About Black Belt In Life

A “Black Belt in Life” 🎓 is the continuous pursuit of self-perfection. It’s being BAD A$$ in all aspects of being!  Are you ready to transcend from average to savage – Ordinary student to modern day samurai! This self-help curriculum has sharpened the swords ⚔ of thousands of people seeking a warrior’s mindset, and now it’s available to you.  You need to ask yourself, were you put on this battlefield to survive or thrive?  It’s up to you.  Earning a Black Belt in Life is mastering balance ⚖️.  Balance between wants and needs.  Balance between career, education, health, family, relationships, recreation, and spiritual development.  Balance between work and play.  In essence, black belt balance represents discovering “happiness,” the most cherished commodity in the world!  Happiness is more precious than any lottery won, stock discovered, or diamond collected.  This emotion signifies true wealth, something you can’t buy or spend. Happiness represents richness only obtained by filling your internal cup.  This type of “winning” is manifest through self-discovery, passion, and enlightenment.  Black Belt in Life teaches you how to set worthwhile goals, take action, and reveal your “reason for being.” Bill Viola Jr. (aka CommonSensei) says, “When you chase purpose, you’ll catch happiness.” It’s not illusive; it’s just elusive, and CommonSensei holds the treasure map:  X marks the spot!

CommonSensei Book

School will NOT prepare you for the real world: FACTS⚠️. It’s not your fault — priorities have shifted from common sense education, to being really, really good at taking standardized tests😠. The same kids who ace AP Calculus are later sinking in massive credit card debt and English majors can’t draft a decent resume.  The system is lacking street smarts: instinct, application, and self-confidence.
