Sincerity Leads the Way

September 17, 2023

Sincerity is a primary ingredient that leads to greater kung fu success. However, some students, who are absolutely sincere, do not seem to be improving. But, frankly, that is more a matter of perception; improvement is difficult to notice in the short range. Yes, there will be times when one notices immediate improvement. But these are moments to be cherished. The rest is hard work and waiting!

Skill doesn’t show up out of a magical wish. It's clear that it is human nature for us to" hurry to see the bottom line." Well, that bottom line is in the mail — but it will take some time. Once again, students (and teachers) must remain patient — let nature run its course.

Keep heading toward well defined goals. Remain sincere in your efforts and your reward will appear.
