Desire, Perspire, and Acquire

black belt

There is a simple formula which can increase your chances of successfully controlling the dream. This comes to you from a martial arts master named Mr. Ed Parker who was the head of the International Kenpo Karate Association and held a 10th degree Judon. He called the formula “Desire, Perspire, and Acquire.”

Mr. Parker said that first you must have the heart’s desire. In other words, you must have a burning “heart’s desire,” an unlimited passion to do Controlled Dreaming. Next, you must be willing to “perspire,” to do the disciplines and work necessary to do or become what you want. It is only then that you will “acquire” the necessary skills, knowledge, and training, which will allow you to accomplish what you want to do or become. Mr.
Parker said this is a success formula for anything you want to accomplish in life.
