1. Do you complain often of "feeling bad", and if so, what is the cause?







No not really I usually tend to just grin and bare it. I never really get sick either so the only times I'm really "feeling bad" is due to injuries which when you've had so many you start to not think much of it and go on with what you were doing.







2. Do you like your occupation? If not, why?







Hmm not really I guess that's why I'm going to college lol. The reason being is the pay isn't suitable for my future plans and it’s just a filler job until I get a career.







3. Are you envious of those who excel you?







Not at all, I admire them and if it's in a field I excel at my admiration fuels my will to work harder to surpass them.







4. Are you gaining or losing self-confidence as you grow older?







I'm not losing any, and I think with each victory in life you gain a little more confidence so taking that into consideration I guess I've gained more.







5. Do you tolerate negative or discouraging influences which you can avoid?







No if I can avoid negative issues or conflicts why would I subject myself to them.







6. How many preventable disturbances annoy you, and why do you tolerate them?







Hmm, I'm pretty easy going and I live by the expression "don't sweat the small things" so petty annoyances I feel are better to just deal with than to go out of your way to prevent them.







7. Do you analyze all mistakes and failures and try to profit by them or, do you take the attitude that this is not your duty?







Of course I do, it is important to learn from your mistakes. If you don't accept your mistakes and work to solve them than you will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again, and that in my mind shows a weak will.







8. Do you form your own opinions or permit yourself to be influenced by other people?








My own of course, I've been told I'm highly opinionated lol.







9. How much time out of every 24 hours do you devote to:







a. your occupation - well if I add college to this as well it'd be 12 hours



b. sleep - yeah well about that I don't sleep much so maybe 4 hours



c. play and relaxation - 3



d. acquiring useful knowledge - I will consider this time training so 5 hours



e. plain waste - wouldn't this kind of go with c?







10. Who among your acquaintances:







a. encourages you most?







My fiancée Kate







b. cautions you most?







Lol probably Kate again (she worries about me and often says I push myself to hard)







c. discourages you most?







Honestly nobody I am blessed to be surrounded with friends and family who always give nothing but support.







d. helps you most in other ways?







Hmm that'd be Master Huang he has been training me 1 on 1 since I was 9 he has taught me so much and has been one of the biggest influences in my life.







11. What is your greatest worry? Why do you tolerate it?







My greatest fear is hurting the ones that I love like dying and leaving them behind. I've been in a couple near death situations (all related to training, and possibly pushing myself well beyond the safe zone) and during those times I never feared dying myself because death is inevitable and I refuse to fear something I can't avoid. That being said I was still terrified of dying because all I could think of is Kate heart broken and crying that image is the most painful thing I can think of, a pain far worse than anything physical it’s a pain that wounds the soul, like a blade piecing my heart and twisting so as to not heal. Anything that will put Kate in that situation terrifies me.







I tolerate this fear because if I gave into it I would be forever crippled with paranoia and over protectiveness of something which is ultimately out of my control.







12. What, above all else, do you most desire? Do you intend to acquire it?



How much time daily do you devote to acquiring it?








A life time of peace and happiness with Kate by my side. I attend to have this and I will devote every hour of my life to make sure we have this.







13. Do you usually finish everything you begin?







Depends on the importance of it, but if I make a promise I will without a doubt honor my word and keep that promise.







14. Are you easily influenced by what other people think or say of you?







Nope not really only 2 people who actually have a real influence on me and they are Kate and Master Huang.







15. Whom do you believe to be the greatest person living?



In what respect is this person superior to yourself?








Wow this is a hard one, but I'd have to give that to Master Huang for making me who I am today. Without his teachings, constant guidance, and advice whenever I needed it no matter what time it is I don't know where I'd be today.

I do like working in logistics for stores but its a job that demands a lot of attention.



3.Are you envious of those who excel you?

Everyone has something another wants, how I see it. You always find a shadow under the sun,



4.Are you gaining or losing self-confidence as you grow older?

gained more


5.Do you tolerate negative or discouraging influences which you can avoid?


nope, I'm one to settle things before it grows. When I encounter any situation negative, I make sure it doesn't bother me by fixing it.


6.How many preventable disturbances annoy you, and why do you tolerate them?

not much but I do tolerate it because having tolerance shows you can have self control over mistakes


7.Do you analyze all mistakes and failures and try to profit by them or, do you take the attitude that this is not your duty?


all the time, I take time to reflect about all my wrongs. I try my best to change myself after having made wrong choices.


8.Do you form your own opinions or permit yourself to be influenced by other people?

short yes, long no. In small matters, I'm willingly compromising my own pride and let things go and agree. If anyone takes my passive act as weakness I tend to start to challenge ppl's own ideas. If ppl are influence by my opinions, I'm very surprised.

settling down, I just feel like I should but know I don't need to.

I just live with it, can't complain not a lot of ppl have my freedom of time.


12.What, above all else, do you most desire? Do you intend to acquire it?


a family I made, just live my life out and see if I can follow it.


How much time daily do you devote to acquiring it?


every moment I go out to have fun.
