Use your “Kung Fu” to achieve all of your goals this year!
On behalf of Grandmaster Lee, Master Buckley, and I, we’d like to wish you a very happy new year!
The new year is a good time to reflect on the year past and plan for the future. It’s a time to be grateful for all that we have learned over these last twelve months and now use those lessons to help propel us into a positive outcome over the next twelve. It’s a time to reevaluate your goals, renew your sense of purpose and rededicate yourself to becoming your best self in the upcoming year. For our organization, it was another incredibly eventful year, and we are excited to move forward into the new year with a reinvigorated passion, excitement and commitment to our goals.
How can you use your “kung fu” to achieve all of your goals in 2017? The word “kung fu” loosely translates to skill; it’s any practice that takes time, patience and discipline to accomplish. Although most associate the word strictly with a type of martial art, in reality it’s the process of being deliberate in your actions, thorough and thoughtful in your approach, and passionate in your never ending pursuit of improvement. “Kung Fu” can (and absolutely should) be applied to all areas of your life.
You can use the principles of kung fu in every area of your life to achieve incredible results. In this day and age, many people are looking for the quick fix, the new and exciting thing that will let them achieve all of their goals in an instant. In reality though, anything of real substance, lasting impact, and true meaning take time and persistence to achieve. Whether it’s earning your black belt, growing your business, creating meaningful relationships, or losing those pesky pounds that have crept up over the years…there are no shortcuts. As our founder, Grandmaster Lee, wrote, “Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Work, continuous work and hard work, is the only way I know to accomplish results that last. There is no lasting victory at bargain basement prices. Work is victory; hard work well executed, equals success to me.”
So in this new year, we strongly encourage you to apply your “kung fu” to all of the goals that you set for yourself. Be diligent in your planning, methodical in your preparation, exacting in your execution, and unwavering in your determination to persist through any trials and tribulations life throws your way. Let all that you have learned through your Bok Fu Do training help guide you to be the absolute best you can be.
Let’s make 2017 the best year yet, for every single one of us. Let’s do it together! Turn your attitude of “I think I can!” into the Bok Fu Do attitude of “I know I can!”
Wishing you all health, happiness and success in the new year!
Onward and upward with Bok Fu Do,
