I just finished a great book that I think each and every ITF Taekwon-Do school owner should read! It’s called Think And Grow Rich With Peace Of Mind by Napoleon Hill.
You’ve probably heard of his most popular book, Think And Grow Rich. If not, that is a must read as well. Napoleon Hill’s work is at the foundation of most of what you see today referred to as “personal development”.
Think And Grow Rich With Peace Of Mind does an amazing job tackling the subject of wealth. It deals with monetary wealth and well as what I call mental wealth, or peace of mind.
Making money responsibly and attaining wealth as a Taekwon-Do Instructor is one of the most polarizing subjects we have to deal with in our industry and many instructors struggle with the idea of becoming wealthy running a Taekwon-Do School.
If you are on the fence about whether or not you can make money teaching Taekwon-Do AND make the difference you want to make with people, change people’s lives and maintain the integrity of the art, this book will settle that for you.
It will give you a unique perspective and launch you in the direction you want to go!
You can get a used copy of it on amazon.com for under three dollars so you have no excuse. Go get this book and read it. It was the book Napoleon Hill wrote latest in life, and in my opinion, his best.
