While watching my son, Jonathan, take his belt test for Tae Kwon Do this past weekend I got to see him learn a lesson that so many of us need to be reminded of as we start our week.

(Watch the video for the full lesson)

Persist Until You Succeed!

Never give up on your dreams.

Question: How many times did Jonathan have to kick that second board until he broke through? Do you think your dream deserves at least as many tries? Declare your dedication to persisting until you succeed as you build the life of your dreams! You can leave a comment by clicking here.

  3. 20 times, but what focus & persistance! Way to go Jonathan!! That was very inspiring! What came to my mind first was that he never counted himself as a failure…he learned, adjusted & BELIEVED that he could…so he did! Thank you for sharing.
