Sean Fagan has been on a journey to be a champion ever since he was a kid. It began with a simple desire to fight yet has become so much more.
This is no doubt an experience that you who are reading this may have experienced yourself. In fact, this is an experience those who pursue any subject will have gone through- be it basketball, photography, filmmaking, etc.
It becomes something more than what it was.
That's why it’s imperative that you listen to these desires and follow them. After all, what have you got to lose by just trying it out for a bit? It’s like asking someone out. What’s the big deal? Yes, you might get rejected and feel a bit embarrassed or you could find the love of your life (and you never know where that may be).
Sean followed his heart -- and it's made all the difference in his remarkable life:
What Is Your Passion?
Like discovering someone you love, it’s such a special thing when you discover something you love. And like finding a partner in life, sometimes you’ll love what you’re doing, sometimes you’ll hate it, but you will never forget the lessons you learned along the way.
When you’ve discovered a passion, it will most likely be the skill that you are best at among the others that you have. The lesson you will learn is what it’s like and what it takes to be good at something. This gives you all the lessons you will need and can apply to other skills so that you can be proficient at those as well!
For Sean, the fight lessons were life lessons. And that is what you can get no matter what skill you are pursuing.
Don’t think that studying fighting just teaches you about fighting. The traits and skills that you will build like discipline, perseverance, calmness under fire, etc. are transferable to all aspects of life. So, as you improve your proficiency with this skill, you may just find that you’re improving your proficiency at life.
You’ve only got one life. And there is no man who has emphasized this point better than Seneca the Younger, so I will leave you with this:
"What man can you show me who places any value on his time, who reckons the worth of each day, who understands that he is dying daily? For we are mistaken when we look forward to death; the major portion of death has already passed. Whatever years are behind us are in death's hands."
