No Expectations in the Internal Martial Arts

I read an excellent article yesterday on not having expectations. Here is the article and the link:

How does this relate to the internal martial arts? Well, if you have an expectation that an opponent is going to do something in a certain way and you prepare for that alone then you are setup of a huge disappointment! That is one reason why Yiquan has a big advantage over other arts. That fact that Yiquan doesn’t have fixed forms or movement patterns makes it very spontaneous. That spontanity makes it very power and dangerous. Take a look at the article and comment here.
