This podcast episode transcends our usual discussion about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This is why I’m sharing it as a blog post here.
Has your confidence ever been destroyed? How did you recover? Have you been bullied as an adult and told you didn’t belong?
I’m sharing because I want you to know that you’re not alone. Have you hidden your accomplishments, your expertise, or your voice because you didn’t have the confidence?
I’m so grateful that my coach/co-host Aj Clingermandid did not quit the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu industry. This podcast wouldn’t exist if she wasn’t my coach. I never would have started training. I never would have known that even when it feels stupid awkward, my body and I are capable of things we never would have imagined trying. I never would have reconnected with my inner fighter.
Don’t quit. There is someone that needs to hear what you have to say. You won’t change lives when you don’t show up. We need you.
Who do you know that needs to hear this episode? Please share it with them.
