Instructor’s Corner

It is not so much what you believe in that matters, it’s more the way in which you believe it and proceed to translate that belief into action.”

*Lin Yutang {1895-1976 Chinese Author}

The Samurai listed seven virtues of bushido, or the way of the warrior. One of those virtues is “Yu” or courage and bravery. These key virtues are just as important in personal and business success today as on the battlefield in ancient times.

Standing face to face with another warrior, razor sharp sword in their hand and knowing that in minutes, one of you would be dead, required a special type of courage and ruthless mind control.

The modern warrior however, has different worries and fears that they must face, overcome and conquer. Not better or worse, just different.

Anyone that achieves success in any area of their life understands the key fundamentals and makes them a part of their personal and business decisions. Success that is achieved is usually based on overcoming fear and taking action. If you are contemplating doing something different or moving on a faster track, the first step is having the courage to make the decision to take action, and one of the best ways to overcome fear is to take action very quickly. Not sitting around and waiting for the right time, or putting things off shapes success and allows the average individual to accomplish more in a short time than most people do in a lifetime. Life is short, no time to waste.

Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of

This is the start of a new Taekwondo year, let’s take action and not waste time. If you are a parent watching from the sidelines take the jump and join class. If you are a student, make a goal and follow through.

See you in Class.
