This week, we will discuss the idea of improving our Belief in our ourselves. Often times, our belief system is what gets in our way of achieving our dreams and goals. it is easy to build up a wall of disbelief based on our fears. Gail Devers once said, “Keep your dreams alive. Understand that to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those that believe.”Let’s take that first step of faith and believe so that we can achieve. Good Luck! You are worth it!
Only 26 more days until testing! Be in class and make more time to practice. You can do it! TANG SOO!!!
This week, we will focus on improving our Courage. The Korean word for Courage is Young Gi. It takes a lot of courage to step outside of our comfort zone to improve ourselves. In the martial arts, we are constantly pushing ourselves to have more courage. A few familiar examples include getting started in karate, breaking a board, testing for your next rank and competing at a championship. John Wayne once said, “Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway.” Good luck in your journey of building more courage in your daily life.
This week, we will focus on improving our Focus. It’s easy to get focused on what we don’t have or cant do. Let’s get real by focusing on where we are and where we want to be. Brian Tracy, who is a Black Belt and motivational speaker, once said, “The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire, not things we fear.” Let’s commit to improving our Focus on a daily basis to help us achieve more this week. Good Luck!
