I learned a lesson while rolling the other day that I wanted to share with you, and it relates very much to life.
(There are a ton of insights to be learned from Jiu Jitsu, when looked at with a bigger picture view...)
So I was rolling with my professor and I got caught in a DEEP Guillotine Choke.
Anyone who has been there knows, that’s not a good situation to be in,
But I remembered this specific strategy to defend against it:
Stick your chin out & up (all the way to the mat if you’re in their guard) until you can start the escape.
So I did, I stuck my chin out, kept my chin up, and I just remained calm and continued to breathe until I could fight the hands and escape.
And after I was thinking about how relatable that is to life.
So many people reach out to me and tell me how they just feel stuck,
And they just don’t know how to get out from where they are.
So here’s your answer from this lesson learned:
When you feel like life has you in a deep "Guillotine Choke"…
Just keep your chin up and breathe, until you can take the next steps to escape.
If you don’t know what the next steps are, reach out and let’s talk to see if we can work it out.
Contact me, reach out, let me know what’s going on for you right now.
P.S. - If you’re wondering why you haven’t been seeing as many of these blog posts lately, I’ve been giving all my attention to my clients in the new online program, and seeing great results. I know some of you we’re interested but weren’t able to make it in the first round. That's because I like to keep the group small and focused, so if you’d like to be on the top of the list for the next round, be sure to apply here and get in early before all the spots are gone.
