Let them be bored

Let them be bored.

Full disclosure, this blog not necessarily martial arts related, but is born out of 2 personal pain points.


Why you fail to reach your goals.

Posted: January 02, 2019

Happy 2019 Friends, According to our friends at Best Self Journal, a recent British Study found that 88% of Resolutions don’t last. Social media probably hasn’t made it any better over the last few years either. Worse, is the money wasted on fad diets, REALLY expensive supplements and Highly Priced Gym memberships or basement training equipment that goes unused (except for hanging laundry on) and collects dust instead of giving you “SHREDDED ABS”. The problem isn’t your intentions. The problem isn’t you set your goals too high or that we don’t believe in you, WE DO! Most adults (and sadly a lot of kids today) have weight they would like to or need to lose, but if you ask me it is the lack of a thought-out plan, a formulated goal or system. I tell many hopeful martial arts school owners to “Begin with the end in mind”. What does that mean exactly? What did it “look like” when you’ve closed your eyes, and in your mind already accomplished that goal? Next, what did you have to do to get there? In essence, work backwards from the goal. Then I jokingly say, “If you aren’t willing to work HALF-DAYS (12-Hours that is) in this business, it’s probably not right for you.”
