Fear of Failure

Holiday Closures Reminders

* FightClub will be closed on Friday June 30th & Saturday July 1st for the Canada Day long weekend *

AFRAID OF SUCCESS?

Don’t laugh it’s a big problem for many people! All crave success, and virtually everyone wants to succeed. However, there is a major obstacle many face when pursuing success — FEAR!

Fear can be described as a two-edged sword that can propel one for success at the same time it can be an instrument for one’s downfall or failure. Over the next three weeks we will be looking at a few things that might be responsible for your fears and active steps to be taken to conquer them all.

Have you experienced the feeling that you get when you see a successful person, that feeling of wanting to be like them? where you judgmental on how they achieved their success? That feeling is normal but one thing I realized from years of training is that many tell their stories as a journey of being relentless, countless hours of unseen hard work and consistency. Successful people take the bull by the horn and work towards achieving success. Success is usually never given on a platter of gold; it is something you work towards every single day.

REASON NUMBER 3 – WHY YOU ARE AFRAID

Fear of failure: No one likes to fail. Failure has no friends. Nobody identifies with failure. Due to this, the fear of failure remains deep in everyone’s heart even in the so-called successful ones. The fear that they might one day be pushed out of the top, therefore they do everything in their power to see that they maintain the number one spot. Statistics has it that the chances of failure are greater than chances of success but that notwithstanding success is still possible if only you can work towards it. Conquering this particular fear is straightforward, all you have to do is channel your positive energy towards what you have in mind to achieve rather than having thoughts you will fail. You are not a failure you are a conqueror.

There is a t-shirt I saw years ago that said it best… “You win, or You Learn”. If you have this attitude embedded into the very fabric of your soul then you will be able to handle the fear of failure. Students and friend alike often ask me how I ‘got so good’? or ‘learned so much’? My answer is always the same… Because I lost and learned a lot.

Like all things you need to practice them to get good. So apply this going forward during your Systema training at FightClub.

Fear of Pressure

AFRAID OF SUCCESS?

Don’t laugh it’s a big problem for many people! All crave success, and virtually everyone wants to succeed. However, there is a major obstacle many face when pursuing success — FEAR!

Fear can be described as a two-edged sword that can propel one for success, at the same time it can be an instrument for one’s downfall or failure. Over the next three weeks we will be looking at a few things that might be responsible for your fears and active steps to be taken to conquer them all.

Have you experienced the feeling that you get when you see a successful person, that feeling of wanting to be like them? where you’re judgmental on how they achieved their success? That feeling is normal but one thing I realized from years of training is that many tell their stories as a journey of being relentless, countless hours of unseen hard work, and consistency. Successful people take the bull by the horn and work towards achieving success. Success is usually never given on a platter of gold; it is something you work towards every single day.

REASON NUMBER 2 – WHY YOU ARE AFRAID

Fear of pressure: Sometimes we are faced with the pressure from family and friends of having to impress every time they come around or when your teacher is watching you during training. The fear and pressure can be so intense that happiness leaves you, increases anxiety, and lowers self esteem which is one of the major factors that contributes to failure. Hardly do you achieve success in a hurry or under pressure. To conquer this fear simply do yourself the favor of appreciating your little efforts and little success as this boosts your chances of achieving great things. Tell yourself there is no good in rushing, after all, the popular saying goes thus: anything worth doing is worth doing well.

You can often hear me in class reminding students to breathe, move and stay relaxed. This is not just a nice idea, there is great power when someone connects breathing, movement and calmness. Systema training at FightClub progressively builds pressure on students and continually reenforces the principles that reduce anxiety and increase self esteem. Students are challenged, in a positive way.

Like all things you need to practice them to get good. So apply this going forward. Stay tuned for reason number 3 next week….

Fear of Judgements

AFRAID OF SUCCESS?

Don’t laugh it’s a big problem for many people! All crave success, and virtually everyone wants to succeed. However, there is a major obstacle many face when pursuing success — FEAR!

Fear can be described as a two-edged sword that can propel one for success and at the same time it can be an instrument for one’s downfall or failure. Over the next three weeks we will be looking at a few things that might be responsible for your fears and active steps to be taken to conquer them all.

Have you experienced the feeling that you get when you see a successful person, that feeling of wanting to be like them? Were you judgmental on how they achieved their success? That feeling is normal but one thing I realized from years of training is that many tell their stories as a journey of being relentless, countless hours of unseen hard work, and consistency. Successful people take the bull by the horn and work towards achieving success. Success is usually never given on a platter of gold; it is something you work towards every single day.

REASON NUMBER 1 – WHY YOU ARE AFRAID

Fear of judgements: Most of the times our opinions about how others achieved their success become the root of our fears. The negativity in your judgments of others success has been what in one way or another affecting us. This simple key means that the thought of being judged the same way we judge others forms the basis of our fear of success. Therefore it is advised we jubilate and celebrate with others in success because surely one good turn deserves another. This is the key to conquering this particular fear.

So if someone you know accomplishes something great, be happy for them. Genuinely happy too! People can feel when it is not! This is the internal work that most people don’t want to look at because its too hard. Systema training at FightClub incorporates internal and external work in such a way that each student grows on both levels. Like all things you need to practice them to get good. So apply this going forward. Stay tuned for reason number 2 next week….

Outdoors activity is great for the mind

Category : FC Club News

Hey FC Crew,

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as summer sunshine by staying indoors.

An increasing amount of research shows outdoor activity is great for the mind. Exercising amongst trees and wildlife can give you a healthy mood boost and can help to combat anxiety and stress. Bonus points if you take your shoes off to feel the grass on your feet.

With the Outdoor Systema Seminar for FightClub fast approaching I hope all of you attend and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for accelerated learning.

I have always believed that seminars training is an integrated part of ones SYSTEMA learning and development. Information gathered at these events just has a lot more time to sink in over 5 hours.

Register at systema@fight-club.ca today!

Looking forward to see all of you there!

Get some Vitamin-D – Outdoor Seminar

Category : FC Club News

Hey FC Crew,

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as summer sunshine by staying indoors.

Sunshine (Vitamin D) we get from exposure to the sun has awesome benefits (when you do it in moderation, obviously). Its a common treatment for depression and other mood disorders. Unsurprising really when you think about how fabulous you feel when you step into sun rays. Endorphins (which lift your mood) are released by the body when you get some sun. Yahoo!
