A black belt should believe that the black belt is not a piece of cloth but the person behind it. I believe a black belt should have a positive attitude about what they do. I also think a black belt should put good effort into everything they do, in the dojo, in school, or at home. I think these two traits together mean that you give your best effort at whatever you do, and if you try your absolute best and fail, you walk away with your head down in shame? No, you don’t because you gave it your all and you have then learned what you need to improve, and practice more.
