It's a nice soundbite that dosn't necessarily have any basis in reality.

Has this person forsaken all their worldly goods, shaved their head, and removed themselves to a cave for the next 20 years of eating, living, and breathing aikido?

No?

Where's their "committed effort" then?

True mastery can be gained
by letting things go their own way.
