Being childlike in our training attitude is a wonderful trait to nurture. A child doesn’t think too much about winning or losing – a child just delights in the action. A child doesn’t recoil from the unknown – a child explores and discovers.
A child doesn’t need complexity for complexities sake – a child can wonder at the simplest of things. A child doesn’t need to have a reason to do something – a child will wallow in experience for its own reward.
A child doesn’t fall from the bike never to alight it again – a child will fail, try, fail, try, fail and try again. Perhaps most important of all, a child doesn’t spend the larger part of their time dwelling on the past or worrying about the future – a child finds it easy and natural to live fully in the present.
See you in class.
