The power of intent


Of all the blessings I am grateful for, one of the greatest is Intent.

Focused and applied Intent is a Super Power.

Intent is defined as a clearly formulated or planned intention : aim.

And it’s one of the great secrets of those that win.


We NEVER need be victim to our circumstances.

Some are, but that’s a choice. Life is always 10% what happens and 90% how we react to what happens.

This is a hard truth to swallow and not even popular today, but it’s true and those that embrace this truth, and learn to apply the Power of Intention to their lives become masters of it!


Today we begin Blackbelt Goal Setting Season at KMMA.

For the next 6 weeks I will be teaching how to harnass this Power using Goal Setting, Vision, PARRI (Plan, Act, Review, Renew and Improve) and other techniques, attitudes and attributes that EmPOWER us to go from where we find ourselves to where we want to be.

Students will also be setting, renewing and improving their own goals on the Quest to Blackbelt and Beyond!


I am fired up and can’t wait to spend this time with you!

We have 6 weeks not Holidays left to this year.

Together we will make them the BEST weeks of the year in preparation for the BEST year of each and all of our lives in 2021!

It won’t do it by itself- but it will with your intent and our help!


Dedicated to YOUR Success!
