History speaks to that.

Years ago when Laura Flair and Suzanne met at Flamingo, though not their very top wrestlers, they were still very good. Their battle was titanic. Flamingo’s battles were very different than today’s 10-15 minute matches.

Some of their matches easily lasted for 45 minutes.

Having said that, when Laura and Suzanne met, they both brought their A game. Nothing was left over on the mats.

As we spin the needle forward, when FCI ranked Division One fighters Isamar and Daisy met in San Jose, we knew each would bring their best and have something to prove.

Even if Daisy was the pupil, given some of her recent engagements she was making her move and the bout with Isamar did not disappoint.

Same time period but different continent where another battle between superior fighters were waged.

We electronically traveled to the scenic Czech Republic and purchased the Light Weight Championship match between Akela and Jane.

It was short but sweet and very intense. We will admit we were even a little surprised by what happened.

The producers at Fight Pulse can barely contain their excitement. “It’s time! The final fight of the 2016 lightweight championship is between Akela and Jane, who have eliminated their opponents in the semi-finals.

There is no question that Akela and Jane are two of the most dynamic and aggressive wrestlers at Fight Pulse. FW-57, just like their first match earlier this year, FW-27, is truly a fight. It’s a fight without strikes between two young and strong women, neither of whom is accustomed to losing.

As you can read in the outline below, this match only lasts 5 minutes and ends abruptly (which is why it is offered with a discount). We will not disclose the reason of this outcome – it is shown, explained and commented on in the video by both wrestlers, quite emotionally. But the 5 minutes of action in this title is without doubt the wildest thing we have shot to date – in the short span of 5 minutes the action had to be restarted 4 times from the center of the mats. The ferocity, aggression and speed of action is beyond anything we’ve filmed so far, with FW-27, the first battle between the two released in January, this year, being a close second.

As of this match, Fight Pulse has a new lightweight champion! It’s time to find out who she is!”

We found out. Loved the match. The girls fought so hard that much of the time, especially early on, they rolled off the mats.

Now that’s what we call giving it your best effort.

“If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.”… Pat Riley

In sports and in life, endeavors that are important to us should receive our best effort. Wouldn’t you agree?

How do you know what is your best effort? The mind can play tricks on us.

We have a visiting speaker who put a lot of thought into this subject and gave their best effort to explain what that entails.

Please enjoy.

Is Your Effort Your Best Effort?

By Richard Brody

How often have you heard someone say that they were trying their hardest, or giving their best effort? We even witness individuals using a variation of this by saying that they are efforting something! However, the reality is that there is often a huge difference between someone giving an effort and someone whose effort has meaning and impact because of how someone proceeds to accomplish what he wishes to get done. The level of our effort and the eventual results generally depend on our personal commitment, combined with positive attitude, and willingness to go outside of our comfort zone to do things in a more meaningful and usually more successful and meaningful manner.

  1. How committed are you towards achieving the results you claim you are seeking? Do you simply talk the talk, or does your walk go along with that talk? Is it merely effort (meaning that you are trying), or will you commit to your highest level of excellence, using your strengths to their maximum potential, while addressing and improving in those areas of weakness, etc? How committed are you? Will you merely accept a level of marginal effort that leads to a mediocre performance, or will you actually strive to be the best that you can be?
  2. Nothing personally meaningful or impactful will ever occur to the maximum potential level unless one addresses his attitude, proceeding with a positive self – talk level that drives you to do your best every time. Those who don’t focus on their attitudes will rarely achieve because they are consistently holding themselves back by doubting, procrastinating, and being afraid to fully challenge themselves to become better.
  3. Unless someone expands his comfort zone, and proceeds forward even when he must do things that he fears or has some discomfort with, he will never achieve his maximum level or potential for personal and meaningful excellence. In most cases, that comfort zone is a form of self – restriction that creates a form of building a wall around our potential, and limiting our potential and abilities. We must accept the fact that a comfort zone is not truly about being comfortable, but rather a concession to settling to be less than we can be.

It’s never enough to merely make a limited form of effort, and simply doing as little as possible to get acceptable results. We must possess a high enough opinion of ourselves to never give any less than our absolute best efforts, and never just go through the motions!
