#212 Showing up is easy

To reach such a peak, there is no particular set of skills required (a guide may be advised lol) but rather that you bring yourself and your best, be present and put one foot in front of the other. While that seems easy enough, too many are unfamiliar with this idea. You will see this in Jiu Jitsu, in people’s lives and New Years resolution and só on.

We all know that life is hard and filled with struggle as is the journey. To reach the peak of the Matterhorn is no easy feat, but the views are astounding to say the least. All that work however, to watch a sun rise or set behind those mountains may seem like an unreasonable thing to many. Yet those who have made the trek understand fully and would do it again and again.

As an instructor, before encouraging a student to push themselves harder I look to help them understand the value of showing up daily (relative to their schedule and goals) whether or not they even work hard during that time. You may be surprised by what I am about to tell you but %99 of people, even some of the most gifted athletes do not demonstrate the ability to execute this single and simple task. So do yourself a favor, in order to reap the rewards, don’t stop midway. Show up and watch your efforts be compounded into something magical in a few years’ time. You along with many of the great achievers will be glad you did!
