Taejoon Lee on Instagram: "“It’s Best That I Quit” - An article by Grandmaster Taejoon Lee in the June 2024 Issue of Budo International:

“Yet, as the only living species endowed by our Creator with the unique ability to change our destiny through the freedom of choice, we possess a remarkable capacity for transformation. However, our contemporary culture often prioritizes feelings over the merit of actions, promoting messages like “do what feels right for you” and “be who you are and never let anyone or anything change you,” which, while intended for well-being, can inadvertently hinder personal evolution. Rather than encouraging self-examination and growth, these sentiments promote self-acceptance without the impetus for change.

“However, this encouragement must be balanced with the recognition that true growth and resolution stem from deep self-reflection and inquiry. It’s essential to prioritize self-discovery and introspection as the initial steps towards problem-solving, rather than relying solely on external solutions. The motivation for learning and personal development should underpin every endeavor, surpassing mere task completion as the ultimate goal.
In fostering such an environment, individuals are empowered to take ownership of their challenges and growth, leveraging external support as a supplement to their own efforts rather than a substitute for personal

Taejoon Lee on Instagram: "(Spanish) “It’s Best That I Quit” - An article by Grandmaster Taejoon Lee in the June 2024 Issue of Budo International: “The declaration “It’s best that I quit” raises the critical question: for whom is it truly best? The sentiment seems to suggest that quitting is a noble and selfless act, benefiting others or the collective, implying a sacrificial gesture rising out of altruism and compassion. It’s portrayed as a way of self-sacrifice for the greater good, akin to an archetype of a savior. However, the reality is far from this romanticized view. Quitting is fundamentally self-serving, driven not by selflessness but by selfishness.” Read the Entire Article: https://issuu.com/budoweb/docs/revista_artes_marciales_cinturon_negro_500_junio/98 #hwarang #hwarangdo

We come to understand that true fulfillment cannot be attained through mere physical or intellectual prowess alone. The pursuit of external success and validation, while momentarily gratifying, ultimately leaves us feeling hollow and unfulfilled.
