A Talk You Must Have With Every Parent in Your School About Black Belt

Let’s talk about GRIT, the tenacity, and the ability to persevere. 

We as parents work so hard to provide for our children and the most important thing that we must provide for or children are to ensure their success as an adult.

How is it done? 

The way how we instill character. One of the most important things we have to focus on is teaching our children tenacity. The only way through that is grit. 

Now, how do we instill the value, in every opportunity that you get when your child starts something and they fall into the gap which is wanting to quit or no longer interested? If it’s not completed, it is your job and responsibility to make sure they finish.

What makes the biggest difference is YOU. Your own grit, tenacity, and character will be put to test. 

We are directly tied to our children’s well-being, as a parent, it’s in our nature to provide for our children emotionally and physically. So, when they are stressed out or no longer want something, it’s our natural instinct to relieve that pain.

This is something that we have to realize as parents and put our will to the test which is the most difficult thing to do – to force our children, but we have to enforce what’s in their best interest. 

It will be an emotional fight, it will impact your feelings because the most difficult and painful thing to see is the pain of our child. But, you have to get mentally focused on what’s in their best interest and emotionally not get involved to a point where you make a decision on your emotions. 

This is one of the most common things we see here at parks because, in the beginning, everything’s great especially when our children are having a great time, they’re getting progress, they’re getting their belts and they see the possibility of them becoming a black belt, they want to be like their instructors then the excitement wears off, then sooner or later the child realizes that what they thought is becoming difficult and challenging. 

This is when you as a parent have to really fight your own weaknesses, to help your child overcome the setback they are experiencing. The parents that stay focused, and determined their children will succeed. 

Because it’s a reflection of their character, willpower, and enforcement of what’s in their child’s best interest. 

If we constantly relieve the pressure, and pain subconsciously we are letting them know that rescue will always be there. They have to tough it out on their own. The sooner we teach them this value, the higher chances they will have of becoming a successful human beings.

How I Do This One Thing Consistently That Sets Our Schools Apart From Others in Town

If you do this it can make a difference in your school. 

The aesthetics of your school. 

When the parent walks into your school and sees your school they will have a predetermined notion and it is affected by the subconscious mind. 

It is the smell, sight, and sounds. These three essences give the potential lead and prospects a predetermined thought of your school.

One of the things I always make sure of is the smell of my school. 

Some schools probably stink, and I challenge you to invite a friend or someone you know that has never been to your academy and ask them to be honest with you and have them feel your school and how does it smell – gym odor, sweat odor, or foot odor. 

If they say yes, go to Amazon and order an air ozone ionizer – it is a little machine that shoots negative ions to the air that destroys odor bacteria. 

Next, the sight. Does your school have better lighting, does it shine like the sun in your school or does it have a feel of gloominess and darkness. 

Lastly, the sound. What are they hearing? Do they hear crickets or pleasant background music?

You need to have a sense of change in your school. 

We have one particular wall in our headquarters that we dedicate to paint it black and every several months we will put a one-word and want the students to be inspired by it. 

For example the word “grit” and what it means and a completely different world in the next several months.

This will create an impact and emotion on your school. 

A lot of the schools in the area stink. 

This will separate your school from the rest of the schools in your town – make your school beautiful.
