In this video, Chris Yonker turns your thinking to how you are running your own mind. He uses an example from his experience as a karate instructor of young children to break down the importance of being self-aware. Most people go throughout their day without thinking about how they are thinking. But who really runs your thinking? Are you truly aware that you run your own mind? Much time is often spent wondering about the future or dwelling on the past, and not tuned in to specifically what we are doing in this moment. Chris encourages you to be more conscious of how you are thinking and to consistently ask yourself if you are tuned in or not.
Self-discovery is an important journey. In today’s calloused world, often people don’t realize that life should be enjoyable. We are here for a short time and should have a fun and positive experience. In this video, Chris Yonker tells us of his personal situation as an only child, and his early path to self-discovery. Early on he realized that the better a person he became, the better everything around him also became. He learned through the study of Sanchin-Ryu karate that he was capable of much more than he thought, and that our believed limitations are self-set and not our ultimate potential.
