This morning I was thinking about some thing that my martial arts instructor encouraged students to do at the beginning of each class. Work on one skill during each class.
To not be overwhelmed by trying to learn too much, too quickly.
What my martial arts instructor shared before class has stuck with me over the years. What he shared continues to encourage me to not be overwhelmed by trying to do too much.
Thoughts and Quotes that Empower the Process
Through using this lesson, I am able to stay in the game. I am able to realize that big things have small beginnings, one skill at a time. I am able to use time to achieve my dreams.
I am Able to Not Give Up On My Dreams
I am able to use time to not be limited by my limitations. I am able to dream and stop trying to convince other people. I am able to make the decision to win. I can plan to win by not giving up in the first half of the game. I am able to get out of my way by using my ability, my motivation and my attitude to dream, dreams.
