Nicholas Meregali is, arguably, the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi competitor today. He’s been beating everyone, left and right, for some time now…
But it appears that Meregali is questioning the “sense” behind it all. Namely, he’s been pondering whether he should focus on something else, rather than on competition.
He shared why in a recent social media post:
Sometimes I catch myself thinking about where I want to go as a Jiu-Jitsu fighter.
I can’t lie that I often question whether the way I’m living my life is the right way of living.
I am in a position where no man in the entire world can beat me in a GI fight and there is also no current fighter who is even close to my technical level in the GI, although I am still working as I did when I was 19. years old.
Meregali has been thinking about taking an another path, but…
Life could be easier for me, I could open a school, I could win a few more world titles without much effort, I could retire soon and live my life telling people what I did in the past, but when I sit down and meditate on my life decisions, what I truly want is a legacy so big and so powerful that words wouldn’t be enough to describe what I’ve done in life.
The price of greatness is not normal, it is not covered by the media, it is not achieved with average effort, and it is not given by friends, greatness is something difficult to explain but smooth to feel.
