I really didn’t want to be here today. At work this AM I found myself coming up with a list of reasons to not go in and train jiu-jitsu. I was sore, tired from only 4 hrs of sleep, I didn’t eat enough the day before, I’ll just go tomorrow (which is a scheduled rest day), the list went on and on. Then I realized who was making these excuses, it was the part me I’ve tried to get rid of for the past couple of years. The lazy, “do it another day guy”. I’ve created a life of comfort around my craft and often times its held me back from goals, relationships, and achievements. A privilege and yet a curse tied up on one, when there is no discipline. While I have spent most of my adult life trying to make others better though health/wellness and mental toughness, although the ambition to do so myself has fallen short over and over again.
When I started @anchoragebjj it was a plot of revenge on the beta part of myself. A ploy to take back what I had taken from myself, and that being my character. It’s easy to trick the world into thinking you have it all under control and that you’re making the right moves. However, when no one is around (especially, when the head hits the pillow at night) the excuses made in the day will be there, and they will be heavy. So, I shut that part of me off. I went in a had a great training sessions. Maybe it was because I was more calm with technique since I was tired 🤷♂️or because I knew deep down that I had already won the battle by just showing up, like I said I would.
You see this is only week two of my commitment to train BJJ 4 sessions per week until I leave to study abroad in Aug and already I’m making excuses. Well, the hell with excuses and that beta bitch made man I can be. I’m done being mentally injured by my own doing.
That said, tomorrows rest day has been earned so revenge is mine. And the best revenge is to be unlike the one who caused the injury - Marcus Aurelius.
Keep it real my friends. Especially, to yourself. #itsthesimplethings#disciplineequalsfreedom#characteriskey#staythecourse#rant#bjj#slapbumproll#calmafterthestorm#gettingbetter#stayhumble
