People tend to overrate the impact talent has on a person's success. I'm not here to argue whether it exist or not, or to which degree, because it truly doesn't matter. What matters is how we choose to look at it. By not buying into the idea that someone is natural gifted to be good at something, comes freedom - freedom from limitations we put on ourself. It will also be harder to find excuses for our lack of success. We should rather focus more on what we can control, which is the amount of work we put in.

Two tricky moves I did this year! It is always satisfying when your techniques works against tough competitors!

Today I recieved my BLACK BELT from my professor, @josecarloskobjj! Thank you for all your help and support throughout the years, I appreciate it a lot, sensei. Also big thanks to my first instructor @pepiharlem. He took me under his wings when I started my jitsu career in late 2010. I have learned a lot from him, both on the mats and outside. Congratulations with your black belt! It has been an amazing journey and I'm extremly happy for everything that I have experienced. I'm ready for a new chapter and I can't wait to compete at the highest level. Thank you to everyone that have supported me - I havn't arrived here alone. OSSS

Enjoying the view πŸ™β€

My parents reaction when I won Europeans.They have always supported me and believed in my abilities. I'm very lucky to have them. πŸ™

πŸ’₯ Some berimbolo action! πŸ’₯ Worlds didn't go as I had planned. I won three matches by submissions, but I ended up losing in the quaterfinal by points. No excuses. I'm just very excited for the upcoming challenges. My motivation is stronger then ever before and this experience will only benefit me in the long run. Thanks to everyone who supports me, thanks to my professor @josecarloskobjj and @jairlourencoknu. Also thanks to @rodrigo_cf_feijao for teaching a great camp at @gdjjacademy. A special thanks to Norwest AS for the support! πŸ™πŸ½

Competing is in my opinion, the ultimate form of personal development. You have to control your mind and stay cool under pressure. I am grateful for every tournament I have participated in because each and everyone of them has helped me grow as a person πŸ™

It is always cool when the former UFC champ, @renanbaraoufc, is around! He is a huge inspiration for everyone on the team.
