If you don’t like pain, don’t fight….

Are you grateful for where you are at this moment in time?

Or are you still waiting on that one BIG thing to happen?

That one BIG thing is an accumulation of all the little things leading up to it.

Take the time to be grateful and appreciate the moments that seem insignificant.

Sometimes we pass through our accomplishments and setbacks too quickly.

Are you guilty of this?

During my “fighting years”, my goal was to leave a mark in the growth of Muay Thai in NYC. I wanted to make sure that after I am dead and buried that people can look back and say that I made a difference in the sport.

This was the BIG vision for me…and still is.

But I am super grateful for all the small things that have lead to, and are leading to the ultimate dream.

The times that I smashed my shins and couldn’t kick for months, only to find out from a legendary “golden era” fighter that, “if you don’t like pain, don’t fight.”...

Being KNOCKED OUT, unconscious, early in my pro career, leaving me on the sidelines for 13 months with a major knee injury…

LOSING the last and final fight of my career, but still being able to squash the “East coast vs West Coast” beef that was going on at the time….

I, myself, passed through all these moments quickly to get back on my path towards my true purpose in life.

But as I look back and reflect, I feel gratitude as all these events have played a MAJOR part in helping me become the person that I am today.

Appreciation and gratitude are already within YOU!

It’s NOT something you can buy.

It’s NOT something you can borrow.

It’s NOT something you can steal.

It IS something that YOU CAN use to find, or put you on a path for your own



and GOALS!

I challenge you to let APPRECIATION and GRATITUDE into your life today to help you realize that the little things matter.

Disappointments and triumphs are one in the same.

There are NO wins without losses.

There are NO peaks without valleys.

There is NO good without the bad.
