Achieving the rank of black belt is no easy task! In order to achieve your goal you need to be S.M.A.R.T! Here is a formula to help you set yourself up for success.

  • Specific- Know exactly what you want to accomplish
  • Measurable- Set check points along the way to ensure that you are making progress
  • Achievable- A goal should be challenging but not so far out of reach that you set yourself up for failure
  • Relevant- Meaningful goals align with your dreams and beliefs.They should relate to the attainment of your overall vision
  • Timely- Set a date to achieve your goal. From there you can chunk it down into bite sized pieces.

This week we are focused on the A or Achievable. We have a saying in the martial arts that setting a short range goal that you believe that you can achieve. Then, once you reach it you will be able to see a little bit further.&nbsp; Another saying that you might be familiar with is that inch by inch is a cinch; yard by yard can be very hard. Each of us has enormous potential and most goals are attainable if we simply develop the habit of using the S.M.A.R.T. formula.&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span>Be sure to LIKE our Facebook page to see more of our weekly student &ldquo;mat chats&rdquo; on a regular basis.
