Martial Arts Life Lesson: Developing a Growth Mindset
How to Develop a Growth Mindset
“If it’s to be, it’s up to me!”
Orlando, FL–Every successful person in any area of life and work has a growth mindset, meaning they focus on progress not perfection.
They understand that to get to the next level, they have to work for it and sometimes it’s hard, but it is worth it. So do you have a growth mindset?
We have to understand that anything worth achieving will not be easy, but as martial artists, we’re up for the challenge.
While others quit, we keep going because we know that pain is part of the training and it’s also part of achieving success.
How to Help Students Develop a Growth Mindset
If you want to be a good student, it will require that sometimes you will be studying while others are playing.
If you want to get strong and flexible, it will require that you exercise, even when you don’t feel like it. While everyone else is eating ice cream, you’re eating fruit to stay healthy.
If you want to become a black belt, you do not miss class and on the days that there is no class, you practice 20-minutes a day.
That is how you take a growth mindset and apply it for success in your life.
