Re: Are People Really Training to Get Better?

There's also a certain type of student that doesn't really want to "be good" or be responsible for their own training by being the best they can be each instant. Often they won't hold them self responsible and will instead, always try to be better than they can be in this instant. Failing to be as good as they want to be lets them off the hook for just trying to do their best all the time while depending on the teacher or instructor to tell them what they're doing wrong and keep encouraging them to "hang on and keep trying." We should hold ourselves responsible for carving those pathways deeper and deeper into the core of our being. But then I'm "Picky" as many have told me. Our goal should be to become our own teacher at some point while always looking for more information.
