One thing our tae kwon do training teaches us is how to set goals and that it takes hard work to achieve that goal. If you ask someone what a goal is you will probably get the answer that it is something you want or something you have to get done. This is correct, but it is missing one very imporant part. It is missing a deadline! It is missing a date or time as to when you want to accomplish it. Everyone has had something they needed to do and the deadline was the only thing that motivated them to take action and get it done. On the other hand we have all said we wanted to do something around the house and we just never got around to it. Why did this happen? Did you giver yourself a deadline? If you do not have a deadline set on something you want to accomplish then you do not have a goal, what you have is a wish. Our training gives us clean cut goals, we know exactly what we need to learn to reach the next level, and each student knows when they are supposed to test for their next rank. Having that deadline is so important in everything we do in life. We teach our students the BLACK BELT SUCCESS CYCLE. 1- Know what you want 2- have a plan 3- and a success coach 4- take consistant action 5- review your progress 6- and renew your goals. Something might happen that will cause you to have to adjsut your deadline, which is fine. But you have a new deadline. Use this and trust me, it will help.
