If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. When you have tears in your eyes, you can’t see where you’re going.
Being too serious takes the joy out of life. As a Kung Fu student, you now know things do not always turn out exactly as planned. Adjustments are necessary to overcome any obstacle in your path. As you are confronted with certain obstacles or “hiccups” to your goals, a great sense of humor will help you get through it more easily. You cannot get so upset that things didn’t work out exactly as you imagined that it stops you from moving forward towards your desired outcome. Learning to “roll with the punches” is a necessity in life and will help you stay focused on your overall plan to achieve successful results.
