If you knew someone who had 18 years of martial arts experience, was a 4th-degree black belt in 3 different martial arts & did stunts on a popular television show, I bet you’d think they were pretty good and maybe even one of the best in their field. What if I told you this person started competing at a national level while putting in lots of blood, sweat and tears every day training for it..and they came in dead last in every event they entered..for an entire year. In fact, they got beat by competitors with far less experience & much lower degrees of black belt.

What would you say to that?

Maybe they should have quit while they were ahead, right? Wrong. Instead, they sought out the top competitors to become their teachers. They learned what they were doing wrong & how to do it the right way. They learned what it took to become a champion. Two years later, they became the 2nd best all around competitor in the world & two years after that they won, not one, but two world
titles. Upon officially retiring from competition in 2006, they had compiled 11 world titles.

So what does this have to do with you? Let me be the first to tell you that failure is a good thing. It provides you with a learning experience that you cannot get anywhere else.

It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, what grade you’re getting or what line of work you are in..you’ll eventually fail at some part of it.

This will leave you with two options..you can quit or you can persevere through it.

People who fear failure ultimately quit before reaching their goal. They aren’t able to handle the feeling of it & the fact that things didn’t go the way they planned.
People who make failure their friend, welcome it. Why? Because they also know it’s not the end of the world & they can simply try again. They see failure as an opportunity to learn & grow from it.

What can you learn from this?

Make failure your BFF. Let it tell you where you went wrong so you can have a fresh start with a better perspective.

SuperParent 4 Life Hack #7: Face It Head On

One of the challenges with helping your child to be their best is the obstacles they will face on the road to getting there. It’s human nature to avoid things that are tough in our lives. Think for a moment about the times in your life that were extremely challenging. You survived, didn’t you? In fact as a result you probably learned a lot from the experience and it helped shape you into the person you are today. You may have become more mature, patient, tolerant, tenacious, understanding and tough as a result.

Of course, as a parent, you want your child to face similar challenges head on so they can develop many of the same character traits. So what’s the big problem here? Parents hate to see their kids suffer and when we do, we want to swoop in and save the day. But, that’s not going to help your child now, is it?

The next time you see your child facing a challenge, try out some of these SuperParent 4 Life Hacks...
+ Acknowledge their feelings.
+ Be supportive but not overprotective.
+ Let them take charge while you watch from the sidelines. Sometimes you’ve just got to let go and allow them to give their all on their own.
+ When facing a challenge, they may go into “fight-or-flight” mode which is completely normal. When that happens help your child problem-solve by brainstorming some possible solutions with them.
+ Refrain from bribing or threatening them. These solutions are very short lived and will ultimately do more harm than good.
+ Remember... every time you “rescue” your child they become more and more dependent on you. Be sure to liberate them and allow them to fail. Failure will teach them how to deal with and eventually overcome adversity.
+ Be your child’s biggest cheerleader. Tell them you believe in them.

Employ these priceless hacks and your child will definitely be on their way to being their absolute best.

Monday Motivation from the Mat:
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Team Up with Quality People
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
It has been said that you become like those you hang around most of the time. Associate with negative people who complain and gossip and you’ll find yourself living a miserable life. Surround yourself with positive people who live lives of passion and purpose and you’ll find yourself living a life full of happiness.

Professor Brannon Beliso (author, motivational speaker and martial artist) says you should, “Make it a priority to develop and nurture quality relationships. From your employees, to your mentors and friends, spend time with quality people.”

What is your definition of a quality person? How about someone who . . . is goal-orientated, giving, passionate, confident, a positive thinker, family focused, gives back to the community and has rock solid integrity.

Want to become great? Associate with people who possess the qualities of those you look up to and hope to be like. They should inspire you toward greatness by leading through example and giving constructive advice that helps you improve.

Question to Ask Yourself:
+ Who do I know in my life that is a quality person and would act as a great inspiration?
