Earlier this week I attended a conference and had the benefit of listening to motivational speaker and Wall Street vet, Carla Harris . She shared a few of "Carla's Pearls" with us, her personal and simple strategies for success. The pearls included a reminder that one of the biggest impediments to our success is our fear of failure. She also said that "failure always brings you a gift and that gift is called experience."
With success and inspirational words still fresh on my mind, it is time to start working on those fears. In BJJ the fears are nothing new - fear of passing guard, fear of not being able to escape from the bottom of half guard, fear of opening up my game and fear of fighting heavier in tournaments.
What about your fears? What is impeding your success?
"Fear has no place in your success equation." Carla Harris
