How a Frail Old Man Subdued a Big Meathead with Roid Rage.
There was this muscular guy built like a bear. Must have been well over six five tall.
His face was beet red, while he yelled at this store manager. He kicked things over, while pointing his finger at the manager.
That store manager was only an inch or two shorter, but in good shape. He wasn’t backing down either.
Then I see this older gent in a security uniform. He was short and frail. And he was walking towards this commotion.
Things were going to get ugly.
If the customer or store manager fought, there was no way the old man could stop them.
I genuinely feared for this old man’s life.
So I headed in that direction to help should things escalate. But what happened next left me speechless…
I’ve remembered the phrase “Calm is Contagious” because I've read about it in books about Navy SEALs. I always thought it was only used in the theatre of war.
People under the command of a calm leader stay calm too.
The store incident that day broadened my view.
This older security guard put on a masterclass.
The old gent asked what was going on.
He listened to both parties intently and ensured no one didn’t talk over another. Whenever one person talked, he would focus on that person.
He restated the problem of each side, and what upset them the most. He also speaks in a calm, clear and soothing tone.
And it worked!
The two hotheads slowly calmed down. The bear-sized man apologized and helped clean the mess he created. The store manager accepted his apology and tried to be helpful.
It defied my expectations. That older gent definitely earned his paycheck. He subdued both men with words and body language.
I learned a couple of things at that moment.
People want others to UNDERSTAND them.
Calm is Contagious.
The calmness with which this old wise man approached the two bullies, spread faster than a virus. I finally understood what the SEAL books really meant with this phrase.
Like the old saying “in the land of the blind, a one-eyed man is king”, it’s obvious that in today’s overcharged world, calm is the new currency.
At Aimcise, many of our shooters and archers are often in dangerous or competitive situations, and that’s why they need to be absolutely calm.
These are international champions, infantry soldiers, SWAT team members and backcountry hunters that we support in their craft.
How do they become calm, almost on-demand? Then come out on top in tough or demanding situations?
For a lucky few, it comes naturally. If you’re wondering how that’s possible, then you’re probably not naturally calm. Just like most people.
Other times, people have experience and formal training. For example, someone who faced belligerent and testy people for decades as a beat cop reacts differently from a 13-year-old social recluse.
Regardless, you may not have the training and experience for every situation. No one does.
Especially when you start out. As a newcomer, you fear messing up. But messing up can be fatal, yet you need to do it, to gain experience!
Quite the riddle.
Sure, you could practice special breathing techniques. Start meditating. Consult a psychologist. Those are all great techniques to control your cool. But they take countless hours.
Now imagine if you can subdue some of that nervousness almost on-demand. Without hundreds of thousands of hours of practice and experience.
Ashwagandha,which is a small evergreen shrub. It lowers blood pressure, reduces anxious mood, and helps oxygenate your body during experience.
This means you’re mentally and physically performing at or close to your optimal. Assuming your sleep and nutrition are on point.
L-Theanine,an amino acid that derives from tea leaves. Which helps people become more relaxed and lowers anxiety. It also helps with high blood pressure too.
It works well with caffeine, because it counters the jitters of caffeine without losing the mental sharpness.
Aimcise made RokSolid to help Hunters fight Buck Fever.
Buck Fever is when hunters first sight a game animal and become nervous and their hands shake. As you’d imagine, not unhelpful when you want to draw a bow or steady a firearm.
People who take RokSolid become less nervous and shake less, so they can hit their game.
While Aimcise originally made RokSolid for hunters, we discovered it can help other people from all walks of life.
Imagine you and your friends are hunting for whitetails, then a hungry mama bear and her cubs hit your eye line.
You don’t want to run with your back against it! You stay calm and remember what to do.
If you don’t have bear mace, you need to move away with slow and steady movement, facing it, without tripping and avoiding eye contact.
Calm is Contagious even with animals!
Everytime a police officer approaches someone, there will be tension. They walk a tightrope of authority, procedure and calm.
They don’t want to use lethal force to subdue someone. A calm attitude can ratchet things down and prevent lethal force.
You can even flip the script. If a police officer approaches you, you don’t want to respond with a chip on the shoulder.
A poor first impression means you’re less likely to get the benefit of doubt, or given a second chance.
How much are hundreds of hours of breathing and meditation worth?
How much are a couple of hours of consultations with a psychologist?
How much is a missed shot in a competition? Or a blown deadline on an important project that is due tomorrow?
How much is a legal bill for getting into a fight you could’ve avoided?
RokSolid has 60 capsules in a single bottle. A bottle will run you $24.99 (or even less, with a discount!).
That’s about 42 cents a capsule - less than your daily cup of joe! We recommend you take 2 capsules a day.
RokSolid does not contain any banned ingredients nor cross contamination. It’s completely legal and you can use it in competitive sports. In fact, many of our professional archers already use it too.
If you don’t “feel” calm or any difference at all, then Aimcise offers a 90 day money-back guarantee.
You have little to lose. Few supplement companies offer such a long refund window. Let alone refunding an open bottle too.
RokSolid won’t cure nervousness, it won’t make you fearless. It helps dial down from your usual baseline. That means you’re less nervous than usual. Everyone’s baseline varies individually, because everyone’s mind and physical makeup is unique. There is an actual effect, but it’s hard to quantify it.
