What are you resolving this year? Setting resolutions at the start of a new year can be effective if you create goals that are realistic and you make them fun in some way. You might brainstorm different ways to accomplish the goal or recruit a friend to help you do it. For example, to lose 10 pounds, consider how to exercise daily, take up a new fitness or martial arts class, and ask a good friend to be your workout buddy to keep you motivated.
The idea is to maintain a healthy sense of humor: The more rigid or extreme the goal is, the less likely it will be that it will be attractive or attainable. Allow yourself to make mistakes and enjoy the process as much as reaching---or even surpassing--your new goals.
We continue our study of the San Kil Tang Soo Do Logo with the mountain peaks.
Mountain Peaks: The art of Tang Soo Do involves the development of the mind, body and spirit. The three peaks in the San Kil Kwan Gi represent the three areas of development that we focus on in our training: Neh Gong (Internal Energy), Weh Gong (External Energy) and Shim Gong (Mental/Spiritual Energy). By facing physical, mental and spiritual challanges students will improve their well being and self awereness.
