Everyone needs a circle of equal personality
29 December 2019 | by slideshowp2See all my reviews

A utopian "judo" circle was constructed, in which the bar manager, the boy, the gangland boss, and the psycho were all equal when faced with "judo".

No win or lose, no inspiration, just a kind of feelings of acura......

If you don't understand, you can try to understand:

We sometimes want to curry favor with the customer, and sometimes to reprimand angrily to competitors, sometimes, though we reserved, but also try to show some dignity, we are not equal, not free, not happy, but when we see customers, competitors, leadership, subordinates also play king glory of time, will feel welcome and people nature are playful, everybody is no different, we have both nature from each other, that also has a soul interlinked feelings, "judo" is synonymous with this emotion.

People always have to step into the circle of like-minded people can best find this spirit, only the most equal - you are blind, I blindfolded with you, the kind of equality.
