Are You Ready For The Test?

It’s test week at KMMA!

My team and I will kick it off today!


And students have been training hard, so I know they’ll do well!

Our tests aren’t easy.

They’re physically, mentally and emotionally challenging.


But here are the facts of that:

1. if the student has been making their classes regularly, and training seriously in them, they are prepared and will do well.

2. every test makes the student better and moves them one step closer to Blackbelt- the ultimate test.

3. if they pass, they level up…


And the same process is true for the tests of life.

1. We need to prepare for them before we take the test.

2. the challenges, trial and tribulations of life make us stronger if we know how to let them…

3. I have come to discover that many things are a test to see if we are ready to level up. 


God won’t promote us to a higher level until we prove that we’re ready for it. 

At least that’s what I’ve learned in my own life.


Now here are three of the ways that we prepare for the tests of life:

1. Input only the right data and programing into your personal operating system. Read, watch and listen to positive personal development material and protect your mind from all the negative.

2. Do hard things! Read this from Daily Stoic. 

Thanks for sharing it Dr. Mike!

3. Get in the right tribe. First, who we associate with is one of the prime indicators of how prepared we’ll be and, second, the right tribe- like, dare i say, the one at Krav Maga Martial Arts, will help you accomplish # 1 and 2 and prepare for the inevitable trials and tribulations of life, encourage you in the test and cheer you on when you level up!
