A martial arts student went to his teacher and said earnestly, “I am devoted to studying your martial system. How long will it take me to master it.”

The teacher’s reply was casual, “Ten years.” Impatiently, the student answered, “But I want to master it faster than that. I will work very hard. I will practice everyday, ten or more hours a day if I have to. How long will it take then?”

The teacher thought for a moment, “20 years.”

Learner could be master? Can learner cross level of master? Can learner prove that he is better than master ? Can learner reduces time and duration to acquire skills which master possess ?

Biggest question :

When learner invest such years and reach to master level than master had reached to which level? Do not you think master have reached to next level ?

If master is not changing his level than shall i consider him as true master?

True master always upgrade his skills or knowledge or attitude .

We are in 21st century and educated person is call as new learner. I mean, he/she have an attitude to learn, unlearn,de learn, and re learn.

Learning new things every day is a need of an hour.
