Hey what’s up everyone!
I spent the day going over a few things, nothing too serious because I wanted to spend some time with my kids and just be dad and have fun. I learned why they like clowning around and are becoming excellent practical jokers…thanks dad!
The reason for my post this evening is to share a concept that many seem to have a little bit of a problem with. Whenever you decide to do something new, like learn jiu jitsu, it can be a very fun and exciting time. Anyone that has taken martial arts understands that as a beginner you are going to be handled. Blue belts can make a new and eager white belt feel like they should have left their Gi at the door when leaving. The thing to always keep you centered on your goal is to visualize what you wish to accomplish. In Jiu Jitsu, maybe you just learned a sweep from the guard and can’t wait to try it out. The more you visualize sweeping your partner or opponent, the easier it becomes when you are “in the battle.”
Life is the same way…always visualize whatever is in front of you. It’s like a form of mental practice. A calming mechanic to allow you to relax in sometimes stressful situations. Most would agree that your thinking is clear, clean and pure when totally relaxed so why wouldn’t you always want to be this way?
“Who put this thing together?….ME…Who do I trust…ME!” – Al Pacino Scarface
This should be your moment of clarity because the only person that can get you to commit mentally to something is you. Another form of visualization is meditation so if you are into that, by all means practice and believe in it.
I hope this little tidbit gives you another tool to place in your toolbox of mental fitness and toughness.
Have an Awesome Night!
Thanks For Reading.
