Learning how to lose

I lost my two Jiu Jitsu fights today. 

The first one on points, the next one by arm bar submission.

Martial arts is great for the body, great for the mind and great for the ego. 

It teaches you how to lose. When you go up against someone, there’s a winner and a loser.

Learning how to lose is a skill. In the beginning, losing leaves a dent in the ego. The dent never goes away either. Every lose is still a lose. Except now you realise the value in losing. Because losing means learning something.
