There are no shortcuts in life. You have to get to the nitty gritty and do your best to succeed if you truly have a goal in mind. The significance of dedication should be displayed, and I was able to show that myself.
I take Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and every week I practice as often as I can. I have always loved the art of defense. I have also incorporated some techniques to help me get fit and stay focused. I go to free yoga classes and I have a weight training routine. Along the way, I have learned the importance of dedication and how I am able to achieve my goals.
First, I decided for myself that I needed to plan long term. The larger the goal, the longer it will take to set and complete. I took the first step when I researched and signed up for classes. I needed to purchase a new, perfect gi. I did not know where I could find the right one, but because of my dedication, I was able to find few specialised websites. I was able to look through the different types of gis as well as compare prices with online and brick and mortar businesses. Luckily, I was able to find the perfect white gi that I needed in order to perform on the mat. I was surely not going to use a dirty, dingy uniform.
The second thing I did to preserve my dedication was to remind myself that despite the fact I did not see any immediate results, that doesn’t mean I give up. I keep trying and trying until I get a response from all the hard work. I have put a lot of thought during the many hours of training to improve my overall physical conditioning. You have to constantly train your mind and body to quickly react in order to keep a dominating position. Just because you don’t get results quickly does not mean you won’t get any at all.
Another tip I would give to you about dedication is to not commit yourself to things that you don’t have your entire heart in. In other words, if you are not willing to dedicate yourself, to say, buy a new car, then you shouldn’t do it. It is easier to set a goal than it is to finish it. Make sure the goal is reachable.
Build a habit in order to get to your goal. Without habits, you will have difficulty to stick to your commitment. The importance of dedication shows when you get closer to what you want or need. Without dedication, how can you fulfill your dreams? I can proudly say that I went slowly and cautiously in order to build up to several hours of training per week. I also had to work a lot to save up for the perfect gi. Write down your short-term and long-term goals, figure out what you need to do in order to meet said goals, and find some inspiration to build positive habits.
