In the end,

-What matters is the regular training on the mat.

-That the true enemy you have to overcome is yourself

-That the only person you have to please is yourself

-Overcoming your inner self-limitations is much more important than other's expectations of you as reflected in your rank

-Failure is acceptable no matter what rank you've achieved, what matters is how you respond

-Everything and everybody else is just noise
AMEN!!
