Who are you?

Some people want to gain others’ respect, so they take out a mortgage and buy a big house. Since they can’t take their big house with them when they step outside, they take out another loan and buy a fancy new car. But when they park the car they can’t take it with them, so they pull out their credit card and buy a fancy suit to wear. Fancy suits are not appropriate attire everywhere, so they raise the credit limit on their card and buy a fancy, expensive watch. But, take away the house, the car, the suit, the watch and what’s left? Just an ordinary person. Maybe they have the respect of people who admire a fancy watch when they are wearing the watch, but how valuable is the respect of someone who “respects” you for your watch? Take a martial artist out of the house, out of the car, out of the suit and without a watch and he or she is still a martial artist, even standing in underwear; and he or she has respect that is really valuable, self-respect.
