Weekly TKD Lesson

“Excellence can be attained if you…
* Care more than others think is wise.
* Risk more than others think is safe.
* Dream more than others think is practical.
* Expect more than others think is possible.”

                                   — Jim Gentil
So many of us have heroes. Leaders, artists or entrepreneurs that
inspire us. People who have made an impact, people who have shown
us a better way, people who have overcome outrageous odds.

Yet, the interesting insight about heroes is that they have the
human imperfections and weaknesses that we do.

They have their bad days, they feel despair, they get knocked down
(in fact, heroes get knocked down more than the rest of us).

Yet, in spite of their human frailties, heroes find a way to change
the world.

Here’s my challenge to you — be your own hero.

Ask yourself, what would it take for me to show up in the world
like my heroes?

You may never discover a life changing medicine, invent a
best-in-class product or win the World Cup. But, you can show up
every day with discipline, compassion and extraordinary commitment.
