“I believe solutions are not about sitting around and waiting for the magic to happen. Nor are they about getting the next training tool that comes down the pike, or even about learning the perfect technique. There is no magic. Training tools and technique are only as good as the person using them. For ME, what it's about is getting involved and giving guidance.....TRYING HARD, MAKING MISTAKES...GETTING IT RIGHT. FALLING DOWN, THEN GETTING BACK UP AGAIN... AND MOST OF ALL BECOMING PART OF THE PROCESS. IN SHORT, JUST LEARNING HOW TO GET BETTER AND SEEING, DOING, FEELING, AND UNDERSTANDING." -Mark Rashid
