Determination Depends on You

Determination Depends on You

Determination Depends on You from Seven Steps to Inner Power Book Page 31 by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

“Here’s the unfortunate thing about determination: it works only when you want it to. Let’s say you paid a tailor $1,000 in advance to produce evening clothes to wear to a special event. This event will never happen again, and the clothes are only for this evening. Will you go to pick up your new clothes if it’s raining? Yes. Will you go if you are angry over a late start because your stew boiled over? Yes. Will you continue even if the freeway traffic is totally stopped and you have to sit for two hours? Yes. What will you do when you arrive at the tailor’s just after he hung the closed sign? You’ll bang on the door until he lets you in.

But, when you’re looking for a new job, where does all this determination go after a few rejections? Where does it go when, after more failures than you expected, you give into fear and dejection? Are your new clothes really so much more deserving of your determination than you are?”

I find myself relating to the example given above with every project that I have been working on these days. It is important that we know our priorities. It is true that determination depends on what we value because at the end of the day the choices are: to do whatever it takes to make it happen or settle with some type of excuse.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches us that having determination is a key to our success!

My name is Nabi White. I have been so blessed to train for 10 years under Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim, who is not only my teacher but also my mentor, life coach, spiritual guidance and someone who made a difference and continues to make a difference in my life. Before I started training, I had no purpose in life. I was not only weak physically, but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I felt hopeless. Countless of times, I attempted to commit suicide. Thankfully, one day, I met Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim, and I started training at Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy. At first, I never thought I would be training in Martial Arts. But I found out that Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s teaching is not only about punching and kicking. Her teaching helps me to become strong and get to know my true potentials. She also guides me to achieve my dreams and goals. Whenever I face challenges in life, her motto, “He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me,” gives me the strength to never give up! My goal is to be able to make a difference in peoples’ lives, the way my Mentor, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim made a difference in my life.
