We are already halfway through the year 2018. Are we still focused on the goals we had set in the beginning of the year? Are we on pace to achieve the goals that were stated in the beginning of 2018?
These are all very important questions to ask ourselves as we gear towards the second half of the year. Dr. Tae Yun Kim teaches her students about having a purpose and determination and having a future memory in everything that we do. Our goals need to be a part of us and we need to strive towards those goals each and every day. We can’t dream about it and hope that one day it falls in our laps. Instead, each day we need to do the things to help us get one step closer to that goal. As Dr. Tae Yun Kim states, “No one can eat for us, no one can sleep for us. The power is in our hands.”
These principles are also taught at Jung SuWon Martial Arts Academy. During each belt testing, we ask the students what their goals are for their new color belt. Then, we have them constantly remind themselves what their goals were to insure that they are working towards those goals. We push the students to face their challenges and their fears and learn to overcome them. Let’s focus on the remainder of 2018 and focus on the goals that we had set forth and work to achieve them.
