A Rare Person

It is a rare person who says what he means and does what he says.

A person who says what he means is honest. You do not have to wonder about his motives or intentions. If you want to only say what you mean, you have to be very careful about what you say.

A person who does what he says can be counted on. If he says he will do something, you can count on it being done. If you plan to do what you say, you also have to be very careful about what you say. Can you really do it?

I know many people who I can count on. I also know many people who rarely follow through with what they say. If they say they will do something, I think that there is only a 25% or maybe at best a 50% chance that they will do it. Perhaps they will forget or something will come up. Or prehaps they never had the intention to follow through when they said it.

What kind of person are you? Even if you don't know, your friends and co-workers do. They will already have decided whether you are person who says what you mean and does what you say.

You should be able to trust and count on a Karate student.
