WOW (Word of the Week) – Gratitude One of the first Korean words that we learn in Tang Soo Do is Ko Map Sum Ni Da (Thank you). It’s easy to slowly fall into the slump of expecting things from others, and neglecting to say Thank you. Brian Tracy once said, “Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward something bigger and better than your current situation.” Well said. Having an Attitude of Gratitude is going to be our mat chat focus for this week. [ Read More ]
