I was recently watching Dragon Ball and wondering about something. What was that something? I hate using the word something because it is ambiguous. Instead, I was thinking about when Goku is at fortune teller Babas's fighting grounds. Goku is fighting an opponent with immense strength but when all looks over he's able to win. The opponent he was fighting was a blue devilish creature that could fly around. He attacked using a move called the Devilmite attack. This was an attack in which the blue devlisih creature used negative thoughts and energy against Goku. Goku wore the powerful attack and stood still and when hit mocked the enemy.
He's able to do this because of his sheer will to overcome the odds. He's also a symbol but believe it or not there is a lot of deep symbology in Dragon Ball. But then I tried to apply this concept and figure out how to overcome obstacles. I guess it has been said even when you're down in a chess match all is not lost. Just be like Goku and fight through the pain.
Also, in life if you run into many obstacles of course be positive and fight through it. It takes lots of energy and you will be tired mentally but putting up the fight is worth it. I am finding this everyday to be the case in my tough academic career.
