Mindset is important in class. When you are in the right mindset you can make great strides in training and development. You are open for inspiration.
What if you’re not in the right mindset??? It’s even more important to put that uniform on and get on the mat or zoom. Whether the chicken or the egg came first, you’ve got to have one to get the other. Getting on the mat can help melt away all those other stresses in life and work. Especially when you’ve been cooped up in your house for 5 months. Just get on the mat and start to train and your mindset will come.
It’s not just your mindset that will get you there, it’s also your perseverance. Just keep going. Everyone, even masters, have trouble sometimes being in the right mindset. I heard Mr. Koeppel once say to someone that had asked how he kept doing it for all of these years. He said “Just put on your uniform, and do it”.
