Well done to the students of RW Kaichou Kai who turned up for some last minute practice ahead of their grading tomorrow, showing true dedication. Some even came straight from other clubs and were extremely tired but still tried their hardest - brilliant, exactly what it’s all about 💪🏼
Good luck to everyone from RW School who is taking their grading tomorrow🥋
In a world of "participation awards" I am SO happy with this school. Parents have pulled kids because they can "have their kid move up a belt faster elsewhere." For every one parent that did that, five more remained. It's a nice little village we have. We "community parent" and support eachother. We support EARNING your way through HARD WORK and DEDICATION. .
It took my son 2 years (he only attends Saturday or Wed evening classes) to complete 4 tests and to FINALLY earn his yellow belt.
The last 2 years came with conversations about responsibility, respect, self care, challenges, pushing limits, and real world events.
I honestly wasn't sure he would pass and move up because he honestly doesn't always put his best self forward and is often giggly and doesn't take things he should (like test day), as serious as he should.
But here we are. Two years later. Sweat, tears, frustrations, disagreements, obstacles and all. .
I am SO PROUD of this sweet boy and today he finally learned that PROGRESS TAKES TIME and ANYTHING WORTH HAVING DOESNT COME EASILY but it is ALWAYS worth it in the end 💛💛
Make you dreams BAE and (in my #Beyonce voice) "put a ring on it."
In other words, have a clear vision of your desire(s) and commit to seeing it (or them) through no matter what. This is the "magic" that causes individuals to transform their lives and communities in such a way that they appear to rise above all.
Here are some observations from my experiences and studies of people I perceive as successful. Successful people...
➡️Create a clear vision of their desired results.
➡️Move forward in the decision to commit to the vision no matter what circumstances exist or arise.
➡️Open themselves up to the opportunities of being coached and/or mentored by others who are ahead of them in the journey.
➡️Take responsibility and make no excuses while failing forward quickly and often under the guidance of intuition.
This quote of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe best summarizes what happens when someone truly commits:
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts if initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: "the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance by which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."
Sometimes I fight the feelings of "what is wrong you?" since in our marriage we have a role reversal. My husband fights "what's wrong with me..." voices in his head. Its all around us... my friends making comments like "he always wants more bc you know... guys" or I see posts on social media where it's the women talking about the guy, the husband with the high desire. I know it is the societal norm but when your life teaches you that you aren't normal it's a bit of a battle to overcome the enemy's plot to make you feel abnormal and inadequate. For 14 years we dealt with these negative thoughts and it really impacted our sexual intimacy. BUT when we started the intimacy lifestyle THIS quote on this image really helped to transform the negative associations- that it doesn't matter who is high or who is low desire because it's how you make it work to the benefit of the marriage, that's what matters. It doesn't mean Aaron doesn't desire me or that I am not pretty enough- God creates us with varying degrees of desire. The crazy part is that most of the time now we don't notice much a difference. IntimacyLifestyle really shook it up. Since we are so committed to it, and are guaranteed 1-3x a week for sex there are weeks where he is higher desire than me even. In fact the other night I had to pray before sex because I just was not feeling it, but prayers are powerful! Learn here about high and low desire and if you are like us- nothing is wrong with you, you just have to think things through on how to handle it, and how to change your mindset.

Humans are psycho-emotionally influenced by cultural opinions -- the memes that pass themselves off as authorities of some “authority”. These are the psychic persuasions that have been lurking in the background of the human conversation, some for decades; others for centuries; some even for millennia. Since you -- as a conscious being -- are attempting to release these barbaric, unnatural natures; to become real, to be calm, centered and aware -- it's essential to first realize and acknowledge these psychic persuasions as part of the collective, historical, human experience. But then, do what you can to release them from your own patterns? It's like when 'fire-making' was first discovered to be possible -- the fire-makers were a huge disruption to the tradition of all the fire-keepers . . . even perhaps, at times, the claim was of fraud -- that ‘man-made’ fire was not real fire -- or -- that no one has the right to make fire. There's a similar obsession in the current psycho-emotional meme . . . a series of highly modeled cultural opinions being "crowd" reinforced over and over to create "truths" that aren't true. You have to be very aware to catch this “sleight of hand” and by design most people are not aware. These are the cards dealt to this moment of history; your task is to live in this darkness -- this most superficial and corrupted of times, and be the fire-maker . . . warm, inviting and revelatory. In order to start your own fires, and shine light into this darkness, you must release the darkness of your own hesitations . . . you must release the idea that you don’t have the right . . . then ride the winds of this new authority into your mastery. You’ll feel strange in a strange land at first, but keep up, and you'll be kept up. Our prayer is that your courage comes to your aid right now; that you constantly start your own fires, and know that you have every right to do so . . . and do so with a humungous joy that includes every one . . . even the big doubters.
