First of all, as you are hoping to be a military officer of Bangladesh army I will take it for granted that you are not a crying baby. I’ll lay it in front of you just the way it is…no extra glorifications, okay?
The life of a cadet (you will be called a Cadet in the training period) is very hard. Mind it that according to toughness Bangladesh Military Academy (BMA) is at number two position (first one is PMA). So to just survive the two year long training period you have to be strong- yes, of course “physically”, but most importantly- “mentally”. You can be the fittest person of the world but still you will not be able to complete the training if you are mentally weak.
Can you do 200 consecutive push-ups?
Can you do 200 consecutive sit-ups?
Can you run 16 miles in one go?
Maybe a few of you can. But I know for sure that most of you can’t and that’s completely natural. But if you have the proper mind set, you will eventually be able to do it, like all other mentally fit cadets.
So, before you continue to read this blog and peruse your “dream” to be a military officer, you have to be 100% positive. You have to convert this dream of yours into passion (but not obsession). You have to convince yourself that, yes, you can do it and you will do it. Determination is a must. And of course, the rewards are wonderful.
Bangladesh Army or BMA is not a child’s play. It’s hard. So, are you ready to take the challenge? If your answer is “yes” then continue to the second post: Rewards. If your answer is “no” or if you are feeling confused, come back after six months.
