IS A RONIN'S QUEST OR PILGRIMAGE. — I USE IT TO NAME A COHERENT SYSTEM OF EXCELLENCE. TO TRAIN IT IN YOURSELF AND EXPLAIN IT IN OTHERS. USE IT TO ORGANIZE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE, FOR IT IS A MAP, AND A JOURNEY. — MUSHA SHUGYŌ WILL ASSIST YOU IN BECOMING THE HERO OF THE ADVENTURER THAT IS YOUR OWN LIFE.—>
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
Study strategy and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is victory over lesser men.
– Miyamoto Musashi
A time comes when you need to stop waiting for the man you want to become and start being the man you want to be
Man is an intelligence in servitude to his organs.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
“Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.”
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself
Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
