Dr. Tae Yun Kim is a martial artist, author, speaker, CEO of a hi-tech company, and so much more…
In her book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within she writes:
Help is always available to you, but the help you need may not be easy to find where you are now. Your environment and certain people in it may have to go, or be modified, in order for you to change. If this is true for you, it’s important not to become desperate or to make premature moves without thinking things through clearly and thoroughly. Not everyone who promises you help is able to give it. This is where the tools of meditation, concentration and visualization (which we discuss in Chapter Three) can help you move wisely at the right time.
Life examination is the part of the self-discovery process where you begin to redefine yourself. After looking at how you may have missed the mark, you now mobilize your inner power to recreate your life. All the bad experiences you’ve had can be used as feedback; they are the fertilizer that enables you to grow strong.
Mistakes can be a good friend to us when we use them as feedback in a learning process. As a Western society, we are terrified of failure. We often feel that mistakes reveal fatal flaws in our character. But when we make mistakes, it is a sure sign we are learning. One of the ways we learn what’s right is by learning first what’s wrong. As long as we are trying to grow productively and applying the lessons we learn, our mistakes will surely propel us to success. Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and most other great persons who achieved something significant, failed numerous times before succeeding. They were learning before they succeeded, just as you will do. So, through your successes and failures you eventually are guided to choose your path and control your destiny.
When you have thoroughly analyzed and evaluated your life and made the determination to become who you are in truth, you are ready for then next step, rebirth.
