A true martial artist seeks constant evolution. Every second that passes is an opportunity to evolve in some way. We can never be defined because our nature is to be an ever changing entity.
There are moments in life where we must act purely out of obligation. As a parent, a caretaker, a teacher we have to maintain a sense of duty. We can recognize, however, that in these moments a shift in perspective can make all the difference. Rather than “going through the motions” putting your focus into improving a particular skill can make a chore seem like an opportunity for growth.
We all want to achieve our greatness and success. Sometimes an inconvenience is an unseen opportunity to practice patience. Or a practice is an chance to train a new skill. Perspective is everything and it can make some of the seemingly worst situations become an advantage.
