Think you don’t deserve your belt promotion? The one thing to tell yourself

Your name is called. You walk up to your JiuJitsu instructor. Your belt is untied and a new one is tied on for you while your old one hangs behind your neck. You can’t believe it. You’ve worked so hard and so long for this. You don’t think you deserve this belt promotion.

Well, you’re wrong.

​Sometimes as a society we believe that if we think we do not deserve anything good, then it is a sign of us being humble. While it is very important to not flaunt, that doesn’t mean you never deserve anything good in your life. After getting a belt promotion, some students have a tendency to say that they didn’t think it was going to happen that day or that they feel pressure because they don’t deserve it. If you ever think this, there is one thing you need to ask yourself.
