The martial arts is much more than simply learning to defend yourself, it’s also about how you project yourself each day. Each new day, you should choose not to complain or criticize others, refrain from judging, gossiping or speaking ill of others, choose positive thoughts and affirmations, and choose to have a wonderful day. If someone has wronged you in any way, learn to forgive as quickly as possible. It only takes a second to forgive, to resent, you have to continue to resent over and over again, it only hurts you in the end. Remember, when you forgive, you do it for you, it keeps them from continuing to hurt your heart any longer. You show people the person you are not by what you say, but by what you do. Always strive to be the absolute best version of yourself at all times.
