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