#3 - Comparing Ourselves to Other Martial Artists

The Karate Shrimp Podcast

Oct 8 2022 • 16 mins

Do you ever compare yourself to other martial artists and feel like you don’t measure up? In this episode we discuss the dangers of comparison. We explore the fallacy of well-meaning phrases such as “If I can do it, you can do it too,” and “If you want it badly enough, you can make it happen.” We look at the role of our environment in shaping our paths in martial arts. And finally, we explore the idea of “quitting” and “failing” in martial arts and other areas of our lives, and the reality that sometimes this is the best choice we can make.

Thank you for joining me on my martial arts journey, and in the exploration of all the ways we can perform better in life and martial arts.
