So you want to learn to fight. And win. Well, in order to do that, the first thing you have to do is believe that you CAN win. You must CREATE that reality in your mind.
Whether you do or do not have self defense training, you MUST believe that you can win a fight in order to do so. And that is where creation comes in. WE CREATE our own reality.
My Kung fu Instructor, Phil Messina says, "The universe is vast enough for all possibilities to exist." To me, that means that I can CREATE the mindset I need to win. Now this isn't going to happen over night - it takes practice. We must continually imagine success in order to achieve it.
Earl Nightingale, famous motivational speaker, said "We become what we think about."
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "A man is what he thinks about all day long."
Marcus Aurelius, Roman statesman, philosopher, and emperor, said "A man's life is what his thoughts make of it."
Heraclitus, the famous Greek philosopher said, "Think only on those things that are in line with your principles... Day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do, is what you become."
In the Dhammapada, the book of Buddha's teachings, we learn that "All that we are is the result of what we have thought."
In the Bible we learn "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, "Believe and succeed!"
And author William James states, "We need only in cold blood act as if the thing in question were real, and it will become infallibly real by growing into such a connection with our life that it will become real."
What does this mean? Start thinking about winning. Practice it in your mind and feel it with your heart. Training with a self defense instructor will give you many physical tools, and if he or she is a GREAT instructor, it will give you tools for your mind and spirit that will enable you to ...
Believe and succeed!!
