As Bruce Lee famously said, ‘I don’t fear the man who knows 10,000 kicks, I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.  Accepting that there will be a need to fail (First Attempt In Learning) as a part of the process and path to success takes away fear, knowing that you will inevitably succeed in what ever you do is what I call ‘Black Belt Thinking’ and what I teach my students and clients.

The secret to success is consistency of purpose, readiness for responsibility and then taking action, knowing not think, doing not trying achieves dreams…Quote – Paul Mracek

Balance with the wisdom and power of the dragon.
