“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Here’s the thing about habits: they’re really hard to break. That’s why, in life, it’s really important to build good habits. What is the goal that you have in your life? Do you want to go to the gym more? Do you want to eat healthier? Train more in the Gi? Just train more Jiu-Jitsu overall? It is very easy to say, “Oh, I should really start lifting regularly”, but it is also very easy to then not do it. In this way Jiu-Jitsu is similar to life, it is very important to develop good habits and practice these habits every time we step on the mats.
