Take away the beard and the axe and you may think that this is a bit of a stretch. After all, Kratos is a bit of a dark horse. He’s never been popular with the gods. Even in the main God of War series, Kratos has always been an outsider.
He’s a warlock who has taken up an axe and turned to the dark side. He’s a man who has lost everything, and an outsider looking in on a world he doesn’t understand. But Kratos is not a man that you are going to take on. He is a man that you are going to take up. He has been by your side through the toughest of times. He has always known that the only way back is through. There is no going back from this. This is Kratos, the Kratos you want to be. It’s time to be the next Kratos.
Step One: Be a humble warlock
First of all, you need to be a humble warlock. You’ve got to take everything in stride. You’ve got to learn how to practice patience and kindness like Kratos did. This is what separates the good from the great. The greatness that made Kratos so successful was his ability to stay humble and content with what he had, always accepting what was dealt him and always focusing on the next step forward. It doesn’t matter if you have a family or if you have friends because they will all come and go in life. What matters is your ability to keep moving forward through this journey of life even when it gets tough.
Step Two: Start with self-improvement
Kratos has always been a man of few words. You won’t hear him say anything unless he absolutely needs to. So, why don’t you start with self-improvement? Kratos is a man who values strength, and when it comes down to it, strength is the only thing that matters in the end.
Step Three: Don’t let the pressures of leadership take over
One of many things that Kratos does that really helps him in his role as a leader is letting go of the pressures that come with it. It may be tough for some people to release their grip on authority; pressure from your family, friends, or peers can make it easy for you to lose sight of what you are setting out to accomplish in life, and fall down into self-doubt because of it.
But with Kratos, he doesn’t let these pressures affect him; instead, he lets them fuel him and makes himself stronger for it. He keeps going through all the trials and tribulations because pushing himself even further will help him find a way back home where he belongs.
This mindset will help you stay focused on your goal while also making sure that you don’t forget why you are fighting so hard in the first place.
Step Four: Always be brutally honest
Be brutally honest with yourself. What are you doing in life? Are you happy with the person that you have become? If not, what is it going to take for you to change your life’s direction? Be brutally honest with yourself and don’t let anyone stop you from living. If you want to be the next Kratos then do not hold back. You need to live a life of purpose and meaning.
That does not come easy, but it will be worth it in the end. The path is always going to be difficult, but remember that Kratos has been there before and he knows what it takes to get through this tough time. So don’t worry about being strong or being perfect. You just need to keep moving forward and trust in yourself when no one else will believe in you anymore
Step Five: Decide What You Want
Kratos is a man of action. He’s a man that knows what he wants and goes after it. He has always been an outsider looking in, and now you are the same. You know what you want, who you want to be, and where you want to go, but there are still obstacles in your way. This is where Kratos starts. This is when Kratos stops being a man of action and starts becoming a man of hate. It’s time to stop trying to find your way out and start making your way through the darkness.
Step Six: Show Up Every Day with a Purpose
You need to spend your days doing something that matters. Whether you want to start a company, learn a new skill, or just do something for yourself, it’s important to be dedicated and put in the necessary effort. It might not seem like much at first, but eventually this dedication will pay off in dividends.
Besides, commitment is what makes any goal possible. When you commit, you are putting yourself on the line for something bigger than yourself. You are taking an action that may not even seem like it’s worth it at some point, but when you stick with it, those small sacrifices will ultimately lead you to success Everything starts from where you are standing right now.
If you want to change your life and become the next Kratos, then get out of bed every morning and take on one task at a time. And remember: all glory goes to God!
Step Seven: Don’t Wait for Others to Follow Your Lead
Kratos is a man of action. He doesn’t wait for others to do what he wants done. If Kratos can see potential in himself and his actions, then you can too. There are many changes that you can make to your life and lifestyle that will always lead to better days ahead.
You just need to stop waiting around, as there is nothing wrong with doing things on your own. You have the power within you to be the next Kratos, who knows what heights awaits you? The time for change has come, it’s time for the new Kratos to take over!
Step Eight: Stay Focused on Your Goals
As a new player in God of War, there is a lot of pressure to make the right decisions. You need a plan and you need to stay on top of it. At the beginning of the game, you must focus on your goal. What do you hope to achieve with this game? How will it benefit you and your character? Being too ambitious and not keeping focused on what is important may cause your early demise. Start out by figuring out what your overall goal is for the game. This way, when you encounter something tough or challenging, you will already have an idea on how to proceed.
The more specific that you can be in stating your goal, the more likely it is that you will succeed at it. If your ultimate goal is getting through Olympus alive, then figure out how to do that before anything else. Once you’ve figured out how to get through Olympus alive, move onto other goals like finding Pandora’s Box or The Blade of Olympus.
Step Nine: Always be learning new skills
Kratos is not just a man who can wield the power of an axe. He is also a man who never stops learning new skills. He takes the most out of his enemies and the world around him. At one point, he even learned how to fly. If you want to be like Kratos, it’s best that you learn something new every day. It doesn’t have to be something big, but it should be something that helps you get ahead in life.
In fact, there are some things that will make you better than Kratos himself: You might not become as powerful as Kratos in terms of your skill with weapons, but you will know more about the world around you than he ever did.
You might not have had quite as much experience as Kratos when it comes to fighting, but your understanding of others and their motivations might help you get more wins in life than he ever did. You might not have had quite as much experience as Kratos outside of fighting; however, your capacity for compassion will help set your journey on a different path compared to his own.
Step Ten: Don’t be afraid to sacrifice for the greater good
Kratos is the ultimate hero. He sacrifices everything, including himself and his own family, to make sure that others are safe. He fights to protect those around him and leave this world a better place for the next generation. You can’t be the next Kratos if you don’t put yourself on the line for those who need it.
You have to be willing to sacrifice everything for what you believe in. It doesn’t always happen overnight, but once you do make that leap of faith, you will find that there is nothing in life more fulfilling. Remember: your enemies won’t know what hit them until they taste your steel, or feel your blade ripping through their flesh. You are Kratos and you are here to take up this mantle!
