      Can't put it any better than that.

      I've always wondered why people are so hung up on testing. Just practice and shift your goal from obtaining rank to getting better. If you get better, then the rank comes to you. You do not have to pursue any rank. Go to the Dojo, listen to your seniors and walk out of there in a way that you can tell yourself (honestly) that you did the best you could and there is nothing more you could have done.

      Focus on doing that and you'll have Sensei and Sempai yelling at you demanding that you test immediately.

      Think of it in a cruder fashion... isn't it better when the beautiful woman falls all over you as compared to having to beg her to even speak to you? I know, strange comparaison, but give it some thought.

          OK, maybe not the best analogy, but it was the best I could come up with at the time. I promise to do better for my next one.

            it was an intersting mental image! and quite a good analogy.
