Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
Most of us don’t naturally like to feel uncomfortable; we don’t like to look silly, make mistakes or mess up in front of others … but this is exactly how progress and learning is done. it is so easy, so tempting to remain in a ‘state of comfort’ - no risk, no pain, everything just stays the same. There is nothing wrong with that ‘state’ - it’s just that you cannot live there and expect anything amazing to happen. growth, progress and extra-ordinary success requires risk, pain, discomfort and a willingness to fail. Comfort seduces - but in the end, offers very little. JBW
