Just the other day, I was reading this blog post by Chris Matakas, The Problem Jiu Jitsu Solves. It resonated with me, and it might resonate with you, too. It’s a great reminder that our best selves are only discovered through hard work. As Chris says in the article, “This highest self can only be found by pushing through repeated resistance. When our environment does not provide such an opportunity, we are tasked to either change that environment or find a new one.”
Anytime I thought I was the best at something, my father would tell me, “When you find yourself the biggest fish in the pond, change ponds.”
Try jiu jitsu today, not only will it challenge you, but it will change the way you view and live your life for the better.
