Ever hear a story start out that way? I have… I’ve heard some end well, and some end poorly. One of my friends from school had a bad story that started out this way… It ended with a bloody nose, black eye, and him needing 14 stitches in the back of his head. He got off easy. Here’s Mike’s story. The problem started over a girl… Mike was at the bar ordering a drink when he saw this attractive young lady next to him. Naturally, he started talking to her when all-of-a-sudden her boyfriend showed up. Usually this would be a simple misunderstanding, but not tonight. He tried talking to the guy, but it was too late, the JUICED-UP JUGGERNAUT heard enough and swung a punch at him. Mike was unaware and didn’t have his hands up and was knocked back against the bar… Almost unconscious, he swings back, hitting nothing but air, while the boyfriend PUNCHED him a few more times. He fell, hit his head on the bar and was knocked out. Luckily for Mike, the bouncers jumped in and took the jealous boyfriend away. Mike trains at our academy now… he tells me he wishes he learned our Kickboxing and self defence system a LONG TIME AGO! Give me a call on 07765202363 to book a 1 to 1 introduction session with one of our instructors. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Doesn’t everyone want to do something in their lifetime for which they will be remembered? Don’t you want a sense of permanence? Wouldn’t you like the world to know you “were there?” If the answer was “no,” why would there be passports or pictures or yearbooks or gravestones? I believe you were designed for action and achievement. When your actions are aligned with your higher purpose, you will possess boundless energy and enthusiasm. Your challenge is not often in the pursuit of leaving your signature, but in the development of the courage to decide where to leave it in the first place. Here are three steps that will help you:
How To Leave Your Signature Behind
Step 1: Create Your Vision
Every mark on history starts with a vision. In the case of the Arena at Pula, an Emperor had a vision thousands of years into the future. The only difference between him and you was perhaps the size of his vision.
What do you want to be remembered for? Until you ask this question, there is little chance of doing something great. Once you have answered this question, however, you have set a vision that can be the vehicle to put you on the path in the direction you need to go. Set goals.
Step 2: Define Your Mission
Did you ever get in the car, turn the key and not know where you were going? Although that might sound crazy, it is no crazier than waking every day with the same dreams and no map to get there. Once you understand what it is you want, you will need definitive plans on exactly how to get there. This step makes sure that you write the list that aligns with your vision. Make a plan of what you will need to do in order to achieve those goals.
Step 3: Chip Away Every Day
In order to leave something behind of note, you will have to take consistent action. This step is not only most critical, but the one that stops most people. Once you are in the car, have turned the key and have directions, your actions are the small presses on the gas pedal which will give you forward momentum. Taking small steps each day in the direction of your vision and mission will eventually get you there. The key in Step 3 is to just keep “chipping away.” Work towards your goals consistently every day.
You were designed to be great. You have limitless potential. You can choose to scratch the surface of history and do something iconic. My suggestion is that you scratch hard, scratch often and make that scratch across time as deep as possible so that the world will be unable to ignore your “signature.”
Don’t know where to start? A great place to get the motivation and direction you might be looking for is at Total Martial Arts.

Look at both sides of each sentence. Read the “Instead of,” until the comma. Does that person sound like someone you know?
Now read the “think about,” until the period. Does that sound like a person you would like to become?
The question is: Which way do you think?
The best news is that it is all under your control! In the end, your success (or lack thereof) will be a product of how you think…Cogito ergo sum. Control how you think, that will control how you act. Control how you act, that will control how you get.
The more you think positively, the better you will get at it. You have to find the time to do it. It you don’t think you have time, make time! I wish I could say it as poetically, but I will let Thoreau handle that:
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
Earl Nightingale once said, “You become what you think about most of the time.” If that is true, don’t waste your time thinking life should be easier, invest your time thinking about ways to be more valuable.
Food for thought!

#2. No Team or Support System
You’re a product of your environment and the people you surround yourself with… so why not surround yourself with the best?

In this day and age, where diet & weight related problems are so common in kids…
… I thought you’d like to know of a little “trick” that satisfies a kid’s sweet tooth…
… while keeping them healthy.
After all, diabetes, and being overweight, are mostly due to refined sugar and simple carbs like white bread.
======= So, here are TWO EASY CHANGES you can make to keep your kid healthy and sound. =======
1. Agave nectar.
The agave plant is seriously a gift from nature. It’s super-sweet, but DOESN’T make your blood sugar go crazy like refined sugar does (this is the major cause of weight gain and diabetes).
You can cook with it… use it instead of syrup on pancakes and French toast…
… and even make cookies and such with it.
The stevia plant is a no-calorie plant that also acts as a sugar substitute. It’s completely natural, and very healthy.
Like agave, it doesn’t impact your blood sugar levels either. And it’s not like Equal or Splenda – which are both processed and full of crazy chemicals.
======= Many people completely replace sugar with these products.
Or, they use these products to greatly REDUCE the amount of sugar their families use. =======
Hope you enjoyed this tip
