Heroic Strength – Focus On

Heroic Strength – Focus On

Heroic Strength

Heroes are ordinary people who rise to the occasion in extraordinary circumstances. The potential to be a hero is present within each of us but whether or not you rise to the occasion when necessary depends on the strength in your mind and body. The body and mind must be unified for heroic strength to be built.

External Strength

1. Physical Power: To develop strength you have to train under conditions where you work against another force. A fit­ness example of working at devel­oping power would be lifting large amounts of weight in circuit training. Martial arts application: You can develop powerful side kicks by train­ing with a partner holding a heavy bag as you perform your kicks.

2. Physical Endurance: To build endurance you have to perform a repeated action over a long length of time. A couple of typical examples for building endur­ance are jogging and aerobic exercises. Martial arts application: You can build endurance through extended spar­ring sessions, aerobic self-defense training and/or kick boxing classes.

Internal Strength

1. Mental Focus: Gaining focus calls for concentrating the mind for extended periods of time. A common recreational exam­ple is reading a book. Martial arts application: You can build focus by performing standing, sitting or laying down meditation in which you have one thought that you concentrate on.

2. Mental Attitude: (Courage) Increasing courage results from facing difficult situations success­fully. If you struggle with talking in front of an audience, then doing some public speaking will develop your courage. Martial arts application: Perform breaking techniques with actual boards and bricks to build courage with each successful break.

3. Mental Smarts: (Strategy) Improving your street smarts is the result of being open to more learn­ing and experience. Playing the game Chess can help you to build strategy even beyond the game because it changes how you think. Martial arts application: Practicing applications against attacks that are not prearranged will help build mental smarts.

Heroic strength will naturally come out when you train to build your external and internal strength as you should in the martial arts. Gaining power, endurance, focus, courage and street smarts will prepare you for many of the uncertainties that life can bring so the hero in you can come out when necessary.

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset Part 1

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset Part 1
Mindset 1

 

As a Martial arts instructor, is very important to me to coach my students in techniques and models that help them to develop effective and successful strategies. And also as I’ve studied successful people and come to see some consistent patterns of success.

Tony Robbins teaches that success in anything is 80% Mindset, 20% Mechanics. I tend to agree.

 

In this first part  of the article we’ll talk about  about the difference between having a fixed mindset vs a growth mindset.

 

Here are a list of examples of the mindset of individuals that either have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. Obviously your goal should be the growth mindset 😉

 

Fixed Mindset: “I’m either good at it or i’m not”
Growth Mindset: “I can learn anything I want to”

 

Fixed Mindset: “If I fail, i’m no good”
Growth Mindset: “I learn from my failures”

 

Fixed Mindset: “I don’t like to be challenged”
Growth Mindset: “I want to challenge myself”

 

Fixed Mindset: “I feel like feedback is personal”
Growth Mindset: “I feel like feedback is constructive”

 

Fixed Mindset: “If you succeed, I feel threatened”
Growth Mindset: “I’m inspired by the success of others”

 

Fixed Mindset: “My abilities determine everything”
Growth Mindset: “My effort and attitude determine everything”

 

I hope these examples get you thinking. One of the most valuable things you can do is take a good look at how you think on a day to day basis. Understand that YOU have total control over your thoughts AND your results.

Focus On Personal Powe

Focus On Personal Powe
Every martial artist who trains consistently achieves personal power
by increasing their potential power. By applying potential power
in a positive way, they enhance their ability to improve their own
lives and the lives of people around them. It is this application of
potential power in a positive way that gives us the greatest personal
power.
 
Power means many different things to many different people. Some
people find power in their authority over others, while others find
power through their ability to influence other people.
 
In the martial arts we develop many different kinds of power.
 
External Power comes to us through the building up of our bodies
by training in our techniques. Internal Power comes to us through
the sharp mental focus that is achieved from martial arts training.
Maximum personal power comes by balancing the internal and
external. It is this balance that helps us reach our full potential for
personal power.
 
The appearance of personal power and the achievement of
personal power are very different, and balance is the key to true
personal power.
 
Does financial power equal personal power? Only if the individual has a balanced life. A person who is very wealthy may appear to have great personal power. But if they work so many hours to
achieve wealth that they do not have time to spend with their family, then they lack true personal power.
 
Does physical power equal personal power? Physical power must be matched with mental power. A strong person with a weak mind is not powerful. A person with a strong mind and a weak body
also does not have personal power. Only when a balance exists between physical power and mental power does a person have true personal power.
 
Does a person with a strong mind and body have personal power? Yes, if they also have moral power. You cannot achieve true personal power if you do wrong by others through your poor moral actions. A strong mind and body must act in a moral way to achieve total balance and true personal power.
 
Reach your maximum potential power. Achieve Personal Power. Focus on creating balance in your life and you will reap the many rewards of Personal Power.
 
Personal Power
