If you're aware already, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the hardest martial arts to receive the rank of Black Belt, this is highly due to the fact that BJJ has a large focus on performance of the practitioner. It is very rare that you come across a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that can't handle themselves on the mat well.
It takes most people 9 to 15 years to reach the level of Black Belt in BJJ. Most people can't even stick to something for 12 to 15 days haha, so imagine how hard it could be to stick with something for 12 to 15 years! Add the fact that you're not just sticking with any ordinary thing. You are choosing to stick with something that is:
- Physically Challenging
- Mentally Challenging
- Emotionally Challenging
Those things I listed above scare most people.
In this video I share just some of the simple things that I did to help keep me focused, motivated, and driven to reach the goal of Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Without doing these little things, I honestly don't think I would have been as focused as I was. I always need constant reminders to stick with my journey and my goals and these things have really helped me along the way.
The great thing is that I don't just use these methods for BJJ, I use them in every day life as well.
