Your goals are not easy. They are, however, attainable, worthwhile and deserve your perseverance.
We have two main disciplines at Integrity Martial Arts: Tae Kwon Do and Yoga. Both are equally beneficial for your body and mind, both are fun, and both are challenging. No matter what your goals are though, you will have obstacles along the way. To keep yourself on your path you have to see your goal and focus on it. Your goal will become the only thing you see.
When people start to see the obstacles in their way, they start to see that they can not achieve the goal. Kids, work, time, energy, these become reasons they can not find success. What I suggest for everyone is to see the end goal. Once you focus on the end goal, the obstacles fade away and everything in between becomes the steps to get to the goal.
