Martial Arts. As a young child, I got kicked in the stomach ...


and cried. Because of my size, I sparred with a kid a year older. This was back in the day when kids sparred in class (tournament style). My mom told me to stop whining and go back and kick his ass in the next match up. I kicked him in the face and got scolded by sensei. I didn't care. I made my point.

My confidence soared and was never afraid of physicality again. I was never afraid of getting hurt playing sports again.

That's just my experience. I guess it had a major impression because I remember it many decades later.
