Why People Do Not Progress

If you consider your training like a job (which a lot of MMA fighters even say), and just come in, clock in, do your time and get your hours in and leave and don't think about it again once you are gone, then that is the reason your progress has stalled. This doesn't mean you don't love martial arts, or that you even show up all the time. It's just that you think if you're there, automatically you are getting better or you will get better. Like if you show up for a job you will get paid regardless. It's not the same. I don't know how many people I see who say they love BJJ and want to get better, yet they just do the class, stay just long enough and once they are gone, they are gone. They will only put their time in on the schedule they have created or when its convenient. To be a good martial artist, you have to be a martial artist 24/7 in all the things you do.

Martial arts without dedication just becomes like a boot camp or a good work out.
