Having traveled back from our long trip two back to back tournaments from AZ-CA, many lessons come to mind. Super tired and sore from this one I limp with wisdom and compassion. Putting your all into something can be hard, especially when you are battling yourself. Only when you remove the self can you detach from battling with others and rise above it. Understanding where people are coming from or reading in between the lines is a dying art. It requires constant forgiveness for oneself and others in order for respect to become present. I have so much respect for my competition now that it can be hard to feel worthy of competing with them and that is why we must. To win over the self that says it can't is to be true to one's real self. The one that lives and succeeds.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Greatness then, is not an act, but a habit” -Aristotle

      To run a marathon or accomplish any great feat that requires endurance you must train for it from beginning to end without deviating from the outcome. If you deviate, you lose and muddy your chance at success. This I've learned through failure. If you have an alternate motive, you split your energy for accomplishment and that's ok too. :) "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." Pierre Teilhard de Chardin 
 Forgive yourself, for in order to achieve anything takes recognizing that there is an absence of it, a void to fill. Rest, recover and resume with newfound wisdom. You are now a better version of yourself than you were yesterday as long as you learned from it and apply the lesson to future endeavors. Realization is very close to enlightenment. 

Having seen some amazing competitors out there I realize many little adjustments that can be made in order to have massive success. I always learn from my competition and for that I'm very grateful. They help to make me become a better version of myself.
For it is a path of human suffering until you learn and realize the truth. Live in your own joy of realization and you become enlightened in many ways with a fresh new outlook on life.
