"It is not the Critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Do you still want to be stuck in the same rut in 12 months time?
Do you know how little it would actually take to get from where you are to where you want to be?
Changing the things you need to in your life is not as hard as you think...it all comes from a place of belief...belief in yourself, belief in your strength and yes, even the belief that others have in you.
Where do you find that belief?
It's been said that the greatest levels of self confidence come from facing difficult challenges and overcoming them. You'll notice that this is true of pretty much anyone you consider to be successful - in business, in sport, or in life in general.
They're the people who are always putting their hands up for the difficult jobs. The ones who are always going out on a (some would say crazy! ) limb. The ones who challenge themselves constantly and strive towards being better every single time. The ones who fall - but who get back up, dust themselves off and fight on.
" A black belt is simply a white belt who kept turning up to training"
Hanshi John Taylor 8th Dan
Have you ever seen someone who is very successful in sport or in their career and thought...." Gee, their lucky."?
Let me tell you - luck has NOTHING to do with it.
Success is predictable. It's just a case of keeping turning up to training. It's a case of making a decision - a choice - and following through on the actions you know you need to take to turn the theoretical into a reality.
Do you want a black belt? It's already yours. IF... you keep turning up to training. That's relay ALL you have to do.
If your wondering 'yes, but how long will it take?" - You're asking yourself the wrong question. Because the answer is "as long as it takes." Make that decision now and that black belt is yours. No one who wants their black belt and who is willing to keep turning up to training until they get it, can fail. I 100% guarantee it.
Allow me to introduce myself - My name is Sabomnin Graham Campbell, 6th Dan black belt and the founder of Lotus Health and Fitness.
At Lotus Quantum Synergy we don't just award black belts - we create true martial artists, by providing you with access to the tools and techniques to shape and forever change the course of your life.
The syllabus at Lotus Quantum Synergy does not focus on "sports" martial arts- rather, you'll be trained in a variety of different styles of martial arts, traditional weaponry, meditation techniques, breathing exercises and the tradition, history and discipline of martial arts.
At Lotus Quantum Synergy we do not apply imaginary, exalted, fitness standards. We elevate the quality of life of ordinary people and focus on achieving your goals, based on your fitness and body type. WE believe that martial arts is for everyone - regardless of what you may believe is physically holding you back.
Our class operates under the philosophy of family - we work together as a group to set your goals, discover and develop your strengths and turn you into the best you that you can be.
Our class sizes are limited - we believe in ensuring that everyone gets personal attention and the ability to truly engage in the process. Where others focus on numbers for profit, Lotus takes small selected groups of students on a journey.
This is how we create well rounded martial artists who strive at all times to live with dignity and honour.
In the Dojang (training club) of Lotus Quantum Synergy - the journey to true martial artistry begins with a choice. you must choose to take the first steps on the path. These are the students we seek.
