Utilizing The Art of War in Everyday Life

Updated: Feb 17

The Art of War is an influential document written by ancient Chinese military strategist Sunzi (Sun-Tzu). As one of the first known treatises on warfare strategy in history, it’s essential to understand and implement in everyday life as a modern warrior.

Here are the top tips from The Art of War that Live Your Beast Life CEO & Founder Shaun Anderson loves to live by and teach:

Know Yourself and Your Enemy

Get to know your strengths and weaknesses, and figure out what makes you tick. Recognize the things that set you off, whether it’s a bad hair day or a pesky coworker, and understand how they affect you.


Life’s like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get! Be ready to roll with the punches and switch up your game plan when things get hairy. What works for dodging traffic might not work for dodging office politics, so stay flexible!

Strategic Retreat

Picture this: you’re in the heat of battle, but instead of charging forward blindly, you take a step back to catch your breath and rethink your strategy. It’s not waving the white flag; it’s taking a tactical breather to come back swinging stronger than ever!

Subdue the Enemy Without Fighting

Why throw punches when you can win with words? Use your charm, negotiation skills, and maybe a sprinkle of Jedi mind tricks to handle life’s curveballs. Whether it’s a difficult boss or a stubborn toddler, diplomacy can be your secret weapon!

Victory is in Self-Mastery

Channel your inner karate kid and focus on mastering yourself. Build up your mental muscles with some self-discipline, resilience training, and a dash of emotional intelligence. With a little self-awareness and a pinch of determination, you’ll be kicking life’s butt in no time!
