Steven Pressfield, an expert on Sparta, wrote about the core warrior-culture values of selflessness and sacrifice in his book, The Warrior Ethos.
“Selflessness produces courage because it binds men together and proves to each individual that he is not alone.”
This value is consistently manifested and expressed by those racing in Spartan events. It’s woven into the culture. It is in these small moments of sacrifice the character of our community is revealed.
“Courage is inseparable from love and leads to what may arguably be the noblest of all warrior virtues,” Pressfield adds. “Selflessness.”
We all understand that putting others first doesn’t hold us back but in turn, can inspire something inside of us that we might not have known was there.
