  • Stand Tall and Feel Strong

    Stand Tall and Feel Strong

    “Our nonverbals govern how we think and feel about ourselves. Our bodies change our minds.” -Amy Cuddy Power poses activate what psychologists call the behavioral approach system, which increases our feelings of strength and decreases feelings of fear. At The Growth Dojo our students constantly perform a “Posture Check” throughout class.

Respectfully, Coach Mark ....

Black Belt Champions perceive adversity as an advantage. This mindset allows us to see the good in challenging times and make the best of what we have. Enjoy the story Growth Warrior!

  • How do you see yourself?

    How do you see yourself?

    Self-esteem is the single most significant key to a persons behavior. Zig Ziglar said, “It’s impossible to consistently behave in a matter and inconsistent with how we see ourselves. We can do very few things in a positive way if we feel negative about ourselves.” Zig has a very practical, commonsense wisdom that he has shared with people for years. But experts in the field agree with his assessment. Nathaniel Braden, a psychiatrist and expert on the subject of self-esteem says, “no factor is more important in people’s psychological development and motivation than the value judgments they make about themselves. Every aspect of our lives is impacted by ....

  • Adversity Provides Greater Opportunities

    Adversity Provides Greater Opportunities

    Adversity Provides Greater Opportunities I believe that eliminating problems limits our potential. Just about every successful entrepreneur I’ve met has numerous stories of adversity and setbacks that open doors to greater opportunity. For example, in 1978 Bernie Marcus, son of a poor Russian cabinet maker in Newark, New Jersey, was fired from Handy Dan, a do it yourself hardware retailer. That prompted Marcus to team with Arthur Blank to start their own business. In 1979 they opened The first store in Atlanta, Georgia. It was called Home Depot. Today, Home Depot has more than 760 stores and hiring more than 157,000 people; they have expanded the business to include ....

  • Adversity Is Your Advantage

    Adversity Is Your Advantage

    Psychologist Dr. Joyce Brothers asserts, "The person interested in success has to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top." Nothing in life breeds resilience like failure and adversity. A study in Time Magazine in the mid 1980's described the incredible resilience of a group who had lost their job three time because of plants closing. Psychologist expected them to be discouraged, but they were surprisingly optimistic. Their adversity had actually created an advantage. Because they had already lost a job and found a new one at least twice, they were better able to handle adversity than people who had only worked for one company and found ....

  • Motivate Then Dedicate

    Motivate Then Dedicate

    The hallmark of excellence, the test of greatness, is consistency. -Jim Tressel "I am a big believer in motivation and encouragement. But here’s the truth when it comes to personal growth: Motivation gets you going, but discipline keeps you growing. It doesn’t matter how talented you are or how many opportunities you receive. If you want to grow, consistency is key. If you want to become more disciplined and consistent in your performance, you need to become more disciplined and consistent in your growth. I sometimes see people who know their purpose yet are inconsistent in their progress. They have the ambition to succeed and they show aptitude for their job, yet ....
