Jiu Jitsu Can Help Make You a Mentally Strong Person

I don’t know if anyone else has seen this list floating around, but on the site Lifehack there is a list of “13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do”. Naturally, being curious I looked through the list and realized a lot of the positive habits and behaviors listed are encouraged in jiu jitsu for the most part. Some examples:

“They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry For Themselves”

“They Don’t Give Up After the First Failure”

“They Don’t Expect Immediate Results”

We all have our weak moments, particularly early on in our jiu jitsu journey, but I really think as time goes on another benefit from training in jiu jitsu is the development of that mental strength, in addition to all the other physical and psychological benefits.

Check out the list and let me know what you think.
