[ THE WWA B.A.S.I.C.S. ]
Balance : Having a balance in life is the key to most things. Taking in the good with the bad. For all the hard work, there must come some fun. Finding balance is the understanding of co-existing with each other like the ying and the yang. Finding a Balance should be used in all aspects of life. For example; being a student - athlete, what you eat balanced with excercise. Even balancing the time for both friends and family. Balance is a key to not overusing or overdoing one thing.

Attitude : Attitude might be the most important key to the BASICS. Above anything else, it influences the mind which will motivate the body. Training the brain to have a positive perspective develops an optimistic outlook on how to problem solve. A lot of how we think and act are a direct result of our attitudes. It influences our decision making and our emotions. When confronted with a task, our attitudes goes either towards two ways - negative or positive. Both are highly contagious but are all predicated on our perspective and how we view something. Postive to Productive. Negative to Neglective. Your Attitude, Your Decisions, Your Life.

Sacrifice : The hardest part of acheiving a goal is knowing what to skip out on or give up in order to achieve. Learning to sacrifice something for what you want rather than making what you want your sacrifice. Sometimes the things you need aren't neccessarily the things you want, and sacrificing that greed will only direct you towards your goals. Sometimes the hardest sacrifices can lead to becoming the biggest successes. Sacrifice is a part of life, not something to be regretted.

Intelligence : Your actions are the real measures of your intelligence. Making decisions with critical and logical thinking is better than where your emotions will take you. Making critical and logical decisions over emotional decisions tend to have better results because when emotions go up, logical thinking goes down. Intelligence comes with the wanting of learning, then learning how to apply. Intelligence isnt always about getting good test scores and grades, but with the understanding of how the handle a task at hand.


Challenge : Compete with the person you were the day before. Challenging yourself and others to progress only raises the standard of yourself and everyone involved. There is a never ending evolvement for improvemnt if we go out and seek it. Finding out how comfortable you can be with being uncomfortable can lead to seeing what you can overcome and become. Every day is a challenge to get better. When days are going your way and well, compete with yourself to see how great you can be that day. When things aren't going your way, challenge yourself to take the L's from Losing moments and turn them into the L's of Learned Lessons.

Simplicity : Keeping it Simple. There is no need to complicate things when the basics work. Trying to take on too mch or do too much usually leads to unwarranted stress and regret. It's usually when things get too complex is when there is a loss in sight of what the foundation was. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication because it isn't about it's bareness but rather the acheivement of maximum effects with minimum means. There is excellence in simplicity.
