Mind States: Mental Trifecta for Performance Part 2 – Fun

With fun, we have two types of fun:  One is lighthearted and renewing; while the other is tension fueled escapism.

The difference is awareness.

In some respects it’s easy to get the escapism and awareness based fun confused because they both can feel great, but awareness based fun is generally more relaxed and subtle.

To Jiu-Jitsu, awareness based fun enhances everything we do and/or steers us back in the right direction.  Yes, you can still have worldly success without it, but you’ll likely be out of balance and won’t enjoy it ala Scrooge:

On the other hand, with an ‘aloha’ fun in mind, you can have everything with nothing.  It’s all about the feeling!:
