As 2019 comes to an end, we will see people making New Year’s resolutions for 2020. Let’s be honest, most people never stick to their resolutions. Why is this? Truth is we all have done it. I can say when I have failed and yes I failed in 2019 with some of my resolutions. It was because I had no process for those goals. So as you look at your goals for training, make them realistic. In 2019, you came in twice a week and now you are saying that in 2020 you will come in five times a week. I can deal with that, but what is your process? What do I mean by this? It is unlikely that you will start coming in 5 days a week off the get go and even if you do, will it be sustainable? Probably not. Now take that same goal and put a time line on it – by July I will be at the gym 5 times a week.  If you start increasing your attendance one extra class every week until you meet that goal, you will be more than likely to not only make your goal, but the most important part you will  keep that goal throughout the year.  So again, I say write those goals down, but go further – put a process to each goals and you will be more than likely to achieve those goals.

One of my goals this year for our academy is to help us get into a bigger gym by the end of the year. It will be a process and I have been working on it for some time. By the end of year we will have a future home for TBJJA.  Happy New Year’s to all of our students and once again thank you for choosing TBJJA as your training facility.
