We are all aware that many factors like a huge workload, a new job, moving, family situations, stress, even the flu, other spare time activities and even a temporary lack of motivation sometimes prevent us from participating in classes. And I am not even talking about your Wing Tsun Kung Fu training. This holds true for any hobby or activity.
Important is that one never feels that a comeback is impossible. Over the years I sometimes unexpectedly ran into students, asked them why I haven't seen them in a long time and in their reply it became apparent that they thought that they can't return or catch up. It's too late. How should I catch up? I lost the connection.
I have once jokingly expressed my sorrow for the unexpected and imminent departure from life. It resulted in a very puzzled response. My point is, how can it ever be too late to rekindle passion towards a hobby, how can it be too late to do what you love. Motivation we may all lack every now and then, but giving up? NO!
Find out what gets you going, what motivates you, what keeps your engine running. For me it is teaching, being for over 30 years involved in martial arts and after 23 years of Wing Tsun still enjoying to meet new people and passionately beginning to teach them the realistic self-defense system of Wing Tsun Kung Fu, as if it is my very first day.
Today (March 2007) I have added more photos to our Wing Tsun Kung Fu Vancouver photo album.
