Teach Your Child That They are Born to Win
Good afternoon. Everybody wanted to spend a couple of minutes today talking to you about self image. And this past week I’ve been giving out. One of my favorite books is the a big quotes from Zig Ziglar. I’ve been following zig Ziglar and Tony Robbins for probably 30 years now. I’m introduced to them in my twenties and I’m absolutely loved everything that a, that both of them have had to do, but today we wanted to talk about you were born to win, but to be a winner that you were born to be. You must plan to win and prepare to win then and only then can you legitimately expect to win. And so by doing this, what we’re talking about is why do you bring your kids to the karate class? It’s not about a sidekick. It’s not about their punch. It’s about giving them the proper self image to make them a winner.
By teaching them that there are no boundaries, that you’re only limited by your imagination, the imagination that you can do anything that you want to do and be successful at it are the key elements that are going to help your child become a true winner. And so what things are you doing to help foster that thinking at home? And again, a lot of times I hear parents talk about, well, no my, my kid can’t do that. Um, you know, I give them, well, how about they make their bed? Or How about they do this chore now? No, no, they can’t do that. You’ve got to be thinking positively and give your child wings. Let them fly, right? Don’t create the glass ceilings. Don’t put limitations on them. Don’t tell me what they can’t do. That’s the same thing that you hear in the karate school all the time.
Don’t tell me what you can’t do. You’re going to do this because I believe in you. And that’s basically my role as coach and mentor, that I’m going to continue to believe in you until you believe in you. And that’s what’s really going to make our next generation soar and be phenomenal leaders in the community. How many kids these days have that failure mentality? They’re afraid to try new things unless they can do it perfectly the first time. And so they don’t try things. So they’re automatically limited in what they’re going to be able to do. They’re going to have to listen to somebody else and you know somebody else is going to be their boss their entire life because they’re never gonna be able to lead. So those are the skills that we’re really focusing here in the karate school. And this is really what is the evolution of martial arts.
This is what we’re really focusing and really making a difference in all of our students’ lives to make sure that they’re successful. And the great country that we live in continues to be just that. You know, there’s a lot of competition. When we were young, it was simply the, the local competition for jobs. We’re in a global market now, right? We’re not competing against the person down the street or the other kids in the elementary school. We’re competing with kids from other countries and they’re focusing and working a lot harder than a lot of us are and I don’t want that for our niches. And I’m hoping you don’t either. So by making sure we start by giving our ninjas a positive self image, right? Telling them that they were born to win and they were made to win, but they do have to prepare and plan.
Now the next step is let’s give them that plan. Every single day we should be working towards a goal to make them a better winner and more successful. So start thinking about that. We’ve got about two weeks to a month before we go back to school. So with that in mind, what’s the school you’re going to hold? What’s it going to look like for you and your child? Right? Let’s make it as super awesome. You’re a not just a reactive here, so we’ll be talking about that in some future videos. It’s an awesome Friday. I’m going to be heading in and getting ready for classes today. If you would like a copy of the big quotes by Zig Ziglar, just leave a comment below and let me know, you know, please send me one and I’ll be happy to either drop it in the mail if you’re not local or you know, drop, give it to you the next time that you’re in karate class. Things like this are great models and get lots of great conversations started. So I’m very happy to help this and help you guys in any way I can. Let me know. Have an awesome Friday and we’ll talk to you guys soon.
