Hello! Just coming real quick to dust off the blog and let you know I will be back with some more posts soon!
Now, most “motivational” places tell you, “Get motivated!” as if one had forgotten to press a switch, but that wasn’t cutting it for me, I just couldn’t find that switch.
I think anyone who has ever lost motivation can tell you, sometimes, the fire just isn’t there…
Don’t be fooled by the apparent meaning of the word “almost”…there’s an infinite distance between “almost” and “done”.
Being a positive, altruistic, caring person it’s OK. Just don’t expect anyone to give you extra points for it.
Most schools today, focus on the “beauty” of making a form “right” , so that, after years of hard work and severe training, you become a lethal weapon, able to execute your form with astounding accuracy, and able to defeat any…wooden board…
Martial arts, they do talk a lot about death, dying and being willing to accept death.
But, why would anyone want to accept something so…negative?
Because when something steps into the realm of a fight, then you do everything you can to make sure that your opponent will go down and won’t get back up, , because ultimately, “fair fight” is just an oxymoron…
The thing is, if you’ve worked hard in order to attain something, whether it is material, knowledge, a skill, a language, or any other thing, who has the right to tell you not to show it off?
