For MMA- The challenge of knowing that on any giving day you can lose to anyone from one mistake. That drives me to train as much as possible and always work my ass off.
For Teaching- To make my students better than me or make them able to hang with me. I want to see my students succeed.
For my Charity Events- Listening to the trolls or people thinking I am scamming people or not going to follow through. They motivate me to prove them wrong, and I bust my ass even more to embarrass them as well as make more money for the St. Judes Hospital. Another motivation is putting MMA in the proper light. Showing the community what MMA is all about.
