Choe’s HapKiDo Martial Arts Lawrenceville GA | A hard lesson to learn is having the willingness to get back up, especially when you’ve fallen multiple times. If Martial Arts teaches us anything, it’s that forcing ourselves to get up again is a great lesson in perseverance. Even when we don’t feel like it, feel humiliated, or want to quit, getting back up has so many lessons to teach. Because not only are you overcoming gravity and mixed feelings, you are also developing good habits and a “no-quit” attitude.
In training, one aspect of the martial artist’s spirit we observe is perseverance. To learn anything, this is an important element. As it greatly affects one’s confidence, respect, and attitude, it has a great impact on progress. Perseverance also has us understanding the meaning of hard work and discipline. In a nutshell, this virtue supports everything we do.
Think about the times in your life where the success was worth it. Maybe it’s that diploma, after spending years pouring over college work. Or you finally passed that driving test, after time well spent. Or maybe after lots of hard work and dedication, you finally earned that job promotion.
If we never push ourselves to finish what we started, we end up creating the habit of saying it’s okay to quit. Believe in yourself that you’ve got what it takes, and push on through to the next day and try again!
