Integrity is the essence of everything successful
Integrity is a tenet we must all adopt, to be the best version of ourselves.
Why is this so?
Well, starting with the definition, it is being able to properly define the difference between right and wrong and the ability to feel guilt when needed to.
Breaking this down in practical Tae-Kwon-Do, are you being honest to your instructor. It is important, to be honest, and to gain trust and progress through Tae kwon-do. An example of this is making mistakes in a lesson. It is integral that you tell your instructor that you have made mistakes, being honest so your instructor can help you work through that hard move in your pattern, or your technique when doing jumping reverse sidekicks.
Being honest is beneficial to progressing and learning from your mistakes. Why would you hide your troubles, when you can get help on the hard pattern from your friends, instructor, or peers?
Being honest with yourself is just as important too. Make sure you have practised enough and tell yourself to work harder. You can do this by making a practice plan for the days you will practise and remember to stick to it!
Make every movement count.
Being honest portrays a good impression and will help you in the long run!
