"The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work."
I recently came across that quote. It has been attributed to many different great people in history, but who said it is less important than its meaning and relevance, to Tae Kwon Do and to life.
One will not earn a black belt, or anything else of value in life, by putting in less than their best and phoning it in. And any great achievement, once earned, can only be maintained through continued investment and hard work. This is true of my marriage, my family, and our beautiful studio community.
