The One Habit You Want to Avoid in Life
“The goal is not about what you accomplish. It’s about what you become!” – Michael Hyatt
A powerful statement and applicable to the process of earning a black belt as well as applicable in one’s life journey.
In the martial arts, the goal is to become a black belt.
This is the outward object that everyone sees.
What most do not see or understand is the path to achieving this goal included…
- Hours of hardwork
- Consistent Action
- And so much more.
Everyone faces challenges along the path to black belt as everyone faces challenges in life.
Many journeys are similar, and many journeys are different.
The common denominator for those who achieved the goal is these individuals had a great support network which encouraged them through challenging times. This support network went layers depth to reveal the truth behind why someone was giving up on the dream or the goal.
First impressions can be misleading. Of times when someone wants to quit an exercise program, a diet, a sport activity, there are a host of excuses covering the underlining challenge of self-doubt and fear of rejection. The self-doubt of “am I good enough?”, “everyone seems to be better at this them me.”, “I am too busy.”, “I have too much work to do”, and any other excuse. We all know what those excuses are. We hear them over and over again.
One habit you want to avoid is the habit of quitting because of self-doubt and fear.
More dreams are crushed because of self-doubt and fear!
Be true to your child and/or yourself and never quit due to self-doubt or fear (ignore the inner voice of excuses) as you travel along the path to achieving worthwhile goals and learn to become more!
