Fear, and How to Use It

Niccolo Machiavelli once said, “It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot have both.”

At the core of every Black Falcon is a great hunter, waiting to unleash its claws and swiftly swoop away whatever it sets its eyes on. For that purpose, Black Falcons are always honing their hunting skills so that, when the time comes, they can easily hunt down their targets, and even defeat all their competitors in the process.

But it doesn’t matter how great your hunting skills are. In order to become a great hunter, you need to avoid conflicts as much as possible, and have you targets surrender themselves to you.


The reason is simple: because we Black Falcons are different from other hunters. In fact, the reason we keep training our skills is not just so that we can get what we want in life. We keep improving ourselves because we want to defeat the other hunters, who are constantly trying to compete with us in getting our targets. So the less we have to fight, the more advantages we have over our competitors. It is for this very reason that we, Black Falcons, must understand fear, and learn to use its power for ourselves.

To name a few reasons why you must master fear:

  1. The only way a prey would surrender itself to you is if you completely dominate it, and in order for you to dominate your prey, it must fear you to a certain degree.
  2. The power of fear will also help you defeat your competitors, who will not stand a chance in a competition since you have dominated them with fear.
  3. Your competitors will also try to knock you down with fear, and the only way to prevent that is by crippling them with fear.

Unfortunately, the power to create fear is not a skill you can learn. But you can hone it, and in fact, you have already learned a few ways of living your life that will help build your presence, which will then let you master the powers of fear.

Here’s a quick recap:
