‘Aukake (August) ‘Ōlelo No’eau “Wise Proverb”
Kūlia i ka nu’u
“Strive to reach the summit”
Pursuing personal excellence in all you do is a great value of achievement. Our purpose in life is to seek its highest form. With achievement, it builds our character and motivates us to succeed. Being a competitive hula dancer, I’ve learned to ho’omau, meaning to persist, never give up. It has taught me the value of perseverance whether I have succeeded or not. My humbling experiences gave me an opportunity to learn and grow as an individual.
As you go through your day, define what achievement is for you, and strive for the highest summit there is!
