The Truth

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact.
Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

-Marcus Aurelius-
 
 
Successful or not,
 we tell our stories the way we wanted them to be,
 not necessarily as they actually happened.
 Our stories have certain events removed, certain interactions re scripted,
 and certain motivations adjusted,
 so that the story in its retelling more closely aligns with our world view,
 and how we want others to view us.
 
 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge;
 the ears of the wise seek it out.
 
Proverbs 18:15
 
  In the fight game........
 the basics are very complex for someone who has never done them before.
  Failure is eminent without the intent and knowledge of how to employ them in a
 combative environment.
 
 NO BATTLE PLAN SURVIVES CONTACT WITH THE ENEMY
 
-Helmuth von Moltke the Elder-
 
McDonald's sells junk food, we all know this.
There is NO nutritional value,
  were not going to see McDonald's going out of business any time soon.
  Women's self defense programs in many cases, seem to be on the same path.
 Make money giving people what they think they want: fast results with little effort.
 
There are three types that would bring violence to our lives.....
 
The severely disturbed
 
Those in great need
 
Those who enjoy acts of violence
 
 These mindsets are important to understand, they don't reflect normal thinking.
Most people pretend such thought process don't exist.
If you deny this reality you cannot understand or empathize with the threat.

The more you sweat in the gym 
the less you bleed on the street
In the 'REAL World' the trophy is your life !
