Qual é a diferença entre o fracasso e o sucesso?

O que faz algumas pessoas conseguirem e outras não?

➡️ Qual é a coisa que permeia a vida de atletas, empresários, pais e qualquer um determinado a vencer?

✅Uma mudança simples que vai transformar a sua vida:🧵⬇️ Image
Quando você olha para atletas de alto nível, dos mais variados esportes, algo salta aos olhos.

Aqueles fenômenos raros, invencíveis, imortais, devem ter alguma coisa especial.

Por que eles são tão diferentes dos outros?⬇️ Image
Serão os atributos físicos e genéticos? Michael Jordan tinha menos de 2m de altura,

Se esse fosse o requisito, Yao Ming com 2,29m deveria ser o maior de todos os tempos.

E se for a estrutura física?

Esses dois abaixo não são nem um pouco parecidos fisicamente, ⬇️ Image

Saddick Adams goofed by spreading falsehoods about the whereabouts of Christian Atsu, putting out unverified information, & misleading the public.

He must apologize NOW and issue a rejoinder if he has a reputation to protect.
Ghanaian journalists are always in a haste to be the first to report the news without first authenticating their source. My friend, come out!

If you need a brief recap about the Askar Mozharov story, here it is: this fighter worked his way to the #UFC, representing himself with a 25-7 record. After thorough Fight Finder investigations, that record proved to be manipulated, and we adjusted accordingly. 1/7
Last we presented his information, and when factoring in his #UFCVegas56 loss to Alonzo Menifield, Mozharov’s pro record plummeted down to 17-14. An unprecedented transformation, to be clear, but surely that had to be everything, right?

It wasn’t, and don’t call me Shirley. 2/7
As the investigation carried on, some sources responded – for example, a Sambo Federation head informed us of the 2014 card Askar was NOT on – while others were unavailable. Recently, we reached not just the founder of one org, but the ref presiding over that org's “event.” 3/7

This is the (short) story of Askar Mozharov: This fighter had amassed a pro MMA record of 25-7 on some recordkeeping sites. He made his way to the #UFC, and recently contacted Sherdog Fight Finder to demand that losses be removed from his record. Those losses were very real. 1/10
This demand prompted Sherdog into an investigation of his record. Following a substantial review, his W-L record was updated to 19-12, where we nixed multiple fake wins and added legitimate losses. He promptly got finished by Alonzo Menifield at #UFCVegas56 in the 1st round. 2/10
The comprehensive photo- and video-filled story can be viewed here, up to the point of his #UFC debut. It’s got it all: fake names, fictional posters, bogus emails, fight fixing name it. Since that debut, more has come to light. 3/10…

Ari Emanuel on #UFC compensation: First of all, you can't think of me like football and basketball. You gotta think of me as an individual sport, whether that be tennis, golf, etc. And we're right in line with the economics there.
Two is, I don't remember the date cause we went back and we looked at dates. Our revenues increased by 21%. Our fighter comp went up 26%. In addition...that's just on the fighting side. In addition, they make money on the kit, playing cards, NFTs.
I've also spent for their health in the area of the Performance Institutes. We have a meals program for them. We now have a Performance Institute in China and we're looking to other locations, like Mexico and the Middle East,

“If you missed $MRI…”

I’m here to tell you, you haven’t missed it.

And I’m going to explain why I believe $MRI | @roganinu is the best play in crypto right now.

🧵 (1/x)

$MRI has taken over crypto Twitter the past month, and for good reason. They have revolutionized the meme coin space by tapping into the mainstream market and utilizing the tax wallet to enrich the lives of a target audience. In this case, MMA fighters. (2/x)
$MRI is a family of fight fans within the crypto space. They are utilizing their platform to shine a light on the financial struggles that fighters face. MMA fighters often have very little support while sacrificing their body/mind/health to battle for our entertainment. (3/x)

CT listen up.

There's a new meme coin on the block.


"aww here we go again."

Easy, anon.

Unlike other memes, this one's different, yeah, it's different, and it's starting a cultural phenomenon.

Pull up to the thread, leave with your ceiling missing:



It's all about dem dogs and damn DOGE started it all.

Reaching a peak Market cap near $80B, it blew the minds of MSM and the general masses.

To put $80B in perspective, DOGE's MC ranked higher than CVS, Target, Uber and AirBNB.


With that kind of bark, DOGE also got the attention of the world's richest man, and arguable one of Twitter's most infamous trolls @elonmusk.

How can we discuss meme coins and not mention the most shameless shill of all time?

A quick 🧵 thread 🧵explaining why I believe $MRI will be the #1 traded #memecoin in 2022… 👇🏽
1. The Team : $MRI dev team has made it clear that Actions, speak louder than words.

They rallied a community of #Crypto investors OVER NIGHT towards one vision. #FightingForFighters Image
2. Community : in under a week the $MRI holder count went from 0-4000.

The $MRI Fighters have been attacking Twitter aggressively, making $MRI one of the most mentioned coins next to $LOOKS & $MCC

Let’s not forget, organically Trending on @DEXToolsApp every day since Launch. Image

🧵 It's the weekend so let's have some fun. It's #memecoin season! Incredibly I've actually made money on a #dogcoin. That coin is @RoganInu $MRI. It's an incredible experience seeing the power of #crypto to rapidly mobilise a hive mind and create something unique 👨‍🦲🐶🥊 1/13
Despite success in #DeFi I've always lost money on #memecoins. I saw @ChadCaff and @chirocrypto mentioning $MRI. Good guys who put in the work, share gems with followers early, and work hard for their bags. I thought @joerogan narrative, dogs, @ufc... yeah that could work. 2/13
The marketing angle was clear, but through the team and power of the community a greater utility emerged... leveraging the treasury to support underpaid fighters. As a massive #boxing and #mma fan I love that. These guys are warriors and the pay structure is very top heavy. 3/13

BREAKING: Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father, Abdulmanap, has passed away following a series of COVID-19 complications.

Abdulmanap was 57.

My sincere and heartfelt condolences go out to the entire Nurmagomedov family and team during this terrible tragedy.

Abdulmanap has been responsible for the plethora of talent we’ve seen come out of Dagestan in recent years.

He deserves immense credit for that as well as his son’s success.

A great coach and a great role model.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov only cornered Khabib once during his son’s UFC stint.

That came last September at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi.

It meant a lot for Khabib to have his dad in his corner that day.

I’m glad they were able to share that moment together.

There was a young archer who was winning competition after competition. Riding high on success he challenged the old master to a test of skills.

The young archer let the first arrow loose and it landed dead center of the bullseye. The second found its way home too.
"Ha! Beat THAT, if you can!" he boasted.

The master smiled nodding his head slowly. "Impressive. Let's take a walk," he said as he headed towards the nearby mountain.

Up they climbed all afternoon. The master said nothing. The young challenger grew more curious.
They finally reached a deep chasm with an old fallen tree acting as a natural bridge. The master calmly strode to the middle of the log, called a distant tree as his target, took aim, and let the arrow fly.

Dead center of a tiny knot in the trunk.
