I'm going to tell you a story about what went through my mind during the finals of a Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament, but frankly, it's what goes through my mind during any intense situation. To boil it all down into one word, it would be "mindset."
Mindset meaning: the established set of attitudes.
The attitudes I hold are far from perfect, or even normal, but sometimes abnormal works...
- Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ)
- Mindset & growth mindset
- Stoicism & negative visualization
- Fight Club
- Deliberate practice
Books I Recommend:
- Fight Club: A Novel - Chuck Palahniuk
- David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants - Malcolm Gladwell
