Time To Make A Comeback – returning to martial arts after a long break
In reading Randy King‘s book, Selling Out To Your Level of Comfort, the section about setting goals started me thinking about many different things. One of these is how I look forward. I say this because I have found that when I want to get something done, I jump into the deep end and try […]
Motivation is nothing, discipline is the key!
Fall is the perfect time to get back to things that you loved doing. If you have been away from class for any length of time, here’s an article that fits completely! You don’t need to apologize, though. It is your life, enjoy all of it…but don’t leave us out!
