Kanso- To Simplify or Eliminate the Clutter

One of the things that I have always enjoyed about martial arts training is the opportunity to step onto the mats and eliminate the clutter that has managed to take root in my head. During that training time all of the cares of the world fade away and a zen like state is achieved as the mind becomes calm and focused on the training at hand.

How can we apply the principle of Kanso to the rest our lives? Take a good hard look at pruning people, places, processes and things that are cluttering up your path, that are not adding value to your life or helping you to grow.

To help you get started take a moment to think of just one thing that makes you anxious or unhappy. Eliminate it from your life immediately. Just the thought of getting rid of it makes you feel better already right?! Tomorrow you can choose another and repeat the process.

Enjoy your day!

SWING HARD AND SWING OFTEN

Andre Agassi was one of the best players to ever play the game of tennis. He is a former number one ranked player and Olympic gold medalist. Needless to say, he’s an amazing athlete!

His coach early on in his career was Nick Bollettieri. Nick runs the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, FL. This is one of the top tennis academies in the country and parents pay $1,000 month for their children to go there and sharpen their tennis skills in hopes of having a professional career one day.

When asked what is the main thing he coaches these young players to do when on the court he says, “Swing as hard as you can, as often as you can.” Nick then said that after enough reps of swinging the racket hard and often, the technique would eventually catch up.

Many times in martial arts training I see students trying to execute new techniques perfectly regardless of the fact that they haven't had the time or put in the reps to expect flawless execution.

Don’t get me wrong, details are important, however if we are focused on too many details too soon we can end up with “paralysis of analysis."

Instead, just attempt the technique to the best of your present ability. Just relax and swing! Time and practice will take care of the rest.

Can you think of any other areas in your life where you could "swing harder and more often?"

Are you holding back from taking action on one of your goals because you're waiting for everything to be just right?

Don't let the fact that all the lights aren't on green. Go ahead and swing hard and swing often. You can adjust your course along the way but at least you will have taken the action necessary to get you moving in the right direction!

Bring it on!

Living the black belt lifestyle is about learning to say “Bring it on!” when presented with a challenge. We know that when we approach life this way we are exercising the tenet of indomitable spirit; one of the most important virtues developed through training in the martial arts. A Black Belt with an indomitable spirit doesn't need a pep talk or a protein shake; his or her strength comes from within! So the next time you are faced with a challenge, instead of letting it get to you, remember that obstacles and challenges push us to grow and reach our full potential. The next time you are faced with a challenge look at it right in the eye and shout- “Bring it on-I’ve got this!"

Be sure to share this message and inspire others to start living the black belt lifestyle! Pedro Sauer Mike Horihan
