The martial arts have their fair share of wise sagacious masters imparting knowledge and experience into young pupil’s heads. And as a martial artist myself, I know it can get annoying. I want to learn how to kick and punch stuff, how to do flips and tricks, not hear a story about a man who lived thousands of years ago and how he overcame some difficulties in his life. But, through The Visionary philosophy, I have begun to see a common theme in life – and now I can see the point of all those lectures my master gave me.

Life is what I make of it, not what someone else forces onto me. I have to let go of influence and worry and embrace life in the moment. Commit myself to excellence in my own life, and not worry about others. Now, I eagerly await moments when a master imparts wisdom to me, I want to hear more. I want to be in the moment, learning and experiencing it. I don’t need to worry; life will give me what I need when I need it (and while what I need is not always nice or easy, it is nice and easy to know that I will grow from it).

So now I want to encourage you, the reader, to take a look at your own life, and figure out how you can improve yourself. In the words of Jim Rohn “Life doesn’t get better by chance, it gets better by change.” Go out there and change your own life for the better.

    Gosh, I just think martial arts is the coolest. My father served in the Israeli Defense Force Special Forces when he was my age, and he was a Krav Maga master. So many of these disciplines stress the same techniques to handle situations that IMT stresses. You must remain calm, you must not act reactively, you must control yourself, not try to control the opponent, and the list goes on. I commend you for your commitment to the martial arts; you are all the better for it, and the lessons will stick with you for the rest of your life. Cheers.

    There are so many out there who possess wisdom and knowledge the likes of which most people will never understand. I have to wonder how much of it is falls on deaf ears because people do not take the time to appreciate what has been said to them.
