We don’t often see the struggles of others. The self doubt. The decisions that don’t go the way we hoped. The outright fails.
What ever inspires you to move forward, use it.
I am no different than others. I struggle. I fail. On occasion I want to give up.
I go to bed.
Seriously...I go to bed. Sometimes at 6 pm. Because a fail exhausts me.
Then I get up the next day refreshed because I got needed rest.
Inspirational phrases help me too.
Some people think they are trite.
I think they help reframe the situation.
Found this little dirty backstage at a show. Author is unknown.
But I like it.
What’s the last message that inspired you to pick up after a fail?
I have been giving the guy I like advice on how to pursue the girl he likes. Should I tell him how I feel?
It depends, how will you feel once he knows you like him. Sometime it’s easier to put your feeling ahead of someone else, but remember things might not turn out the way you want it to. One of two things can happen: 1. He ends up liking you too or 2. He continues to pursue the other girl. Either way, it’s a risk you have to be willing to take.

As we get older, we generally try to simplify our lives. The amount of things I try to juggle has dramatically reduced in the last 5 to 8 years. Being overwhelmed with too many different things at once does not make me happy or feel productive. When I use to dump an excessive amount of things on my plate, it would just mean that I would be spread thin and not give the truly important things in my life the appropriate degree of attention.
Just like in jiujitsu we seek efficiency in movement, so too should we seek efficiency in life. Do not clutter yourself down with the inconsequential knick knacks of life. Prioritize the truly important and worthwhile people and things in life. You will find that your stress will massively plummet and your happiness and feeling of accomplishment will increase.
Don't clutter your life. Make your life efficient. #bjj#graciejiujitsu#graciemagazine#ufc#mma#life#advice#gotrain#jiujitsu#stress
