With this week’s St Jude Kick-A-Thon, we each have a great opportunity to give.  As many of you know, St Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world.  We are proud to be aligned with an organization that gives help to so many children with life threatening illnesses.  It feels amazing when giving to others and not expecting anything in return.  Most of the time, we think of monetary gifts that mean the most.  I’ve found that some of the most rewarding gifts included the gift of time, love, listening, sharing, etc.  My encouragement for all  [ Read More ]

Came across a quote this morning that I absolutely love.  I’m not a golfer, but Arnold Palmer nailed it.  He said, “It’s a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get.” It’s so true.  A lot of times we expect to improve by slipping into auto pilot.  It never happens.  Successful people do the work that others are not willing to do.  Simply put, hard work works.  If you struggle with practicing outside of class, start with small steps.  Everyone has 5 minutes.  I know this is a message that we have all heard, but if you want  [ Read More ]

Focusing on being successful is a large part of what we teach and live at the PTSDA Karate.  Even with all the positive thinking and action, we all face failure.  When we don’t make the team or we lose our job, our spirits can get low really fast. In my humble opinion, our failures make us who we are.  It is inevitable to fail at something, but it’s what we do after the event that makes all the difference. The late Zig Ziglar would often say, “Failure is an event, not a person.”   I truly believe this idea. So if  [ Read More ]
