I wanted to write about it for a while now. But somehow, I couldn’t find the right words. I have just competed at my first ever World Championship as a Black Belt, and my mind won’t stop. So many things to share, so many ideas to turn into reality…
But that’s not what I wanted to write about today. Today I wanted to tell you that you need to be headstrong to be successful in Jiu Jitsu. I believe there are important for a BJJ competitor: strength, technique, self-belief.
By having only two of them you have a big chance of succeeding. Up until my move to USA, I was strong and I believed I am the best. Ask me if I was technical …
Then not so long ago, I lost my self-belief, I was strong, I was technical, but I didn’t believe. There was so many other things in my life going on, that I just didn’t believe that I am the best.
I was lucky enough to find out what was wrong with me, and now I believe again, and what is even better I am strong and technical, I am in my best shape ever and I am only getting better and I believe that I will be on the top of that podium very soon. I turn every lost into a victory. I am not looking at it like it is the end of the world, because it is not, it is a step forward. Maybe I am not running, but just walking slowly, but I ain’t giving up, I ain’t stopping, I am going and I will keep going strong.
Want to be World Champion? or maybe just the best you can be? Train, believe and keep going. All those other people, are same as you, just people, there is no super humans in the real world. Don’t forget about it. Don’t make yourself your own opponent. Fight others not yourself.
Ok, so now you read my post and you are like, but I don’t believe in myself, how can I change it. I tell my friends, to look in the mirror every day and tell yourself those stuff. Tell yourself that you are the best, tell yourself you can do it, you are strong and you are going to do your best, no one can stop you.
