What or who is the real competition?
The only competition you have is you. You can defeat yourself much easier than any opponent if you doubt yourself. Believe in yourself and strive to be better every day!
Your path is your own. No two people will will have the same journey even though they are both trying to achieve the same thing.
The journey is the thing that makes the destination so special. The destination is to make a better version of yourself.
Practice, Practice, PRACTICE!
In order for our brain and body to create the proper pathways and make something 1st nature you have to have repetition. In order for you to have repetition you have to have dedication. In order to have dedication you have to have discipline. To have discipline you have to have focus.
We will only perform to the level of our training. Lack of practice creates doubt and lack of confidence. Practicing is time you devote to yourself. Think of it like investing in your future for a better state of mind and a healthier life.
They say practice makes perfect. But only perfect practice creates the muscle memory we need to be able to do the movement perfectly.
Only when you have done the technique 1000 times in a row correctly have you begun to fully understand the technique.
Shaping the tool and sharpening the tool are different. Your technique may be the shape you want it but will it stand up to the heat of battle?
Even more than sharpening the tool, one must sharpen the weapon (the mind) to be able to weather the storm of combat. You cannot have a strong body without a strong mind.
