Brad Anastasia: Balancing Gratitude with Aspiration

Brad are I are both coming to a close with our competitive jiujitsu careers, and one of my biggest questions is what NEW pursuit is going to fill that void. I am also moving the family to Indiana and rehabbing a house on 8 acres so it will be a massive change of lifestyle.

We are both curious if we will be able to be happy with no athletic goals to chase.  It’s been such a big part of both of our lives for decades. And the fascinating balance between gratitude (which means you are happy and content) with Aspiration (which keeps you striving to achieve more).

“Time is both long and short. On balance you’ll probably live about 90 years (4,700 weeks, 33,000 days) You can do anything just not everything. Make every day count.”
