Dealing with life challenges is something we all do. Being able to respond to external stimulus is often referred to as using the time before your response well to make a good decision before you 'respond'. Observing Martial Artists in and out of training often reveals how challenging propagating the 'Martial Arts Way' of thinking and behaving into other parts of life really is.
We see many quotes on social media about these topics that get plenty of 'likes' Why is that? Is there a thirst for being 'better' that is quenched by reading quotes? Do the quotes encourage action beyond the sugar rush of reading them? How about one we like that is relevant for this topic;
"Inner thought and outer expression are one" Bruce Lee
Much research shows personal change only occurs when there is (percieved) no other option but to change. What do you think is your change trigger?
When we observe Martial Artists, we see change in technique, discipline and behaviour in the training environment driven from the demands of learning new physical routines. Does this translate into 'better' behaviour back in the social world?
