What’s the trait that successful people and martial artists must have?
Honesty is the fastest way to prevent a mistake from turning into a failure. – James Altucher
Remember that time your best intentions went terribly wrong? You started off strong, things went wrong and all of a sudden, you’re up to your eyes in a disaster.
Having integrity doesn’t mean that everything you do will work out perfectly, but what it does mean is that you stand behind your efforts to deliver on your commitments.
Think about it. Think of all the times that someone has done something wrong that’s affected you. How they’ve handled the situation afterwards goes a long way in determining how your relationship with them will continue.
How honest you are with yourself affects your self-image. How honest are you with yourself? How’s your relationship with you?
In the Martial Arts, your integrity is always being tested but it’s all about how honest you are being with yourself (…and your Sensei).
When you’re not getting the results you want from your training, you have to be honest with yourself about your efforts and ask yourself some questions about your training.
If you act on those answers, you begin to get the results you were looking for.
The best thing about the Martial Arts is that it affects all parts of your life.
When you get real honest with yourself about your training, you get in the habit of being honest in other parts of your life and that’s when you really start to get results and see the benefits of your training.
This week, ask yourself some tough questions, take some action and watch what happens.
To your success,
