It’s awesome to see high level martial artists train and continue to get better and better. What they do is rather simple when you think about it.
They show up every day. They do their martial arts training, they eat right, and they drink lots of water. They are on track with their supplements.
At the end of the day, what they do is simple, but somehow, it’s not easy.
Why is it that some people can be so consistent and continue to grow while others slide along laterally, never making progress?
I believe it lies in their attitude. Champions look at training as something they get to do, not something they have to do. They get excited about the idea of getting on the mats, learning, growing, and getting better.
They love the feeling they have at the end of a workout, and they think about how they are going to feel at the end of their workout before it begins.
Champions get fired up about their goals and they know that every time they get that workout in, they are one step closer to that next stripe, belt, or goal weight.
How do you feel Monday morning when it is time to get your week started?
Are you dragging your feet saying, “I hate Mondays!” or do you wake up excited because Monday is the start to the week and you get the chance to crush it?
Zig Ziglar says, “Your attitude determines your altitude.” Your attitude about what you do all day long will determine how successful you become.
One thing I can say for sure is being positive doesn’t guarantee success but being negative guarantees failure.
What can you do to shape your attitude? The biggest thing you can do is decide that you are going to be enthusiastic about your goals and training. Decide that you will have the “get to” mindset and not the “have to” attitude.
