Becoming a ninja is hard work. Training someone to be a ninja is even harder work. I have hinted about this in earlier posts, but I have been asked by several people to teach them… this issue?
I require that the person is dedicated to learning. It pains me to no end when someone requests my time, and then doesn’t respect my time.
Is this generational?
No, it is situational.
The reason that I ask so much?
There is a level of danger teaching someone to be a ninja. I am currently working on a book that does that, and I am ironing out the disclaimers as we speak.
What if I didn’t take that responsibility seriously? Someone could get hurt.
I remember a student I had very briefly that always questioned my logic.
First class starts at 6 AM at that time, I hated waking up early because I didn’t go to be early. He MIGHT show up around 8. He also might not get taught that day.
There was always an excuse. I had to do this, or that. That is ok… that is why we started so early because we start before anything can get in the way.
Maybe you aren’t wanting to learn to become the Ninja of Tomorrow. What does this have to do with you?
Respect and Value Your Own Time
Your life is going to be shorter than you want it to be. I know this because no one will live forever.
If you find yourself lacking the self-control to learn the discipline that you are wanting to learn, or practice what you are wanting to practice. You need to start sooner.
You also need to get disturbed. Your behavior will not change until you discover the path that you are currently own will not end the way you want it to end.
Offending yourself with your lifestyle is the easiest way to see a change in your life.
Have a passion and respect your time.
