Motivational Quote of the Week (8/8/16)

Motivational Quote of the Week:

"It always seems impossible until its done." -Nelson Mandela

Our outlook on life has lots do with how we see the world, for the more impossible feats I may witness or take part in will change my perception of whats possible. Increasing the limits I place upon myself and others, however its important that I experience an impossible feat to truly understand how it can be done. As its too easy to go on the internet and find thousands of amazing feats on video, but I'll only understand the climax of that feat and not experience or witness the work it took to get there.

For example, going through my martial arts training to obtain the 1st degree black belt I've witnessed plenty of board breaks. Including watching the Masters ahead of me demolish 4+ boards like it was nothing and with no previous training in board breaking I was in for a ride. As we would train our hands and feet by striking rebreakable boards that simulated actual boards we'd break. It took many hours of conditioning my body to sustain such impact. We'd strike hard bags and hard surfaces to condition our bodies to accept pain. It was upon passing my 1st degree black belt testing that made me understand the work it took to achieve an amazing feat. Though my understanding has flourished since I've passed my 2nd, 3rd and 4th degree black belt testing which gets harder the higher you go. It was then after passing my 4th degree black belt and earning the title as "Master" that I understood that my version of an impossible feat will change the further I push myself to achieving them.

So it's upon your own determination and motivation to achieve what seems impossible. While extending your own limits and inspiring others you've got the opportunity to keep pushing the boundaries and experience fulfillment in your life.
