When you ask a bunch of people about what it means to be a true Black Belt you will get various answers but soon enough you will see a pattern emerge.
This pattern will show that being a good black belt is about hold yourself to a higher standard. Meaning that you strive to live a better life. Via eating healthy, exercising and training, being kind to others, being helpful, working hard and productively, being the best parent you can be, having healthy relationships, and so on and so forth.
With having higher standards for yourself comes great rewards. Your life will benefit more from having higher standards.
So what in your life can you increase the standards for? What can you focus on that will make your life a little better?
