Confident and Positive Mindset PDF Print E-mail

Having a confident and positive mindset means a lot to a person’s success. As a black belt, when you walk into the martial arts training facility, you need to feel like a black belt. Lack of confidence can be felt by others.  This same principle applies everywhere in life.  Chad C. Carmack, Ed. D.

Leadership Essential – Helping Others PDF Print E-mail

It was inspiring to see students in our class sharing ideas with peers. As we prepared for the August testing, I observed many situations where adults and youth shared skills. This type of leadership makes a difference.  

Caring attitudes and leadership behaviors are contagious. When you give knowledge to someone, it is rewarding to see the information ripple forward when that person shares with others.

Dr. Chad C. Carmack

Unleashing Unlimited Life-Opportunities PDF Print E-mail

We describe ki as:

.  intrinsic energy
.  power of the mind and body
.  life force - breath   

We know that ki influences the ability to stay life-centered. Ki awareness and application requires time and effort.  

The ultimate benefits of our training come when physical principles combine with mind principles.

Morihei Uyeshiba, grandmaster of Aikido, described ki as "spirit of love and protection for all things" or "spirit of peace." Carrying the "spirit of peace" can be learned and can unleash unlimited life-opportunities.

Chad C. Carmack, Ed. D.

Our Response Should Be ... Get the Poison Out PDF Print E-mail

It is not what others do or even our own mistakes that hurt us the most; it is our response to those things. Chasing after the poisonous snake that bites us will only drive the poison through our entire system. It is far better to take measures immediately to get the poison out. Source: Franklin Covey
