I go to grappling lessons a few times every week. I like it because it keeps me fit and is also a challenge.
Not my point at all but I wanted to put this into context.
I was training with my instructor and was lucky enough to have two other instructors in with us who had double booked the room. During the conversation my instructor was talking about enjoying what you are doing and diving in so you can learn from your mistakes.
Many people grapple but don’t want to get caught so nothing much happens during the spar. He then said something which applies to life “If you want to be a success you need to take a few risks.”
We have been brainwashed from the moment we could walk to not take risks, play it safe and keep your head down. But I’m afraid that won’t get us far. As Robert Kiyosaki says – we get punished for making mistakes as employees but we get rewarded for making them as entrepreneurs.
