I recently saw the 1984 movie Karate Kid for the umpteenth time. Remember wax on, wax off?

Although you may not have seen the movie, I’m sure you’re going to get the gist of this message.

One particular scene always stands out for me. When Mr Miyagi asks Daniel if he is ready to learn karate, Daniel says “I guess so”. Mr Miyagi reminds him of something very important.

He says – “Man walk on road. Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk down middle, sooner or later, get squished just like grape.”

If you’re wishy washy “guess so” about a goal, action or attitude, you too will get squished just like grape.

Either do something or don’t!

Be decisive. That is a key factor in success.

Action – Today, make up your mind about something you’ve been wishy washy about. Decide and then take the next step.

Now, are you ready to learn karate?

(What is it that you are now going to be decisive about? Share it with us by leaving a reply in the comments box.)
