words to live by...

The biggest and most positive change I`ve made in my life (parenthood aside) has been taking up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I kick myself for not having done it sooner. What was I waiting for? I can`t really answer that because I`m not even sure I know the answer.

Today I heard something that made me think and I figured a facebook status update disappears about as quick as it goes up, so I figured I`d write it here.

"What would I do if I wasn`t scared?"

When you find yourself in a situation you`re prepared to back away from out of fear of failure, rejection...whatever. Ask yourself; "what would I do if I wasn`t scared?" Then just do that. (or at least be open to trying it)

What`s my point? Don`t hold`s too short. Go after what you want.

Me...I want to earn my blue belt in bjj.

  1. Very nicely said Yves. I made a promose to myself years ago to never make any decision based on fear. That decision has opened up so many opportunities in my life, I can't even begin to tell you.
