Do you get a clear vision of yourself being the supreme martial artist? Do you find, in your minds-eye yourself performing at your supreme best, your total and complete expression of exactly what is possible through your devotion, and dedication to your chosen art? The ability to see things your results before you have actually accomplished them, to view things that do not even exist yet, is one of the secrets of the masters. Producing that mental image of yourself, and holding onto it in faith that you will 'show up' one day is of paramount significance. No matter what obstacles you have actually come across, understand that you are a modern samurai. It does not matter if you only just started your training, view yourself as a martial expert. See yourself as a person or citizen that would make your parents proud; that would make you proud. And move on with the attainment of this vision in thoughts.
