My artists is working on some more superheros for me- these my sons Shihan Diego and Sensei Winston.

He always starts with a rough sketch, and then asks for feedback along the way to see if we are on track to creating the Superhero we want.


This is what we should do with our lives too.

It is less important where we are than where we are going; and the first step towards going where we want is to know what that looks like.

Last night while training some basic students, I had some of my Blackbelts perform for them and then explained this important principle.

They should not compare themselves to the Blackbelts this day; of course they can not perform the same way yet.

But they can and should put that Vision in their mind, of the amazing Blackbelt Leader they too will be if they stay Focus on working at it.


All of life is like that- like a picture.


Start with the sketch and then fill it in along the way, making adjustments in the process as and when you want to.

It’s your picture; draw it well.
