Afraid of the Dark

I can easily forgive a child that is afraid of the dark,
but not a person afraid of the light.

You Definitely don't fit the height requirement to ride this emotional roller coaster.
People have long known the road to success is not easy.
It is contingent on not quitting, just like fitness and Martial Arts.

It is better to have heart with out words than
to have words. without heart.
Don't just say it, do it.

Learned helplessness is the new social norm.
It's the belief that what ever you do doesn't matter.
Each of us has the capacity to make a difference.

Quitting is always the easiest way.
You are promised nothing but opportunity.
what you do with that opportunity is up to you.
It starts with genuine effort (heart) and a willingness to
Never, never, never quit.

I'm not foolish, using the knife from MY back, i've taken and
  severed the cord to the past and the why ?
There will always be foolish pretenders that will cross your path.

I remember one of my Karate instructors telling me we didn't need to learn 
how to fall or fight on the ground because our punches and kicks were so devastating.
Then came the U.F.C.

Second place is the first loser.

One of the things that always has cracked me up is when a girl or guy
tries too be a supporter of a sports team they know or care nothing about 
to try to be more 'supportive' in a relationship.
I think the saying goes 'Fake it till you make it'.

Really ?????

Relationships are  like sales .......

stay away from  politics, sports and religion.
 If you really possess the attributes to make a relationship work it'll work with out you 

In sales and Martial Arts, superior product knowledge is key.
A bottomless 'tool box' is an invaluable asset. 
In two weeks my boss goes on vacation with his family.
I am blessed with the opportunity of working with the V.P. of Sales
of my company for the weekend.

I've got more experience than he does X 2,
but there is a reason he's a V.P. of a $30,000,000. company
 and I'm only a sales mgr. 
This is an opportunity to look into the heart and mind of  
'stone cold, pipe hittin closer' !

Aproaching life with an open heart and an open mind, 
accepting rejection and making people feel important is key in sales,
 life, love and fitness / martial arts.

It's said the average person spends 5 hours a day watching the computer 
or T.V. each day, these same people don't have time to go for a walk,
go to the gym or Dojo. Get up, get out, get over it !

The devil is in the details.
Gathering of information is called discovery.
Knowing how and when to use what you've discovered is sales mastery.
Paying attention to detail in life / love without being reminded
 is seen as 'sweet' and caring.

A genuine leader leader is not a searcher for consensus
but a molder of consensus.
