Finally got to meet one of my longtime bjj idols Kristina Barlaan!!!!!! *_* I’ve been following her since she was a blue belt and she’s been my biggest inspiration in my bjj training. Also she’s such a wonderfully nice and positive person irl! #latergram (at Walter Pyramid LBSU)
Finally! I’m able to log into my Instagram/Tumblr account. Was having trouble coz I was logging from the US so both accounts were flagged for suspicious activity. Manage to solve it via customer support today. Anyway a lot of you have been curious how I did at #mundials2014. I lost in the Quarters after winning my first two matches. I’m disappointed of course. Getting on the podium would have been great but #noexcuses just got to train harder. As for my bf n team-mate they lost in the first round but I’m still proud of them. It was a mega tough bracket.
Just a little something I put together to remind myself to live with the decisions I’ve made.
I haven’t really told a lot of people this but I’ve resigned from my company of 6 years and I’m currently serving my notice period. After that it’s off to the US for the Mundials and a short sabbatical. During my sabbatical I hope to write a book of sorts. After that’s done, it’s time to focus back on the career.
" Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth. This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean." Our Prime Minister’s latest PC.statement. RIP #MH370
It’s exactly 8 week to the Mundials. To say that I’m nervous is an understatement. I train twice a day, 6X a week, 6 hours a days, BJJ, strength and conditioning. Despite everything that I’m doing I always feel that I can do more. It’s never enough.
Mentally I’m always thinking:
That I’m not technical enough
That I’m not well conditioned enough
That I’m not strong enough
That I’m not training enough because I work fulltime vs those who train jiu jitsu fulltime
That I’m not good enough to hang it at the World stage
But this video just helped put some perspective for me about facing fears. And the best line ever: ”Fear resolves into Focus”
It’s 8 weeks to the Mundials.
I’ve got to face my fears in the coming weeks and just shut the fuck up and train.
