In order to follow the path with a heart one should lead a disciplined life.
What does this mean?

peur de l<echec/reusite/critique
paroles impeccable
pas de supositions

strenghten your skills by practicieng yourself
Do not rely on what the expert says. try it out for yourself to see if it really works.
practice regularly with total focus.

embrace many art forms insdtead of only one
get to know may crafts and not only the one you practice yourself

see the advantages and inconveniences in everything
in return for solitude and no family i get total freedom
people thinking i'm crazy makes me see who my true friends are
financial hurdels force me to manage my money properly

trust and develop your intuition
mais pas faire de suppositions

what you can't see, get to know by instinct ????
natural drive black hole

pay attention to detail. cultivate perfection and precision
manque de riguer
tes un perfectioninst qui avance pas assez vite
dont be too hard on yourself, fais de ton mieux

Don't do anything you consider useless or a waste of time
your days are numbered. make every second of your life count.
if you are doing something you consider usefull but others see it as a waste of time, assume responsibility for your actions and keep on doing it.

There is no competition

Competition does not bring out the best in people.
Competing with others only brings out those qualities and skills that you will need to be just ahead of the person you're competing against.

Competitions can be used by people in power to protect themselves from those who could undermine their authority.

If you compete against others one day you'll inevitably meet someone who you consider better than yourself. This leads to discouragement and is totally uneccessary and unproductive. you end up closing yourself off from knowledge that might allow you to improve your skills.if you find yourself constantly feeling resentful when one is better that you. maybe you should ask youself why.

Focus on what you're doing
Focus on giving it your best.
If you need to surpass someone to stay motivated, surpass yourself (apply miyamoto musashi's 9 principles metioned below).

Find success in the small steps you take everyday in order do come closer to your goal.

Find success in what you are doing right now.

"All winning is a process not an end in itself. As soon as you get out on your path, you're doing it. Each small step should feel like success."
