Do you have an entrepreneurial mindset for self defense?
Having a entrepreneurial mindset in regards to studying self defense. When something comes at you, you don’t just push back against it. You can see everything that comes at you as an opportunity. Faced with a challenge, you ask, ’how can I leverage this? How can I flow with this? Where is the opportunity in this?’
Natural ability requires a lot of time and dedication to what you believe what it will take to get you to your goal. To develop competence, it’s not about constantly looking for new things. It’s about developing a deeper level of understanding of insight, of the things you already know and do.
People often think of martial arts as training for physical fitness or self defense. There’s a bigger picture in the two. It’s training for life and know yourself.
Most martial art instructors in the US have an entrepreneurial mindset. Either to grow their schools or franchise. Sort of like tiger schulman.
Happy New Year 2017! I sure hope everyone had amazing holiday season filled with laughter, love and warm memories with family. Now it’s time to get busy. Now in the 2nd week of Jan 2017 no excuses but hard work and increasing income and most importantly your skills, whether it be self defense training, sports, mma, work, sales, etc. The point is to set your goal and get with it!
I have been working more than training the last year or so. Have to admit I miss the 4 to 5 days of training weekly. The advantage is dedicating more time into working and increasing my income. It doesn’t mean making a lot of money but conditioning the mind to focus on the objective. Wealth has different meaning to everyone. For me its a combination of multiple definitions. My goal is to condition the mind and delete old beliefs that no longer serve any purpose nor make any sense. Believe it or not this is aggressive training in one sense. On the other hand there is the martial arts training. As I get older and grow into what I love to do, my passion for movement and self defense I find less practicality in developing skill for intended purposes of fighting a waste of my time. Mainly because as you older its hard not to realize how necessary it is to limit wasting unnecessary energy on activities the yields no long term growth. Keep this in mind the harder you train and spar, fight or whatever you do tears the body, mind and psyche down. Strain that is irreversible. That’s the physical part, what about the mind and emotional components. Another blog in of itself!
