What do you think is the key to achieving our goals, our success? Some people suggest things like hard work, focus, persistence. But research shows these are all by-products of something else, something much more powerful that we can all develop. It is this very special something that really is critical to success, and is what I am here to discuss with you today.
Someone who has achieved great success is Josh Waitzkin, a chess international master and the subject of the movie “Searching for Bobby Fischer”. Nobody has won all the national chess championships that Josh has. But even more impressive, when he turned 21, he took on the challenge of mastering something completely new and very different from chess: martial arts. He realized that he had learned how to grow and succeed, and he could apply that understanding to other domains.
And so, he devoted himself relentlessly to tai chi chuan. And after lots of hard work, many failures, and some broken joints, he became a great martial artist, and he won two world championships. Now he is off to jiu-jitsu.
