A rising tide raises all ships.
We use our own successes to help motivate and inspire others, teach them, and be a positive example. Life is not a contest, what helps this around me helps me, and we shall all look to give back and provide value, love, and service to those around us for the sake if it, and not for ourselves.
Strength is never a weakness.
Above all we strive for a stronger body, mind, resolve, and commitment in all aspects of our lives. This is a practice not a destination. work every day on building the buffer between our existence and anything that does not move us in the direction we wish to travel in. Strength of thought, calm mind, clear vision, and able body, with complete control of our actions. This is true strength.
Never Stop Learning.
No one knows it all, we’re never done learning, and we never pretend to have it all figured out. Approaching every situation with a closed mind and an open mouth allows us to take in even the smallest bit of knowledge from everything around us, there are lessons to be learned, we have to let them in.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words.
Being humble of speech and loud of action, we do what we say we’ll do. Don’t wait until something is perfect, don;t over analyze, act. There is only today, there is only now, and practicing our virtues is what makes them real, not writing or speaking them.
Mastery of the basics.
The mundane fundamentals are to be practiced often, well, and we should always look to achieve a better understanding of our own movement. Every great thing is built of the small bricks and blocks of it creation, built on the thousands of small actions and decisions that have come before it. Before the fancy can happen, we have to love the process of practicing the mundane.
