So folks should take a look at what they want, ask themselves if they REALLY want it or are just pretending to themselves that they do. Then, if they do really want something, they need to ask if they are doing anything about it. Have they structured their lives or their training to achieve what they have told themselves they want. I think the answer to such an investigation would yield some surprising answers for many folks.

I really like this last paragraph, because it can apply not only to our (or anyone's really) training, but also to life itself. It is indeed a very deep paragraph that can, and should, be used for serious introspection for all parts of one's life.
