Complacency is an easy trap to fall into and really doesn’t require much effort.  It’s a subtle condition that steals our motivation one decision at a time.  Here of late I allowed myself to be robbed. Robbed of overall health and more importantly my Jiu Jitsu journey.

Complacency starts with one poor decision.  You know the kind.  A cookie isn’t going to amount to anything or I don’t feel like training tonight.  And I’m guilty as charged.   However, it’s worse when it becomes habit forming.  And I admit it.  The muscle memory for complacency has reached new heights for me.

Now here is the excuse, right or wrong, it is the reality.  Here of late, my personal life has been in a turmoil.  Not a turmoil in a bad way, just more about shifting priorities.  Priorities such as sick kids, late days at the office or other event’s which have distracted me from what is important.  The distractions, while legitimate should not excuse eating poorly or training less.  I’ve allowed the distractions to increase my waist line, reduce my interest in training and in some cases just get me in a foul mood.

Allowing complacency now requires me to fight harder in getting back to where I was before my slide. Getting back the reward of my previous efforts.  Taking back that which I allowed to be stolen from me.  Taking back that which I so easily gave up.

What is my plan for starting all over again? All I know is I must kick the tires and light the fires again.  I need to execute on the ideas that have been spinning in my head for months.  Ideas that can have tremendous payout for me, if I put forth my best.  Ideas that hopefully improve not only my personal habits but more importantly my Jiu Jitsu journey as well. 

Only time will tell…stay tuned.

Peace, Love & Chokes.
