Many consider the martial arts a source of power. Certainly it is that. However, power without principle is a temporary phenomenon and ultimately leads to dissipation of effort or failure.
Long-term success in the martial arts industry, as in other industries, can be equally challenging for those with the added power of experience and those who are just starting in the industry. Short-term success can be achieved by many, but it is the few who are able to utilize time-honored principles that maintain long-term success.
One of those principles is the power of choice.
The power of choice lies in your ability to remember that even a difficult situation presents you with a number of options. Each day we make several choices with regard to our eating habits, personal style, leisure, and entertainment. However, many forget to choose mindfully.
In other words, if you don’t like the way things are going, change how you deal with your circumstances. "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
You can put this power to work by simply being aware of the number of options you have available to you at any given time.
If A is the power of choice: A= B + C
B is mindfulness of the infinite options
C is the wisdom to choose the right option
Remember, every choice you make affects the direction your life takes. Choose wisely.
