real life. I am a disabled Goku! Maybe subconsciously, that’s why I’ve been growing my hair. It’s taking a tad longer than him though…

I can relate to him so much. When I am alone exercising, to all those that deem my dreams impossible,Β I often grin and say, “Watch this…”

  1. It’s vital to learn this lesson. I’m still working on my other half (!) who was shot in ’97 and still lets his anger get the better of him instead of harnessing it. x

  11. I can see this has been a great modus operandi for you – look where it’s gotten you! I also used anger, when trying to rehab from two knee replacements – helped the rehab go more quickly and got me back to normal in record time.

  12. Great post, Nick. Loved the video but fear I’ve a long way to go before I can safely harness my anger. I’ll keep working on it, though. I love that Walter Bagehot quote. It’s so true – doing something everyone says you can’t do is extremely satisfying. πŸ™‚

  17. Totally understand this Nick. I`m not yet at your stage but learning slowly to use anger to create rather than turning it inwards on myself. Thank you for sharing this, so much.

  18. You, above all, should know about harnessing anger, which you do so well. Without the ensuing energy you would not be where you are now.

  22. Good for you Nick! You are achieving amazing things, and must do whatever it takes. But anger can also be a powerfully destructive emotion, not everyone will be able to handle it as well as you. Not everyone can channel it into something positive. Feeling angry is a horrible way to feel, but I guess if one can use it on the way to finding determination, then it has served a purpose. Clearly it has in your case!

    • I learned the hard way. I agree, it can be very destructive. If used incorrectly, it can potentially carve any good for your life. It does this mainly by changing your perception of the world, making you very bitter and not allowing you to appreciate anything good. But perseverance in wielding anger into positivity pays off!

  24. They (whoever “they” are) say that depression is anger turned inward. Anger, harnessed, is probably a lot healthier than depression. Good post, thanks!

  25. I believe a strong will and perseverance l can help people overcome many obstacles that are deemed impossible. Though nothing compared to what you’ve been through, when I broke my should in three separate places, the doctors and physical therapists said I’d never be able to lift my arm about shoulder height, or move it from side to side. Effectually, they were saying I would be able to do very little. Even though I couldn’t take pain meds to help me through the pain when doing my Physical therapy, I not only did it at the clinic twice a week, I did my routine at home twice a day, every single day. I now have almost 100% of the movement back, From where I am sitting, you are a superstar!

    • I completely agree with you. I believe that a large percentage of how you heal is down to your outlook. Like I always say, optimism is more powerful than any drug. I would say that the word “impossible” is used incorrectly often; word probably should be used is “improbable”. I guess that what has been deemed impossible would take a lot of determination and perseverance, strength of will that many do not have access to. If this has been something you have been privileged with, as am I, we are very lucky πŸ™‚
