The first thing I notice about successful mixed martial arts athletes is that they have a sense of humor. They simply do not beat themselves up over there mistakes in the ring. They were able to laugh at circumstances, and they were able to laugh at themselves. Making it easier for themselves to learn from these mistakes.
The second thing I found out about this group of successful MMA athletes is that they did not achieve their success through pedigree, but through hard work. That's right, another example that if you put your mind to it, work hard and get in the right situation, you can achieve great things! They train long hours and are disciplined in there training.
The third thing I noticed is that they are learners. They were always engaged in the learning process. They remain teachable even after achieving success, ask questions and apple the material to their art. They want to improve in any way that they can and are not afraid to ask for help because there ego are in check. None of them was above learning from a peers.
The same things that can make you a success as you apply the principles to your own life: A sense of humor, hard work, and a desire to learn from your mistakes.
