Lessons from a Great Grandmaster

I have Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within, and it is a very powerful book.

I just decided to open it and see what page appeared…and here is what came up:

page 100

“Clinging to a good picture you have created possibly keeps you from expanding into an even greater good. Clinging to a disagreeable picture keeps you there! So, don’t hold onto either as though it’s the final story. You don’t hate, resent, fight, or quarrel with an undesirable situation, and you don’t overly love or cling to a desirable situation. Detachment means you are always ready, open and willing to experience change. That is how you develop. You can’t develop and grow if you hold on tightly to something you’ve acquired no matter how good you think it is.”

Wow. Powerful, for me in my life right now.

It is so easy to become complacent…to be lazy…to just accept “the way things are”.

But is that the healthiest way to live?

We can’t grow if we are always staying within the status quo. Change is uncomfortable, but when we achieve greater things in our lives because of change, isn’t that a good thing?

I know that I want to achieve greater things in MY life… so here I go!  Down the path that is less traveled…the one that looks more winding, more rocky, more challenging…Because I want to claim my success!

Thank you Great Grandmaster Kim for sharing your wisdom in this powerful book!
