Stealing the Thunder

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, 
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
 and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
 where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
 and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

 - Matthew 6:19-21,24


Greed is more a sin of thoughtlessness and convenience than of conscious avarice,
 though it is always an appropriation of moral power,
 a stealing of thunder

Is your greed corrupting your training ?

Your fitness / martial arts training performance is handcuffed by your attitude and confidence rather than your ability.
 Using imagery or visualization improves performance, reduces anxiety, and increases confidence.
A client recently told me due to job pressures they didn't feel as though they had any time.
Especially time to train....they were "stealing their own thunder."

Any thoughts we have are subconsciously converted into our actions.
Make sure your thoughts are not converse to your actions or goals. 
Your goals birth your dreams.

ACT AS IF

To further fuel your success as a martial artist, think about adapting.
 Instead of continuing to do what doesn't work.
Change will provide a host of new opportunities.
Learn new skills,
without new skills and knowledge we become complacent and lose confidence.
 Contribute....it will empower you and fuel your passion.


SHAKE IT UP

What you eat fuels your mind and body.
It keeps you on track to achieving your goals.
It's necessary to get the most amino acids out of the food you do eat.
 High-quality protein from animal sources is your best choice.
 Supplemental whey protein can help you achieve that large daily dose of protein.
 Ain't Skeered 
Some have actually made a habit of fear
The only way you to release the grip of fear is to make a conscious decision to step out of it.
 In order to make this work,
 You have to discover your hearts passion.
  Now train your mind to accept it as a goal that you have already achieved.
