I Got a Promotion

Two weeks ago, Professor presented me with my blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

It was quite an honor and yes, I was proud of that accomplishment.

But, it did not magically make me better.

I have continued to follow the plan laid out for me, week after week, session after session and I knew that I was further along my path than when I began four years ago.

The belt is one of those things we call a lag indicator, the work goes before the promotion.

Too many in society want a promotion before putting in the work.

When you focus on the process in life, you know what you are capable of, you are much more self aware.

I competed in bodybuilding for a number of years. Someone asked me about being a bodybuilder recently. I told them, ‘I was never a bodybuilder. Bodybuilding was just something I did’.

Point being, externals don’t define you.

You know who you are and if not, maybe you are focusing too much on the externals.

As within, so without.
