Today’s question from Selena is about self confidence. It pertains to her training BJJ for the 1st time. But she lacks confidence overall and would like to change that.
In this video I come from the perspective of someone who had no confidence when they were younger.
If you’ve watched my videos then you know that in high school I lacked confidence and it wasn’t until I continually trained in Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu that I pulled myself out of it.
And I talk about the process and how you’re not necessarily born with self confidence. But instead you build it up like a muscle.
I talk about going from an overweight high schooler who couldn’t even talk to people to becoming a professional MMA fighter who talks to thousands of people through a camera.
The biggest idea I try to share in this video is that self confidence doesn’t mean you aren’t nervous or that you don’t have fears.
Confidence in yourself, whether BJJ or otherwise, is having those anxieties and fears but knowing that you can take care of it, that you can deal with it and overcome it.
So if you someone struggling with confidence in yourself. Whether to start your 1st BJJ class or something else. I hope the video is helpful!
