1. Success Skill - Visualization:
    Winning Black Belts learn to practice, mentally rehearse, and visualize the successful outcome of activities. The mind cannot
    tell the difference between what is real and what is vividly imaged. They learn to pre-play and re-play performance to anchor success
    and eliminate failure. Winning Black Belts learn to control their physical and mental state and create an ability to maintain relaxed
    alertness and to maximize their flexibility and ability to respond quickly and appropriately.
  2. Success Attitude - Positive Self-Expectancy & Goals Attainment:
    Winning Black Belts learn to have an overall attitude of personal optimism and enthusiasm. Winners understand that life is a self-fulfilling prophecy – a person usually gets what he or she actively expects over the long run. Winners have HIGH EXPECTATIONS of themselves and work to achieve those outcomes.
  3. Success Skill – Positive Self-Talk
    Winning Black Belts learn to control their “inner dialogue.” They create a supportive conversation with themselves that support their goals and
    their energies.
  4. Success Attitude - Positive Respect
    Winning Black Belts has the ability to be happy and to function in the world, while showing appropriate conduct and good manners. Respect represents a sincere appreciation of values and the rights of other people. And respect
    themselves, avoid habits, and behaviors that are unhealthy or destructive.
  5. Success Skill - Total Self-Confidence:
    Winning Black Belts have the ability to accomplish anything they are willing to work to achieve. They are not intimidated by the negative reactions of others – nor, do they get mired in mediocrity. They rise above the crowd an achieve great heights.
  6. Success Attitude – Unshakable character & Personal Honesty
    Winning Black Belts know who they are and where they are going. They effect their environment rather than letting their environment effect them. They make decisions based upon their own moral compass not based
    upon the tides and whims of those around them. Events don’t alter their understanding of right and wrong or of truth and falseness. Winning Black Belts understand that honesty is more than simply avoiding lies. It includes a belief in, the pursuit of the truth. In order to have healthy relationships with other people, honesty must be present.
    Winning Black Belts take responsibility for their own actions.
  7. Success Skill – No Excuses
    Winning Black Belts accept 100% responsibility for the outcomes in their own life. Winners take credit or the blame for their own performance. They never “externalize” their failures – but, take responsibility for their own performance and results.
  8. Success Attitude - Positive Self-Motivation with Definite Commitment
    Winning Black Belts dwell on the rewards of success not on the penalties of failure. We always move in the direction of our currently dominant thoughts. Positive self-motivation arrives through visualizing
    your desires while limiting fears. Motivation also comes from focusing on the long-term results desired not the daily disappointments and struggles. “Whatever you can do, or dream you can…begin it. Boldness has
    Genius, Power, and Magic in it.” Do or Do not there is no try… Winners commit to their dreams and then work diligently and tirelessly to
    achieve them.
