Renzo Gracie on how to measure success, it’s all about the people around you. The world famous black belt says he expected to live in a gym, using his gear as a pillow. We all know he is not doing that, the fighter has had a great career and has reaped the monetary benefits. Gracie, while grateful, cares more about people.
He told a story about an old coach who had helped young men train and move out of the ghetto. This is what he considers true success, helping others and sticking to your beliefs. He made it clear that while money is valuable it is not the most valuable thing you can have in your life.
