Another Tip To Overcome Fear Of Failure

Look at the fear as an opportunity

A fear in fact may be a signal that there is something that needs to be addressed.  Facing the fear with a positive attitude may result in advancing yourself toward a major goal or dream that you have.  Stretching yourself often is the best means for self improvement.

 Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking, used to be afraid of public speaking, but now she makes her living by facing that fear and giving talks to thousands of people around the world.

So in the end, your fear may become your best friend when you turn it into something worthwhile thus rewarding to you.

Use these statements of affirmation daily to keep your reality of yourself in check and grow your belief in self.  Repeat theses daily to yourself.  It’s ok to say these out loud.  By doing so they become more powerful.

I will always love, respect, and believe in myself unconditionally

I will achieve whatever I set my mind to

I always find a way to succeed

I am capable of reaching my goal

I am successful and will live life on my terms

I see struggles as opportunities to reach my goals

Keep momentum.  Facing things we fear can be more than a struggle for sure.  There may be possible obstacles including you that get in the way.  Persevere and stay the course, remember the power of change is in your court. Do not by any means let it control you.

By taking on a task that takes you out of your comfort level will automatically raise your belief in self when you complete it no matter how small or trivial it may appear.

Three Ways that Martial Arts Training Can Improve Social Skills

Learning social skills is important for everyone. The study of Martial Art can help teach these skills with surprising effectiveness!

Martial Arts

There is a longstanding and deeply rooted misconception about the Martial Arts that to be addressed at the outset. It is not our goal, nor that of any responsible teachers of Martial Arts, to teach our students to fight or intimidate. We teach the ways of self defense, but the purposes of our school are more more important and varied than simple security.

Many of life’s most valuable lessons can be learned training in the Martial Arts, though relatively few people realize it. What they do not understand is that to be a student of Martial Arts is to be a student of SELF knowledge. At Jeff Ellis' International Karate Centers, we instill in our students of all ages and backgrounds the importance of respect and self-discipline. We have been developing better citizens and empowering people for a very long time. With numerous honors, degrees, and awards as instructors in Martial Arts training, and a growing roster of successful Martial Arts competitors and leaders, we have earned a reputation for providing the highest quality of instruction.

What can we offer you or your children to develop and refine social skills through the study of Martial Arts? First and foremost is RESPECT. No student of the Martial Arts can progress without understanding and adopting this essential attribute! It can be humbling the first time that a successful middle-aged executive must ask for direction from a boy or girl who is younger than his or her own children. Martial Arts teach us that knowledge comes from those who possess it, regardless of age or any other consideration. We learn from those who know more than we do and respect them for their knowledge.

Martial Arts Teach Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence

By learning to control our emotions and to think before we act, we become more comfortable and capable of allowing others to participate in our lives. We lose the need to “prove” ourselves because we learn to feel secure and comfortable with who we are. What our students accomplish as they grow in this ability creates confidence in their own power to overcome difficulties. Our Martial Arts students become better listeners and partners as well.

Martial Arts Teach Courtesy

High ranking students and instructors earn respect and esteem by sharing their advanced knowledge. New students and lower ranks deserve support and help. Every last one of us starts fresh, with little or no combative or performance skill. Advanced ranks remember what courtesy meant to us in the beginning.

If you want your children to learn discipline and respect, if you want them to have the ability to defend themselves, or if achieving self-confidence is your own goal, then there is no better way than Martial Arts training.
