How can I overcome a weak mind?

by Aashir Zaidi

My mind is very weak, and whenever I do kendo, it wants to give up when things become too difficult or challenging, telling me that I can't do it anymore and that I should stop or not give it my all. I'm at a loss as to how to overcome and surpass this.

Answer: Thanks for your question. Everyone goes through that. We are all weak so we need others’ help. Even though kendo is an individual discipline, we all train together. We need to encourage each other.

When you get tired, you should shout as loud as you can. That will keep you going. Maybe not all the way to the end. But this is to encourage yourself. When you get tired, you probably look down. But to shout, you have to lift your head up. This is very important. Try that and see what happens. Good luck!
