It’s been a long time coming but the first proper installment of The Luck Factor and BJJ is here. Below is the outline on what is covered in the video.

Principle 1: Maximise your chance opportunities.

‘Lucky people create, notice and act upon chance opportunities on and off the mat.’

Sub-Principle 1 – Lucky people build and maintain a strong ‘Network of luck’.

Sub Principle 2 – Lucky people have a relaxed attitude towards life.

Sub-Principle 3 – Lucky people are open to new experiences in their life

*Slight ammendment to the quote in green above from the picture.

Hope you find the video useful, stay tuned for the next one and I look forward to your comments and feedback.

Thanks for watching.

It’s been a while…but I’m back from the future with a new mini-series in the form of video articles.

As promised I’m documenting my interpretations of Prof. Richard Wiseman’s – The Luck Factor, with BJJ.

The first video is an introduction before we get down to the nitty gritty.

The next video with be posted online within a few days and subsequent videos on a weekly basis thereafter.

Thanks for sticking around and emailing me berating me to publish more stuff for ConceptualBJJ.com. Remember, without you guys, I’d just keep all this stuff in my head tightly sealed away forever.

Thanks again,

Adam Adshead

I’m Currently reading a fantastic book called The Luck Factor by Richard Wiseman.

The Luck Factor by Richard Wiseman

I’ve had the book for absolutely ages and have even seen the TV shows but have only just got round to reading it.

Anyway the book shows you how simple behavioural techniques can help you increase your chances of being lucky, now we’re not talking lucky in terms of winning the lottery but things like maximising on chance opportunities and being positive. Although in principle the ideas presented will help you in your everyday life, I see a massive crossover that could be exploited in BJJ. Therefore as I’m reading the book, I will update you all on my findings and the correlation certain principles have in BJJ.

Stay tuned, I’m working on the first article and I think you’ll find it really interesting.
