Everyday in life your mind is trying to make you give up.. your mind is trying to make you do whatever is easier..it’s easier to sit on the couch and watch tv than it is to get your gi and go sweat in the mat..cuz the mind see you’re fighting, you’re in danger you can stop this now. Just stop. But the thing is you’re there because you want to. You want to challenge yourself. So you have to say "No I’m not giving up now I’m gonna go after this I’m gonna try harder I’m gonna go up to the last minute. I’m gonna resist a little bit more”“ - Felipe Costa
