Do what you say you are going to do.
This is the first step to success. Your word is very important in creating trust. Trust is important in being a leader.
Learn good habits to help you achieve your goals
If you want to achieve something, set out a clear path to achieving that goal. Gradings at Northstar allow the students to set a short term goal, commit to self discipline by regularly attending class and training hard, then finally attaining the new belt. This easy format can be applied to anything in life.
Watch your diet and eat good foods.
Fast foods and junk foods taste really good, but you wont feel real healthy. Martial Artists always make sure that the body has plenty of good food such as vegetables and fruit, which acts as fuel to keep them going. Say no to sweets and yes to an apple.
Don’t react with Anger
Always take a breath and think that if I get angry what will the results be. Will I hurt some one, will I break something, will I make things worse and get into trouble. Martial Arts is about learning to control your emotions such as anger, and hope we become masters in anger management. By being cool and unruffled, we don’t get upset, and work out situations calmly, so that every one feels good about the outcome.
Say “NO to drugs and cigarettes.
Drugs and cigarettes effect the Martial Artists performance. You cant run or swim as fast and you definitely cant spar well. Just because your friends might be into it doesn’t mean that it is cool or hip. It is bad for you and will affect your health. Leaders choose for themselves. A martial artist knows that he or she does not need to smoke to be cool. They are happy with themselves.
