04 Aug Confidence is Silent. Insecurities are Loud.
JUAN SAYS: We are not fans of Ronda Rousy nor do we actually watch the fights, but as our facebook feeds start to get filled with Rousey’s 34 second fight and won over Bethe Correia, we couldn’t help but stare at this picture and click on the links that led to this story. Bethe is perceived as the loud mouthed-trash talking bitch who supposedly made fun of Ronda’s father’s suicide. And to add insult to injury, her words implied that even Ronda was mentally unstable.
We know how it goes outside the right, trash-talking is part of the mental game. Even in real life, we do hear stories, ugly stories about us just when we are about to get promoted, or just when we find our true happiness. People resort to trash-talking because they don’t know any other way to destroy your spirit. And yes, even in our lives our past, our families, our friends get dragged into the mess.
But Ronda shows us how to rise above the talk and just do it. In 34 seconds, Ronda was able to knock down Bethe. In 34 seconds the trash talk didn’t matter. In 34 seconds Bethe and the all the world were silenced. And this is how you “fight like a girl.” No talk. Just do.
