I'm sorry for the lack of posts, I keep forgetting because I've been rushing home to catch Monday Night Football (GO NINERS!). This week, I chose a story from the movie "Catch Me If You Can" (see below) because with this weekend's grappling tournament in El Paso, I wanted to inspire the kids not to give up which just so happens to be our motto! We head out today and I'll do my best to keep everyone posted on our trip! Have a good weekend everyone and don't stop churning that butter! ;)
Today for , I made sure to preface things by letting the kids know that Floyd Mayweather is not the best role model for them to take after. He does, however, have some very admirable qualities that we could all learn from such as his desire to outwork every other boxer in the sport by applying his dedication, motivation, and passion for his craft. Floyd has his historic retirement fight in a few weeks against Andre Berto where he looks to finish his career with a remarkable record of 50-0. Watching his all access shows have always motivated me to train and that's what I was hoping to inspire in the kids today with this quote.
P.S. Keenan informed me after this quote that he believes in everyone in the whole world and I think we need more of that! :)
Usually Motivational Monday features sports quotes but since school started recently, I thought I'd pick a broader reaching quote. I chose this quote by Dr. Seuss to let our kids know that although they have the tools to be a fighter, they don't necessarily have to be that. They're the author of their own book and they can write it anyway they choose. I had one student say they wanted to be a mechanical engineer and another say they wanted to be a singer. Those are some big dreams and our kids have the power to achieve them.
For those of you that don't know, I (Tim Sosa), have taken up the duties as the striking coach of the Fit Kidz program every Monday and Wednesday. One of the things I have started doing and something the kids really look forward to is Motivational Monday. Every Monday, we end class about 5 minutes early to discuss a quote either I, or a student has brought in. The thought process behind this is to stimulate the students minds throughout the week in addition to their physical techniques. I like to break a mental sweat too in addition to my workouts. :) Having said that, I will be posting our quotes and my thoughts on it after practices on Mondays. Feel free to chime in, share, like or whatever floats your boat.
