  • Motivational Quote of the Week: May 21st to the 27th

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "Watch your thoughts they become words. Watch your words they become actions. Watch your actions they become habits. Watch your actions they become habits. Watch your habits they become character. Watch your character it becomes your destiny.” -Lao Tzu We're creatures of habit and the way we think, speak, act and go throughout our day create the character that'll determine our destiny. We must be aware of how we think and act, not allowing old habits that might've been formed while we were young to run our lives. All of us might carry a habit or two we might not be proud of, however the amazing thing about habits is they can be changed. ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "A lesson without pain is meaningless. That’s because no one can gain without sacrificing something. But by enduring that pain and overcoming it, you shall obtain a powerful, unmatched heart.” -Edward Elric Life without pain is an impossibility and must be accepted in a productive manner. No worthwhile goal can be achieved without experiencing a certain level of discomfort. The reward we get internally from achieving a goal partially comes from the sacrifices we made to achieve them. As well, the pain we endure creates a stronger mental and physical fortitude for future endeavors. The more discomfort we’re willing to take, the ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week:
    "We all must suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret." -Unknown
    Pain is an unavoidable aspect of our lives, but we have the ability to choose the type of pain we want to experience. A lot of times we innately want to avoid pain because our brains our wired to keep us safe. However, pain is an essential part in improving ourselves. The easiest example is the pain we feel when we workout and develop more strength. Building strength is impossible to happen unless we are willing to sacrifice pain for it. You must make a conscious effort in choosing pain/stress that'll benefit you in the short or long term. Realize there ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "When you play it too safe, you’re taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we’re given.” -Barbara Sher I’ve stated this idea many time before and I shall state it again, time is your most precious currency. Time is the one aspect that’s required to gain improvement, wealth, gratification and many sources of happiness. There must be a balance between spending your time on improving your life (fulfilling responsibilities) and keeping your mind/body healthy. Too much time spent on only one of these can hinder your progress and overall happiness. Remind yourself that each day offers you a nonrefundable ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates If you want to have constant improvement in your life, you must be willing to work on what's new and difficult. If you make a habit of working on the usual, you will still get better at it. However, overtime you eventually stagnant and progress will come to a halt and you'll only be maintaining that certain level of skill, instead of building upon it. A simple example could be your willingness to improve your Roundhouse Kick, instead of practicing it one way like kicking a heavy bag. You can perform the kick in different ways you ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week:
    "Everything you want is on the other side of fear." -George Addair
    Every great reward requires some sort of sacrifice and that usually is enduring a certain level of fear and overcoming it. Not only do you get the satisfaction of completing a goal, but you also discover an increase of your human potential. Realizing the fear you once felt so terrified of was only a limitation you placed upon yourself. Fear is usually associated to venturing into the unknown, an example of this can be the very first time you sparred someone. At that point you've never experienced someone whose intention was to strike you, it was a new and unknown experience. Upon ....

  • Motivational Quote of the Week: April 2nd to the 8th

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." -Leo Tolstoy Humans are innately social and make us more inclined to help others than ourselves. Not only does helping others give us a sense of gratification and is a moral good, but it also allows us to avoid ourselves. We sometimes help others to forget about our problems and goals to relieve the stress we feel from them. Creating a habit like that can be dangerous and hinder your ability to better your life. The key is balance and prioritizing your needs first before addressing someone else's. If you're mentally and physically unwell you can't expect to help someone ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: “Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.” - L.R. Knost One of the simplest truths we must accept and learn is that life isn’t all pleasant as we might want it to be. Within our lifespan we’ll most likely have an array life experiences ranging from laugh tearing happiness to ....
