I AM A WARRIOR | Eddie Ng
MARTIAL ARTS = PHYSICAL + PHILOSOPHY
This theme goes back centuries. For example, samurais were taught Bushido, the samurai code. Knights were taught chivalry. The physical training is simply a way to drill that philosophy into your mind. When you’re drenched with sweat and gasping for breath during a training session, your mind screams for you to stop, to rest.
When your mind tells you to quit but you move forward anyways, will this not transfer to all the other aspects of your life?
Let’s say that you’re at work. You’ve got some beloved overtime because a project your working on just got hit with a ton of bullshit. It’s late, you’re overworked, and you’re tired. Your body is asking you to stop, to rest, to quit.
It’s tempting, but you know that you need to get this work done. You know that you need to push through. The rest, however, is tempting. What do you do?
Well, you keep moving forward. You’re already trained. You’ve already practiced moving forward in spite of obstacles. Having to push through a work assignment is no different than pushing through a workout. An obstacle is an obstacle.
