I have been watching a video of Sifu Freddie Lee "You are all About the Money!" a thousand times and I never stop relate to it. Basically, Freddie makes a good point about people who wants thing for free all the time. They expect a Martial Arts teacher to teach for free just because it integrates the spiritual aspect of the Martial Arts while they are willing to buy pointless movies. It is not hard to find pointless movies out there nowadays. You can find them all in the movie theater and on Bluray. I will give you some examples: James Bond movies, Scary Movie, Tower Heist, The Transporter by the so-called martial artist Jason Statham... movies with racist jokes. What else people are willing to pay money for? Hmmm... Oh watching sports! I used to watch sports myself like soccer. One of my friend encouraged me to watch the UEFA Champions League game between Milan Ac vs Barcelona. I watched a part of it and then left after 60 minutes. In these 60 minutes, I could have done something more important than that! It is crazy how people just get attached these players that they forget about their own values! That is why they undervalue the Martial Art so much. It makes me sick to my stomach to notice such corruption. Gosh! People are pathetic creatures I swear. For Goodness sake, you are not playing the fucking game. Why the hell do you feel so damn proud about a player who scores 3 goals in a row against a team you are not cheering for? Are you playing? No! Your favorite team is not you! Same to the people who cheer for the other team. Do not feel bad about your team because it did not win. You do not need to feel anything. You are not playing so you did not win nor lose! Wake the fuck up already! I know it is better than watching cage fighting of course but please stop paying attention to them because they do not give a damn about you!
A very important thing Shi zu shared in this video is how he has given so much that he ended up not receiving anything back. I can definitely relate to that. When you are too giving to people, you are not going to help them at all. They will not appreciate anything you do for them. I had some similar experience myself. There was this guy I used to tutor back when I was in Maryland. He used to come to me to get help solving the problems. I gave him some tips. But he would come to me repeatedly to me so I can do everything for them. I was so nice to the point he left the class right after I finish my own exam. He was asking me help for the problems he could not solve during the exam. In my mind I was telling him: "Bitch what the fuck is wrong with you?? Can't you see that I want to relax after such stress I undergone in the exam? Were that fucking lazy to even do your part? Have you even practice when I am not helping you?" I helped him anyway because I was actually that nice. You know people always say that if you are nice, people will be nice back to you. That is so not true. You can be nice to a certain extent. Sometimes, you have to be an asshole to be taken seriously. That is exactly what Shi zu is doing with FMK. He is not being at fault. He needs to support his family and himself. Do not blame him if he asked something in return. Actually give him props because the Martial Arts has even less value than video games too if you look how much money the video games industry make. I am now at the point of my life when I am thinking about selling my PS3. I do not know whether or not it is a good decision but I see the irrelevance of it. I am sorry if I wrote with a lot of profanity but I was just speaking from the heart. When you are being real, dirtiness will come into play. Thanks for reading and I hope this get you to think about your own life.
