In between travelling around the world speaking at different events, I was honoured to attend The Muay Thai Grand Prix 6 ISKA K-1 Kickboxing championships at The O2 in London a few weeks ago. One of the fighters, undefeated Kelly Haynes, is a former Wealth Dragons employee, family friend, mum and committed athlete. Wealth Dragons is also one of Kelly’s official sponsors.
On the night, Kelly made history by being crowned British Muay Thai Grand Prix 6 ISKA K-1 Kickboxing champion. Kelly is a black belt martial arts instructor who has never been defeated in a title to date. She started kickboxing when she was 10 years old and had her first win in the nationals in 1996. Having stopped training straight afterwards, she resumed her commitment to the sport some years later, in 2013, when she was 29 years old and a very proud mum to her little boy Archie, who is now nine years old.
What Kelly has achieved is really quite amazing – she embodies the fact that we can all change our life, if we want to, regardless of where we start. To become successful in any walk of life requires commitment, dedication, sacrifice, working with a team and learning from experts. Regardless of whether you are a Muy Thai champion, property investor or aspirational entrepreneur. As Wealth Dragons, we teach the power of shifting your mindset towards success, as Kelly will have done throughout her journey. Kelly embodies the power and strength of a Wealth Dragon and I am so proud of her.
The other important part of success is life balance and achieving ‘healthy wealth’ as well as ‘wealthy health’. Kelly is our designated Health Dragon Ambassador. I have recently committed myself back to health and fitness and know only too well the mental and physical commitment that is required to perform at optimum levels. In order for me to be at the top of my business and teaching game, I also need to be at the top of my physical game – as an ongoing commitment and investment in myself.
For any of you who are keen to embark upon a journey towards financial freedom and success, it is paramount that you take care of your health and fitness, as well as your bank balance. Health always come first. Without our health, none of us are able to reach the heights we may seek in life. And, more importantly, part of the very reason to become a Wealth Dragon is so that you have more free time and choice in life – to spend time doing what you love outside of the office.
On behalf of everyone at Wealth Dragons, I would like to take this opportunity to formally congratulate Kelly on her recent title and look forward to being part of the next part of her Champion’s Story.
