Master Phil’s Black Belt Leadership Post #184: “THE MORE YOU ADVANCE INTO THE FUTURE
As I advance into the future and being currently in the process of writing my book to be entitled “Black Belt Leadership”, I return to my roots in grade school where I cultivated my love of writing.
As I advance into the future to promote the message of “Black Belt Leadership”, which is applying 1,000 years of martial arts wisdom to face today’s leadership challenges, I return to my roots of training, teaching, competing, and coaching in the martial arts for over 25 years.
As I advance into the future and speaking on the topic of “Black Belt Leadership”, I return to my Vietnamese roots as it is my Vietnamese community who has helped me launch this message. I can’t help but be ever so grateful for being the keynote speaker:
At Asian Heritage Month on Parliament Hill in Ottawa last spring.
At the National Vietnamese Youth Conference in Calgary last summer.
At the Generations’ Legacy Boat People Museum Fundraiser event in Montreal a few months ago.
At the Len Duong Youth Leadership Development Camp in Toronto in June.
At the Generation’s Legacy Boat People Museum Fundraiser gala in Montreal this coming weekend.
What about you? What are your roots? What is your background? What are your interests? What are your childhood dreams? What are your priorities, concerns, fears, values, and beliefs? What fire burns inside of you? What is it inside of you that longs to be manifested out in the world? What feelings do you desire? What lessons from the past will you take as you advance into the future, with pride, with passion, and with purpose?
I wish you well as you advance into the future and realize that you will ultimately return to your roots.
