Belief is having the “YES I CAN” attitude always and no matter what. It is the ability to see the invisible and look beyond the obvious. Belief is the total commitment to a goal (like earning a black belt in martial arts, or making an A in a school subject) so that no possibility of any end, other than the desired one, exists.
Belief is our inner power used with our core values towards the fulfillment of our goals. Absolutely everything we do in our lives, in fact, is based on our beliefs. Every action we take, every decision we make, and every single thing we do stems from what we believe. If we believe this, we do that; if we believe something else, we do something different.
We learn most of our beliefs in our community, environment or the country we grow up in. We learn them mostly from our parents, teachers and mentors.
At All Star ATA Martial Arts, we dedicate an entire cycle to focus on the life skill of “Belief.” Reminding our students that Belief means “YES I CAN!” and that we must believe in ourselves to accomplish any task. All Star ATA students of all ages have the “YES I CAN” attitude towards everything they do!
