Re: Receiving Corrections

Nicely said. Compliments.

Corrections are hard to get our heads around. We tend to want to be too good, too fast (like right from the beginning).

In 13 years, my Sensei has never told me I did anything right. His corrections means he believes I can do better and he is investing his time and energy. At first, any correction within a few feet, was a compliments. Now its inches. And when he just walks away, wow. (Either its okay or he had finally given up on me ;-)

Staying open, we learn more, we improve.

Yes, nicely said.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
