Aaron Rashkin Black Belt

Not too long ago, after watching my son practice Tae Kwon Do at our local Do Jang, I chose to join him in his daily practice and enrolled myself into a three year program with our Master teacher.

At first, my goal was to become a black belt. Once I got going though, my focus began to change. You see, I saw young kids, even 9, 10, 11 years old, who wore black belts. And this is no small task, even for these young kids, however, through my training, I learned something very valuable.

Let me share this short story with you:

One night, at about 3 am, I woke up from a dead sleep thinking about how quickly I was progressing. I started out as a white belt, progressed to yellow, then orange, then purple, then green, then blue, then brown. Yes, I moved up seven belts in 8 months and to be quite honest, although I paid quite the price, I was concerned that I was moving too fast. Some people are worried that they were moving too slow, but I had the opposite problem. I pondered; was I really getting the proper training? Was I really getting good enough with the basic skills to progress this quickly? Did I really deserve to be a brown belt with such little time invested? Did my belt color really mean that I was as good as it looked?

These were the questions I was asking myself.

So, the next day, I approached my Master teacher and explained to him how I was feeling. His exact words to me were, “You are not moving fast enough. Your belt color doesn’t mean anything. Who wears the belt, means EVERYTHING. The real test, begins at Black.” I thought to myself, “wow”! The real test begins at the place where most people think it ends. My ultimate goal, was just the beginning of the journey.

And so this Home Based Business Success Tip was born for me.

I’d heard it for many years. I’ve even lived it in many ways, just never realized it until that moment.

“The top is just the start of a higher climb.”

What the caterpillar calls the end, the butterfly calls the beginning. The key then, as the late great Jim Rohn used to say…

” Do whatever you have to do, as quickly as you can, so that you can do whatever you WANT to do, for as long as you can.”

You see, Leaders with matching checks are movers and shakers. They take initiative. They take action. They are always striving to be better. No matter what level of success they achieve, they may get temporarily content, but they are never satisfied. There is always someone out there looking for some assistance. There is always someone out there searching for you, as much as you are searching for them. There is always someone looking for a better life, a better lifestyle, more income, more peace of mind. Yes, there is always someone looking, for a leader. And by you being that leader that others are looking for, you are always going to be in high demand. Remember, there is a HUGE market in this World for people with belief and confidence. Get out there and demonstrate how its done. Lead from the front, from the top and ’til the end. Because that’s just what Leaders do.   P.S. Thanks for stopping by today to read my blog. I value you and your commitment to success.
