Book Review: The Fighter’s Mind by Sam Sheridan


“We’re all fighting something” – Sam Sheridan

I have a lot of respect for MMA Fighters. Those guys are not only physically tough, but very mentally tough. What goes through their mind? How do they train and come up with a game plan that allows them to succeed?

Sam Sheridan interviewed some of the smartest fight minds in the business, including Marcelo Garcia, Greg Jackson, Randy Couture, Josh Waltzkin, etc. If you want to be great, you have to be willing to do anything.

What this book really helped me realize is that with any journey, you have to be willing to fail and still make mistakes. Which is the common theme in anything you undertake.

My favorite story is the one with Marcelo Garcia where he was sleeping on the mats and the gym just so can he train brazilian jiu jitsu. Because he couldn’t afford his own place. And now he’s one of the greatest in the world at what he does.

How This Book Helps Your SongWriting

This is a must read for anyone who is serious about their craft. The most important thing in any endeavor is dedication.The one common thread with all the stories and lessons in this book is the endless hours a person has put in their craft. You HAVE to go beyond your own perceived limitations. And the only way to do that is to keep going and going and going. You have to keep fighting through.
