“80% Of Success Is Showing Up.” – Woody Allen
Whether you like or dislike Woody Allen and his body of work, his success as a comedian, actor, director, and playwright can not be denied. His quote above should motivate you both in and outside of the school. He went on to say, “People used to say to me that they wanted to write a play, they wanted to write a movie, they wanted to write a novel, and the couple of people that did it were 80 percent of the way to having something happen. All the other people struck out without ever getting that pack. They couldn’t do it, that’s why they don’t accomplish a thing, they don’t do the thing, so once you do it, if you actually write your film script, or write your novel, you are more than half way towards something good happening. So that was my biggest life lesson that has worked. All others have failed me.”
If you want a high level of fighting ability, robust physical fitness, constant self-improvement, self-confidence, and more – then show up to class. Using this principal of “showing up” will also serve you well in the other important areas of your life.
