Taking your medicine

March 3, 2016

keep-calm-and-face-your-fears-1I have always referred to training with higher belts, people better than me, or just tough hard session as taking my medicine. It is something I do not look forward to. Often the thought of rolling with some people brings out emotions and thoughts of fear, discomfort, hard work (I’m lazy) . I wonder why at times I feel this way even when I have been able to dominate a person in training before? Well, just like medicine you got to suck it up buttercup and get your daily dose of humble pie. For the most part after most sessions I feel better about it, it makes me a bit tougher, a bit more comfortable at being uncomfortable. But I cannot lie sometimes I’m just inside my own head. ¬†Any of you ever feel this way training? If so, what do you do to battle this mentality? Any tips/ tricks would be gladly appreciated.
