I've loved my fitness kickboxing experience! John knew my name when I arrived and made sure to see if I was comfortable the whole class. The instructors were so helpful and welcoming! Can not wait for the next class.

The Mindset – Anything and Everything is Possible.

Anything and Everything is Possible;

Yes – Anything and Everything is Possible!  This is the mindset we need to be in. We need to truly believe that anything and everything is possible, because without that belief, we are going to be stuck in a life full of doubt, negativity, suffering, and depression. Filled with I wish I would have or I should have had mindset.  So we need to change our view — “Our eyes can only see and our ears can only hear what our brain is focused on”.

We are not meant to just walk through life and aimlessly wander through around this world. We are not meant to wake up and go through a routine to see what happens. If you do that you are not attracting the life you want you are settling and accepting the life that is in front of you.  If you live this way  you can’t be surprised nor get angry over the same old things reoccurring, or saying things to yourself like – “Oh, well. That’s just my life.” “See I am not meant for anything other than this” Or “Oh well that is how my luck runs”. No No No — Life isn’t supposed to be something we just “make it through”. Life is about living and being who we are to the fullest.  

I think Rocky said in Balboa something like  “Life ain’t all sunshine and rainbows” but you know what — it is also not all dark and gloom.   Accept the good and accept the not so good. Life has lessons but those not so good moments/lessons don’t define us. Use them as teacher of life but as the same time don’t take up residency there in that lesson.  Move on and move up.   Accept those lessons as to what they are and that is lesson for the moment to improve for the future.  One of our Mantra’s here at JGMAA – “Progress not Perfection.” At each initial and parting bow on to the mats at our Academy our kids say  “be my best.” Be the best you can be at the moment and keep on going.

Life is just as much as a journey on the inside as it is outside, and more so. Life is what you make it, so make it an adventure, make it your dream, make it your life.  Make life happen for you not to you.

For fun — think of your life as a movie.  Everyday we have an opportunity to play out the movie in our life, read your script often (goals, affirmations) know your character, act it out each scene, (take action each and everyday)  overcome the villains, overcome the odds, overcome the struggle and come out victorious – win! Be the Hero of your own real life movie.
