Making Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick: 5 Top Tips From The Experts

Posted: May 21, 2019

“New Year, New Me!” It’s a slogan that has become so familiar that it’s almost a cliche this time of year, with a torrent of jokes and memes on social media to drive the point home. Most people fail to keep their resolutions, often giving up completely by the time Summer rolls around. As many as 88% of resolutioners are said to abandon the change they sought in January, with as many as 43% lasting less than one month!

Respect, as they say, isn’t given.  It is earned.  But to earn it, you have to show it.Respect is one of the six life skills taught in the ATA Leadership Program and is also the life skill for July and August.  Like the other life skills, respect is developed and shown in different ways and is comprised of different principles.  But the primary thing, as with most important goals in martial arts and elsewhere in life, is that to develop and earn respect you have to work at it the way you work at perfecting your technique on the mat.


Summer Safety, Summer Fun!
