This is a collection of intimate and sometimes shocking conversations about motivation with 12 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts. The end result is 12 fascinating and unexpected stories about overcoming adversity and achieving success in life and Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu has often been used as a metaphor of life, but you can replace Jiu-Jitsu with any sport, business or ambitious pursuit - the lessons are universal. What drives ambitious people is often shaped by our subconscious mind. We are not always aware of the influences driving our behavior, but you will discover underlying themes.
