My 14 year old son attends classes at a martial arts center. The martial arts center is run by a 30 year old man. He is by all means a successful business man for his young age. He stood in front of his class and asked them if they knew what the most powerful muscle is in their body was. There was not an answer. My thought was he would say your brain. When the 10 year old in front of me popped up and said ?My brain!.” We all chuckled. He went on to explain that the tongue is the most powerful muscle in your body.
This instructor is a man who works out in martial arts 6 days a week and he is a tower of power and flexibility. So it was strange to hear this response. So this grabbed the audience?s attention. He went on to explain what he meant to the young adults. ?By your own tongue you can tell yourself that you will fail or succeed. It is totally up to you.? He continued on to tell the kids that he believes much of life is what you tell your brain. He added ?You can choose to tell yourself that you can and you will or you can?t and you won?t.? He went on to say ?Believe in yourself. Set goals for yourself and you will achieve them. You can achieve anything you set your mind to. It is totally up to you. So set your goals high and work toward them.?
It is customary for the instructor to give a motivational speech at the end of the belt test. This instructor has always impressed me. He takes the time to greet each person by walking person and shake their hand firmly. He smiles and speaks positively to the kids and their families about their lives and dreams. He is encouraging and has been a mentor for many young adults in our community. When I see him, I can not help but think positive thoughts. Do you know someone like this?
It was important for me to hear his message. As I was sitting in the audience, I was playing a negative tape. So as I sat there I thought about how I could start replacing my negative thoughts with positive ones. You can begin simply by writing out sentences that turn the negatives in your life to positive.
