There are days when we can feel negative and decide not to go to karate. To have the two little characters whispering in opposite ears, "go, you must overcome your negativity to be on top of this emotion". The other whispering "there's a movie on tonight, it's cold out, make a mug of cocoa and put you feet up". What will that achieve to develop our character?


Your own personal inner strength can be the determining factor that attracts others into your life.
