You were born to achieve, accomplish and succeed. You were not born to fail, to suffer and to just exist. You are unique just like every other human being on this planet. There are no extra people in life. So we need to wake up, to realise the value within and share that value. There are no failures in life only choices and results. If you have made a few bad choices and the results are not what you want, you have the power with-in you to make new choices and create better results. It is possible!
Right now take a look at where you are in life. What goals do you have for the future? Most people don’t accomplish the goals, not because they set the goals too high, they set the goals too low, play it safe, and don’t believe in themselves. Let's set the bar higher. Tell yourself: “It is Possible!” “It is Possible!” “It is Possible!”
When I was a teenager I loved Mohammed Ali, and Bruce Lee and they inspired me to become the person I am today. Mohammed Ali was intelligent, handsome and courageous both in the ring and outside. I loved the way he put everything into all his fights. He would predict which round he would beat his opponent. Regardless if he did it or not, he shouted out his intention! How many people are that brave?
No matter how bad it is, or how bad it gets, I’m going to succeed! “It is Possible!” “It is Possible!” “It is Possible!” I have a dream to use what I learnt in the USA and Japan to help educate people here in North and South Ireland and the UK to help people become their true, original and authentic self. My tools to serve people are Aikido, meditation and massage. There is nothing better than watching a person leave you, walking a little taller, feeling better and believing he or she can be who they want to be. I love being a “Character Builder”.
Feed your mind with positive words every day! Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death! Tell yourself: “It is Possible!” “It is Possible!” “It is Possible!” even when you have no evidence to show, keep telling yourself “It is Possible!” There is nothing more powerful than a made up mind!
It’s a struggle sometimes to do that, especially when you have negative people around you telling you that it is impossible. You can’t do it! That constantly remind you of your shortcomings, the things you lack, and the reasons they see for stopping you.
There is a story of two very young boys aged six and five. It was winter in Montana in the USA and the two little boys were playing on a lake that had iced over. As they got further out on the ice the six-year-old fell through the ice and into the freezing water. The five-year-old was trying to save his little buddy but he could not reach him. The six-year-old went under the ice and started drifting away. The five-year-old looked around and saw trees nearby. He ran and climbed up a tree, he pulled and broke a large branch from the tree, and pulled it back onto the ice to his friend. He started to beat the ice like a wild man hitting it with everything he had. The ice cracked, and he got the six-year-old out. When the paramedics arrived they resuscitated, revived and warmed the six-year-old. When they got him in the ambulance they looked at the 5-year-old baffled, amazed and astonished that such a little guy could save his friend in such a way. They thought is was miraculous. The paramedics were scratching their heads trying to figure out how this tiny, puny little nothing of a boy could go up a tree, break off such a large branch by himself? Then come back, beat and break the ice and save his friend? There was an old Indian observing and listening to the amazement of the paramedics. He said, “I can tell you how he did it!” “How?: They asked. “How could he do it?” The Indian said “There was no one here to tell him he couldn’t do it!” you can build an ideal life for yourself. It is possible! Until next time I wish you peace, love and success. Martin sensei www.martinactonaikido.com
