Its always important to try even if it means failing

Everyone is scared of failure. I’ll be the first to admit it that it scares me too at times but you have to get over it. That’s the important thing in accomplishing your goals. Getting over that fear of failure. Easier said then done I know.

I have failed quite a few times. My first Muay Thai fight at 16 I got TKOed…complete failure right there right. Yes and no. You learn alot from failure. It also says a ton about your character when you can get up, dust yourself off and go back to trying. Because if you don’t try then you never know if you will ever succeed. If you don’t try, you will just stay stagnant with absolutely 0 progress. Fast forward to know I became a professional MMA fighter and am loving my career choice. This is because I didn’t choose to stay down and defeated. Get out of your comfort zone. If you don’t get out of that cushy nice comfort zone you will stay stagnant. No progress. Stay where you are.

The timing will never be just right. Trust me on this. If you want something go and get it. Want to start a business? I think that is the best idea you have ever had. Don’t be scared. Just trust me on this. Nobody knows everything in life when starting something. Key word there is STARTING. Be smart, take calculate risks, be persistent and believe in yourself.

YOU WILL SUCCEED

Positive Self Talk

In any type of undertaking you need positive self talk at all times. Job interview, competition, exam etc you always need to tell yourself that you are going to do great and that you feel great.

From a fighters perspective, a few days prior to a fight all fighters go through weight cuts. Now this involves very little fat in your diet…actually nevermind it is the skinny anorexic models diet! haha but ok all jokes aside its a pretty shitty time. Especially because you cant eat what you want to eat and whatever you are eating you cannot have too much of it. Anyways its a ton of pressure on your mind and your mood will take a killing in the process. A simple fix. Positive Self Talk! A very simple exercise of just saying positive sentences to yourself. These sentences could be as simple as “I am feeling great today!” Thats it!

This has had profound effects on me the past few days. It may seem alittle odd at first but believe me it will change your whole day.

One positive thought in the beginning of your day will determine how the rest of your day goes.
