So I have recently started practicing Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
I want to be able to protect the people that I love, and I feel as a man I should just know how to fight so that I can protect myself, and most importantly my woman.
And in a weird way, I felt as though my taking on of MMA is connected to the idea of just trying something new. Even something as simple as joining a gym, learning a martial art, I feel that people even have difficulty with things like that.
We are too limited by our fears. We bar ourselves from trying the things that would liberate us. Things that we might even love. I love Muay Thai. I love Bjj. And I would have never known, if I had never given the two a chance.
And I would have never even thought about practicing either of the two if it weren’t for the fact that I listen to great men like Jocko Willink or Joe Rogan, and even Tim Ferriss.
You have to expose yourself to great people and great ideas. There is a whole world out there that you know nothing about, and the people that surround you, that have experienced the unknowns, they can be your guide.
They can distill the decades of hard work and learning, and help you save time and effort.
Learn from your superiors, so you can become superior.
Get after it.
