I can see clearly now

People may have certain knowledge,
but remain totally unaware of how to use it.
I see this in both martial arts marketing and in fighting.
To me it is all about two things, attitude and approach.
If one is off, this can automatically defuse or negate the other.
 A great system of marketing or fighting is only as good as the implementation of a proper psychology (with its practice) behind it.
-Joe Lewis-

Fitness First

If you look good you'll feel good.
Learn to be proud of your own body.

If you allow the judgement of other people to affect the way you view your own body you will quickly become just like them.

 Take your health and fitness into your own hands,
 be proud of your accomplishment.

You’ve got to be satisfied with your body and building a great physique has to be a positive and motivating experience.
You only get one body and the effect it can have on your life is too important to leave your satisfaction up to the feedback of others.

Visualize yourself the way you want to look,
or employing a skill your trying to learn.

This really does make all the difference.

 Believe that you can do it.

Visualize a real-life situation where you are using the skill.
  Imagine the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel.
It's a great way to motivate yourself when you feel like giving up.

In fighting violence is rarely the answer,but when it's the only answer physical preparedness is paramount.
If you are truly threatened your technique must produce injury.
An injury can be to the sensory system or a structural destruction.

You need to be psychologically prepared to assert the authority of your will with violence of action.

 The two worst strategic mistakes to make are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity slip;

 to avoid this, the warrior treats each situation as if it were unique and never resorts to formulae,
 recipes or other people's opinions.
