Everyone Has a Plan

Everyone Has a Plan

I have heard this said and was reminded of it one-day last week. "Everyone has a plan 'til they get punched in the mouth." If 2020 has taught us anything it is that this statement has a lot of truth to it. I started the year with a plan to grow my business and continue with my day job as a martial arts instructor at a local charter school. Then came Covid-19 and one of those needed to pivot quickly and the other went away with half of my monthly income. That hurt! I had a plan, I got hit in the mouth and my plan went away. 

Plan B was to continue growing the dojo and receive unemployment benefits until I could find another day job. I have applied for unemployment benefits, been accepted, had the benefits card sent to me two times, and had to apply a third time. Ouch, that hurt! I have believed that I would receive the advance from SBA for the last 4 months. Ouch, another set back. Every plan I have laid, hoped for, or thought would happen has not. I am not being negative here. I know everything will work out in the end. My point is everyone has a plan. We all get hit in life. Do we take responsibility for getting hit or do we blame, make excuses, and run in fear? 

Standing, taking responsibility and persevering are things that I learned from my training in the martial arts. When we spar I always have a plan or something that I am working on. When everything seems to be going well and I am working on my plan, BANG! I get hit and have to make an adjustment and change or adjust what I am doing. Life is often filled with redirections, changes, of course, going around instead of over, and sometimes abandoning the path for a time in order to regroup. We teach students to deal with difficulty, to handle trouble and manage conflict, bullies, and life's struggles.

We teach people of all ages and skill levels. Check out our great training deals!
