When In Doubt

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere are times when life throws us curveballs. It can create a tempory but disorientating state of confusion and doubt. It may question your commitment, if your overall sanity.

There are constant changes in any organization. Some are highly desired. Some are despised. Others evoke a sense of hesitation and pure confusion.

There are times when progress is as smooth as silk. There are times when progress is as smooth as the skin of an alligator. The former feels fantastic while the latter produces a sense of apprehension. Do I have what it takes? Can I overcome the greatest obstacle of them all – myself?

In each of these moments, there is a solution. In fact, it is one of the rare instances in life where there is not only a solution, but the solution. It is a perfect one. If you tried to add something to it, you would ruin it because perfection needs nothing. It is already all there is.

The answer is “train more.”

For in the process of training you will find all of the answers to all of your questions. You will equally find that place of quiet and peacefulness where chaos and doubt cannot survive. Fear know not the direction to get there either. All is . . . .perfect. . . at least for the moment(s) that you live here.

When things get chaotic in the External World of Systema (or anything else), train more.

When things get hectic in the Internal World of You, train more.

It matters not what the question is, the answer is always “train more.”

How much more?

If you are still asking, it is not enough.

And if you are training, you never want to leave.

After all, it is perfect.
