What’s the secret ingredient to success? Well, there isn’t just one, but there are two ingredients: passion and hard work. In other words, you’ve got to be passionate about whatever it is that you’re doing and you’ve got to be willing to work hard towards the peak of your mountain.
Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida understands this well. He’s had to put in extraordinary amounts of effort, in order to become the name he is today. In his own words, he is a simple guy who worked hard – and “got there”.
Take it from him:
My whole life I’ve been passionate about Jiu-Jitsu and I worked hard. So, when you mix those two together, I think that’s the perfect combination. And when you put your hard work in, when you’re 100% into that, there’s no way it’ll go wrong.
It doesn’t matter if it’s in your sport, in your personal life… If you put your 100% into working hard in something and you’re passionate about it – that’s the secret. Work hard, and you’re going to get there.
I’m just a simple guy who came out of nowhere. My family had no history in martial arts, and yet I made it. I’m just a simple guy who worked hard… Who rode his bike sometimes for 40km a day.
If it was possible for me, I believe it’s possible for anyone. But of course, it’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be hard. But I promise you, it’s going to be worth it. If I did it, you can do it too – just believe in yourself.
