Everyone deals with challenges, obstacles, and difficulties in their life. Scheduling challenges, financial pressures, and work dilemmas are real concerns!
Kids deal with school and homework challenges, peer pressures, bullying, and much more.
The shoe rack theory is all about helping you deal with challenges in a more positive and proactive way.
When you leave your shoes in the shoe rack at the martial arts school, place all your worldly troubles in your shoes. This way you go on to the mat with a clear mind and can focus solely on your martial arts training. At the end of class, you hear a positive and uplifting class message.
Many times, after class your challenges are gone, minimized, or you are at least in a better frame of mind to deal with them. Your endorphins are flowing and you are feeling great!
Implementing this philosophy is simple to do but not always easy.
Challenge yourself the next time you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, come to class, put your problems in your shoes, and see how you feel when class is over.
