Lesson 10: Anything worthwhile in life takes time, dedication, will power and sacrifice, but it will be worth it
In this day everybody is looking for the quick fix, the immediate satisfaction. People are not willing to invest time in learn, if you can’t do it immediately it’s not worth doing. But important things take time, learning a musical instrument, learning a language, learning a martial art all take time and do not happen over night.
Dedication is required. This is the passion the desire to follow through on your plans, to see them come to fruition. Without dedication, you will lose the motivation to continue.
Will power is where you motivation and dedication are born. Having the strength of mind to practice, good days and bad,
Nobody achieves a black belt without sacrifice. Sacrifice time that could have been spent with family and friends, money spent on training that could have be spent on debts, missing out on social occasions like parties and gigs, sacrificing your body, learning to live with pain and discomfort.
Whatever your dream, give it time, dedication, will power and sacrifice and it will be worth it in the end.
