“Men are like steel. When they lose their temper, they lose their worth.”
I studied Jiu Jitsu for 10 years when I was young and one of the first things that our sensei taught us when we started sparring was that the “person who loses their temper loses the match. When you lose your temper you are surrendering control of the match to the other person.” This was a great lesson to learn at a young age and one that has stayed with me throughout my life.
I believe this is a lesson that truly applies to all areas of life. I can’t think of a single time when I have lost my temper where it created a positive outcome. Stay focused on what you can control and don’t let your temper be the reason you lose the match…
