Episode #14 Three Ninja Tips For Life

Often times life presents us with unexpected and challenging opportunities. We have two choices: embrace the challenge or walk away. However, if we walk away we might be missing out on an incredible experience that can change the direction of our lives forever. In a good way.

Which is exactly what happened to me when I had the chance to begin training in Ninpo Tai Jutsu. What started as “I’ll take a few classes and quit” eventually resulted in becoming my teacher’s first female black belt.

Honesty, effort, and commitment are the first three traits of the ninja that I learned as a brand new martial arts student. However, these three little words have different practical applications to each and every one of us, both in martial arts training and life in general.

This episode outlines these three tips along with examples on how you can expand on these three ninja traits which you can apply to every single aspect of your life. It also encourages you take the first steps to get you out of your comfort zone, become a leader, a role model, or achieve anything that your heart desires.

I believe there is a black belt in each and every one of us, both literally and figuratively speaking. Download this episode, take those first steps, and unleash your personal power!
