Life has a way of tearing you down. It can be extremely difficult to carry the weight of it all. Many are aware that I took the 45 Day Instructor Course in the Spring of 2016, but what most don’t know is “WHY” I took the program. I will get into that shortly, but I wan’t you to first understand there are many reasons people take this course. For some it is the thought of one day teaching survival for a living, for others they want to join the Sigma team, but for most it is the opportunity to reconnect with nature. Each of those are amazing reasons to attend this course.
For me, I was going through a very dark time. I had lost my career (my calling), my best friend just went to jail for 40 years, and some people I thought had my back abandoned me. The crappy thing about it all, is none of this was my doing. It was the direct actions of another. I had lost all hope. $4,000 for a survival course seems like a far stretch, but at that time I would have paid a million dollars for a sense of relief and purpose again.
When I first arrived at Sigma 3 I was so excited. For 45 days I didn’t have to worry about anything except what I was going to eat, and where I was going to sleep. The heavy load completely lifted off my shoulders. From there, the rest was history. I am happy to say I was able to let go, and learn to forgive. Healing took place on that mountain.
Here are many of the life changing benefits that can come from immersing yourself into the wild:
- Fresh Perspective
- New Beginning
- Sense of Accomplishment
- Independence from Artificial Establishments
- Friendships that Last
- Confidence in Your Abilities
- Self-Realization like Never before
- Oneness with Nature
- Appreciation for the little things.
- Stronger Relationships with Family
- Freedom to Rediscover Who YOU ARE.
- & PEACE!
Not to even mention the skills you will learn, and the doors of opportunity that will open. As soon as I graduated I was invited to be a guest instructor at several survival schools, and even got a couple full-time teaching opportunities. I decided to take a job as the full-time survival instructor for a school based in South Carolina. I was super excited, but my heart was always in the Ozarks. My family and I moved to the Carolinas in the Summer of 2016, and within 6 months I had created an established survival program there. At the end of 2016 Rob (Sigma 3 Owner) decided it was time for me to come home, and he offered me the Director of Operations and Lead Instructor position at Sigma 3. Since then I have been leading the Sigma program, and together with Rob’s guidance we continue to run one of the largest and most comprehensive survival schools in the World.
So if you are like me, and need a fresh start then consider the 45 Days Instructor Program. I know you won’t regret it. REGISTER HERE!
