Ive always wondered how many times one of these tools took a cheap shot at the wrong person. i had a good friend at a job once that was the true nerd who got bullied at school and went threw karate to stop it. still looked and dressed like a geek but damn if someone ever tried that on him. it would be funny to watch thoA friend once asked me why I bother to train MMA if I'm not going to fight.
"Because life is a brawl waiting to happen and I'm not taking a loss".
I'm way older now but that one keeps me working the bag and exercising to this day. If you need proof of concept, just search "cheap shot" on youtube. Crazy the stuff that goes down in this world without provocation of any kind.
I believe that is a quote of Ben FranklinI was sitting here reading some of these inspirational quotes and my 12 year old son reminded me of one I say ALL THE TIME. Its not mine, it came from my psychology teacher in high school (loved that woman)
"Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see"
This has served me VERY well in life!
I heard the extended version of that:I was taught this as a young boy, and been living by and saying it every since...over 30yrs now...

Along same line... you never have time to do it right the first time, but always find time to go back and fix it."Wherever you go, there you are..." --Buckaroo Bonzi
What I preach to all of our associates at the warehouse is, Take your time to do right the first time, or else you will have to take more time to do it again to fix it...
