    Hiya!
    This may sound daft but I'm not sure I ever fully knew what I wanted to do. I have had various professions and I'm sure at some stage I thought I wanted to do them, but now I have decided that I'm working purely to pay for the things I enjoy doing as opposed to working at some job that I want to do for ever.
    So I now work on the doors, which helps me pay for seminars and holidays (on the rare occasion. lol) and helps me develop my martial arts and self protection skills.
    So I'm kinda sorting the world out.. one drunken idiot at a time Wink

    nice guys

    Im much the same as steve,
    never really knew all i knew was that I wanted to stop getting Crap from people, so took up MA. so now I train, teach, pass on what knowledge I have to others. not always in a class. I sit, listen, and offer advice if they want it from my perspective. Now that I can teach, I do it by listening and talking not always by training people physcailly

    So I guess in a way Im sorting the world out by helping others in a manner that they dont realise, im just listening and being there and maybe the odd workout to release some stress. one person, one day at a time. the world changes

    You can significantly affect the world in a multitude of ways, over the last 35 years I've taught thousands of people and changed their lives, they have gone on to change others, people often write to me to say that they've read an article I've written and it's changed their life. Others have watched DVD's or read a book I've written. Training bodyguards, special services and police has meant that some have come back and said that their training was life saving, ordinary students have said the same. Others have said their training has helped them to deal with stress at work or at home.

    I think that whatever you do - you should do it well, the Buddhist guidance of wisdom, good behavior, and heightened mental awareness and focus will always serve well and set a good example to others.

    I wanted to be a pole dancer! Marry a millionaire footballer and never have to work again! ;-)

    However when that did not work out I ended up kind of falling into things (and yeah its painful!). The truth is I have no idea where I am going even now, I look back on my life and I am in a place where I never thought I would be and it is a more positive, warm and caring environment with people who support and believe in me, from family (they have to it is the law!), to close friends to new friends in my life from MA/Self protection. I guess I have been lucky I have managed to have some great jobs which some cracking people, but due to my father being very ill I have met some truly amazingly people and they make me feel so humble, they spend their working days saving people, rebuilding people, loving and supporting people to a point where I realised that I have always been looking for something, never known what, but never felt 100% whole and then I met Geoff and Al and Mick and something clicked, so for me, this is where I am, never thought I would be, but glad to be here.

    gosh ....feeling a bit bad about being so glib at the start of this!i have trained with some of you who have answered so i know just how great you guys are!
    some i've shown around building sites(peter)
    and some i have been following their career in print....how lucky are we all??

    we are all on the threshold of something great in the UK
    people seem to want more than just generic MA or sweat a bit in a tapout t-shirt......which is also ok...who am i to question the validity of what they get out of MA!!!

    but in these days of seemingly fruitless searching for meaning....i honestly believe that on this forum there are people who can change lives....for the better....if that sounds cliche'd then sorry!
    i'ts truly what i believe x

    Amen to that mick
    We are ALL capable of changing someones lives
    some of you on here have already helped change mine for the better, and will continue to do so I have no doubt.

    We have a great bunch people on here, from both sexes. and ones whom clearly are not afraid to say what they feel, or how they feel. which shows courage in itself.

    If you can do this and be open and honest with yourselves, and myself included. then the potential is limitless.

    I always wanted to gain a degree or join the police. Just to make a difference in my community. Well i've just graduated from uni, and in january i'm applying for the police (unless something else takes my interest). Like Steve said, i'm working the doors for the same reasons (paying bills, holidays etc) and changing the world one drunken idiot at a time.

    I joined the military in the hope that it would stop my headlong downward spiral to the gutter. I thought, "well I can't be an astronaut or a pop star, what else could I do that would be exciting every day and make me hard. You see, like a lot of you guys, I had similar reasons to yours in becoming Martial Artists in that I wanted confidence and ability to cope and not be intimidated. I learned to respect myself in the end and discovered a theraputic passion for exercise. But I also learned that true self-fulfillment comes not from the job we do, however adrenalin inducing it may be, or the riches we have, but from learning and self development and for me, true satisfaction comes from seeing others being inspired and changing their lives for the better. What a buzz it is to see a new student, arriving with zilcho confidence and, over the months and years, see them blossom and grow. That for me is where a real difference is made.
