The Power Of Who

The Power Of Who

Dear Friend,


I trust this blog finds you well.

Embracing an identity is paramount to peak performance in all endeavors.

If your heart and spirit are not committed to the things you invest your time in, you are wasting it.

When you observe people who get the greatest results and enjoy the most fulfillment, you will notice a common denominator.

Effective people know who they are, because they decide who they are.


Principle of Achievement #1 - Decide Who You Are


‘Who’ is always more important than; what, where, when, why, with, how, etc. 

Your identity is enhanced or diminished by your thoughts and actions. 

When it comes to your identity, be deliberate - not delusional. 

Protect it.

Keep your identity appropriate to your activity. 

For example, a surgeon playing basketball is as ineffective as a basketball player doing surgery. 

A person can be both a surgeon and a basketball player, no doubt about it. 

However, it is best to embrace the identity that best serves the situation. 

I highly recommend that you become a Martial Artist, instead of just doing Martial Arts. 

We look forward to seeing you and your family in class at the Dojo.
