What I’m Grateful For

It is tax day which means that my head hurts, my back is tense and my wallet is mad at me. But it also means that “Gratitude” month is half over at Zandri’s Martial Arts. So on tax day I ask you this, what are YOU grateful for?

I try to think about this question every day when I wake up and every night before I go to bed. This was one of the best pieces of advice I ever received. If you do that exercise every single day, suddenly all those little problems in your life tend to just melt away.

Well, since I asked all our students to share their Gratitude stories with us this month, I thought it only fair to share one of my own.

Zandri’s Martial Arts are members of a group called MAIA, the Martial Arts Industry Association. Through them, we receive professional help in training our instructors and making sure that what we provide for our students is the best of the best.

Our school has been doing so well it has recently caught the eye of MAIA. They asked me (Mike Brooks) to be a speaker at their annual industry event they call the Martial Arts Supershow held in Orlando Florida.

I will have the honor of speaking to hundreds of martial arts instructors and school owners from all over the world who are looking to provide the best for their students. I am overwhelmed, to say the least, that they have picked me to help share with others in our industry.

But the truth of it is that I would not be in this position today without you. Our students and families at Zandri’s have helped me to learn and grow to where I have become an expert within my industry. Without our the trust and loyalty of our students over the years, this would not be possible for me.

So half way through gratitude month, after possibly the worst tax day I have ever had, I have to say I am so grateful to our students, families and friends for helping me learn and grow.

Remember to have an attitude of gratitude. It really will make you feel great. And please share your gratitude story with us.
