This is what it takes to be the best

Commitment, consistency, focus, discipline, mental toughness, diligent work ethic, constant and never ending improvement. These are some of the key factors that make you “the best“.

George St-Pierre is the UFC‘s welterweight world champion, and he is considered by many as the best Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter in the world, and in these videos we get the opportunity to follow his preparation for the toughest fight of his career, when he faced another remarkable fighter named Jake Shields.

Now, you may be wondering: “how does this relate to me?” … “I am not a fighter?” … well, I don’t care what is it that you do, weather you are an entrepreneur, a banker, a nurse or a taxi driver; if you want to succeed, if you want to be the best … you need to embrace all the elements I have just mentioned at the beginning of this post.

I am sure that you do not need to be a fan of MMA or other martial arts to enjoy and get value from these videos.

Note: You can just watch one of the episodes to see what I am talking about. However I have included all three videos in case you really enjoyed them and end up wanting to watch the whole program (that was what actually happened to me. I watch the first-one and I simply could not stop. Now, I am definitely a big fan of George St-Pierre!)

How high are your standards?

This video is not about running (well, actually it is, but that is not my point). This is a great video about setting high standards for yourself. It is about knowing what you are really made of. It is about stepping out of your comfort zone and pushing your limits.

So no, you don’t have to become an ultramarathon runner like David Goggins, but if you want to succeed (in anything) … you need to set high standards for yourself, and then go for it … everyday.


By the way, if you want to know more about this remarkable person, I highly recommend you to read the following article: David Goggins: The Toughest Athlete On The Planet?

Quote of the week

“There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
Ken Blanchard


Commitment is the key difference between success and failure

Commitment is the key difference between success and failure. In order to really accomplish anything, you need to commit 100% to make it happen, so before you start anything, you have to be sure that whatever you are starting, you will finish.
