Be Humble

Ego can be the biggest obstacle to learning. It’s not always about you. Help others learn. They are just as part of creation as you. Accept that you don’t know, but be willing to learn. Realize that you may not understand a concept or a throw in a single class. It may take a week, a month, a year or a lifetime. Best to figure on a lifetime. Don’t blame others if you don’t understand. Maybe your mind just isn’t ready. The epiphany will come in due time and it will mean so much more. Be joyful in your practice. Play. The world benefits more from your joy than your black belt. You’ll be remembered by how you make others feel, not by your rank.
