Publisher's Summary

This is a collection of intimate and sometimes shocking conversations about motivation with 12 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts.
The end result is 12 fascinating and unexpected stories about overcoming adversity and achieving success in life and Jiu-Jitsu.
Jiu-Jitsu has often been used as a metaphor of life, but you can replace Jiu-Jitsu with any sport, business or ambitious pursuit - the lessons are universal.
What drives ambitious people is often shaped by our subconscious mind. We are not always aware of the influences driving our behavior, but you will discover underlying themes which reveal answers to the following questions:


What drives highly successful people?
Are they born ambitious or is it learned?
What is common among extremely motivated people?
What lessons have they learned during their journey?
Were the sacrifices worth the rewards?

Hespectfully

The narrator was good, but those Portuguese mispronunciations and name butcherings were a detractor for me.

Sorry, but no

I wanted to support this book on principle, but it just doesn't gel. The narrator sounds absurd affecting some of the casual language of the featured interviewees. Worse really the content is a drab list-like bio of no doubt extraordinary bjj practitioners, shame it doesn't reach the heights of its potential. Check out Sam Sheridan's excellent books or Joe Rogan's (podcast) for an insightful view of modern martial arts and motivation.
