2 stripes

Last night, I got my first two stripes on my Brazilian jiu jitsu belt.

This is my first ever milestone in the sport. It tells others, “I’m still a newbie, but it’s not my first day.”

I remember in the first three months of starting, I literally thought to myself, I’ll never get better at this.

It’ll be so fun to think back to that thought when I earn my blue belt, purple belt, and so on…

The lesson:

If you feel like you can’t get better at something, practice it every single week for a year and see what happens.
