Changing your vision
heard the saying, “You are what you think about”, but never really understood
the powerful meaning implied. When
beginning to train and learn a new technique, there is often great frustration
and lack of ability due to inexperience.
(mentally and physically) This is a natural outcome to have because
there has been zero practice and repetition involved. From a macro perspective, when you see Sensei
or a black belt show you a technique with fluidity of movement and proper
timing, there is greater appreciation in understanding the effort that is
required to become a master. To evolve
in martial arts and in life, we must be willing to change our vision (learn
from others and making it our own); be consistent with practice; and begin to
see the finished work.
we had a seminar in
extremely thankful for the Dojo because of the many different people, who from
unique and diverse walks of life, continue to train. There is so much to learn, and I feel very
grateful for the opportunity to grow by having others teach me. Training at the Dojo does directly correlate
to how I perform outside of the Dojo, whether that is at work or how I interact
socially. Am I thinking the way I
should? Is my time being used
wisely? What do I need to change? What do I believe in? Once I have my vision properly aligned, then
I must work at improving. Realizing that
hearing instruction is not enough, I must continue to practice. Thank
you, Sukh, for the faith that you have, and the value you place on having a healthy,
productive community. You are a living
example of someone who is courageous, yet humble to learn new things. Fellow dojo members, I believe we owe it to
ourselves to grow as people, and not give up in this life, which is what I have
come to see is valued when training.
KEEP THE FAITH.
