Another clip from Revolution a month or so ago. Finished the half cross collar choke for the win. What I love about competition is that not only is it a physical game, but a mental game as well. There are so many variables in a match and so many unknowns. My opponent could be short and stocky, tall and lanky, he could have a wrestling background or a judo backrgound, you just never know. All you can do is train and not get stuck on one set of moves or one end all be all game plan. You have to have a flexible mindset and be ready to adapt at any moment. In this match I was planning on shooting a takedown but when I got grips I could tell my opponent was a better wrestler than me. So switched up my strategy and it worked out this time. #bjj#jiujitsu#bjjlifestyle#choke#caioterrabjj#persist#dontstop#trainmore#martialarts#compete

Life is so hard to cope with. There are literally no rules on how shitty it can get. Then at the same time it can the biggest struggle to reach happiness even momentarily. Maybe there is no limit on happiness, but regardless, it is much less accessible than the bad times. Personally, I dont think that's fair, but also life was never advertised as fair so 🤷🏿
So here I am, battling for great times, trying to fight through the awful, with no promise of anything working out, ever. Somehow I still have hope, and after all I've been through I think that's beautiful. Being alive is stressing me the fuck out but I'm still here for it. Those great moments I've had, they are coming around more and more lately, and they make this constant battle worth it.
Stay strong friends, you got this. 💞
"He will sit as refiner and purifier of silver: He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver. That they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness." The Tribe of Levi is the chosen tribe where priests had to come. In other words ministers of God on the alter was Levites. When Jesus Christ came He took back the priesthood and He is the High Priest of the whole church globally - Hebrews 3:11 and 9:1.
Now today ministers of God comes from any people, race, nation because salvation was given to all nations.
Today we look at everyone as a minister for the calling to love is for all who believe. So God want to purify us that we may be the standard of offering Him a service.
You are today's Levite. You are today's God service provider. You are the future's people servant.
My point today is that endure for the work of the furnace/situation you are going through is to enpure you to become worth of what God want you to be. You are gold standard. The process of enpuring gold is through furnace. I wanna encourage you that God want you to be pure gold not like gold but gold itself. Furnace gives value to gold.
Through it He is with you. He is for you and watching over you. You will not die nor fail neither get destroyed.
Stained gold remains gold. Accept the process and make it to the standard God want you. Our God is the God of excellence. He want you to excel. He want you to be great and the best. Champions are not born but are made in rings. It's called victory when there has been battle that the victor has taken it. You will not be consumed. You are unlimited edition. You are a child of destiny. This is training ground.
There is a voice that's speaks. Listening to that voice. You are not alone. You will make it. God want you to serve Him at the best of you.
Today the Lord our God says to you
"When you pass through the waters I will be with you. And through the rivers they shall not overflow you. When you walk through fire you shall not be burnt nor the flame scorch you." - Isaiah 43:2.
You are gold standard.
…again and again, otherwise we may not know you are there. Don’t hope we will find you but do your best to ensure that we see you in more places than normal, and with better impressions every day.
Interrupt us, but don’t shout at us. Make sure that you are always generous with your value offerings.
Do all you can to earn the right to be listened to and the right to be given attention. Cut through the clutter of our lives. Stay in our face enough such that anytime we encounter a particular challenge (or hear of someone who does) or we have a kind of need that you have a solution to, only you will come to our minds.
If I had the chance to share a secret with any fledgling entrepreneur (of whatever genre) on how to succeed in their gig, this is what I will tell them: the world is too busy and no one owes you their time or attention; just keep showing up!
A letter from former Admiral William H. McRaven —
Dear Mr. President:
Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.
Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.
Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.
A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow.
A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.
Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.
If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be. .

#raiseyourhorns in efforts to raise awareness in Mental Health. Most unfortunately we lost a true warrior in Rock N Roll yesterday with @jjhuntress passing away. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her. But none the less it never lessens the blow when you hear of someone taking their own life. From what I've heard she was a kind caring soul. 5 octave range was killer to listen to her sing.
@officiallzzyhale has started this trend and she's wonderful for doing so.
I personally have had my struggles over the years in feeling alone and worthless. I encourage you to speak up and share your story as well. The truth will certainly set you free.
Meet Lynda! She is a longtime patient of Scott Sabolich. She was here today for a follow up appointment for the most recent prosthesis we built for her. Lynda is 80 years old and just celebrated 62 years of marriage, but she’s not slowing down anytime soon. She is consistently taking 10,000 steps a day! Way to go, Lynda! You’re a true inspiration! #sabolichstrong 💪🏼👏🏻
Despite being crazy busy with house calls and clinic work, I still persist with the current hiit and lift program and commit to make my health a priority in the big picture. Some days can be really hard when fatigue kicks in… But keeping up with the exercise program and the daily superfood and essential amino acids really picks up my energy and… Like a motor… Keeps me revving hi! 😁😁 Are you finding that your energy cannot keep up what you want to accomplish? Seriously consider transforming your health and energy with the program I’m doing… The bonus is you lose weight and look younger in the process!😁
I love the momentum it gives me every day!
Hooray! I've started my own individual and group training sessions with Body Science Training Center in Chesapeake. Will be hosting boot camps, strength and conditioning classes, HIIT/Circuit Training AAAAAAND (what I'm pumped about) Build a Booty, Long and Lean Body and Flexibility Classes. Will be solidifying my schedule but have time available for class requests 😘😘😘
To my mom—today she celebrates her 82nd birthday. Never the less she persisted...that she did. @anitarhoyt — you were dealt a full hand and never let it stop you, it only made you stronger. I can only hope to be a fraction of the mother you have been. I love you more every day and am eternally grateful for your fight, determination, grit and unconditional love. You inspire me and I love you! Happiest of birthdays mom! 🎂🎉🎂 #momslove#82ndbirthday#familytime#celebratingincomo#columbia#mizzou#rbg#persist#grit#willpower#fighton
