Welcome to my new site. So glad you stopped by.
Check out my “About” page for more info on what this blog is all about.
This is my first post, and I’m going to keep it short. As a fighter, I tend to stay pretty busy, so I don’t have time to write a whole lot. But when I do, I promise to make it count.
If you’re a fighter like me, then it’s likely you found my site by searching for MMA training. Well, sorry to disappoint you, but I’m no longer an MMA fighter. I am, however, still a fighter (as I mention on my About page … if you haven’t gone there yet, be sure to check it out after reading this post.)
So this – my first post – is dedicated to all the fighters out there. I just want to encourage you to keep fighting. For whatever it is you’re fighting for.
Most of us MMA fighters do it for the thrill. But whether you’re into mixed martial arts or not, if you’re living life the way you should be living it, then you’re fighting for something meaningful.
Something. If you’re not fighting for something, then you’re not living.
Choose, this day, to believe in something and fight for it. Stop daydreaming, and take action. In all my years as an MMA fighter, that’s the number one lesson I took away from every session in the ring – take action.
Sure, you can stand there, and wait for your opponent to make the first move. But if he has the same mindset as you, you’ll both be waiting for a long time. And where’s the thrill in that?
The thrill comes when you take action. When you make the first move. So, go for it. Stop waiting. Stop dreaming. Do something for God’s sake.
That’s all I have to say for now. Come back later for more inspiration.
