“Being underestimated is a superpower. Let them underestimate you because then they will not be on their guard.”
Maija Solderholm is a martial arts expert with decades of experience training with the likes of Sonny Umpad. Sonny taught her an invaluable lesson: To use being underestimated as a superpower. He would often set up tests, like making her spar with other men. She soon learned that it was a great way to understand people, as they revealed their true character when they had to confront the reality of being beaten by a woman. Through this, Maija learned to be comfortable in uncertainty and to navigate the ultimate conflict of two human beings.
In this episode, you will learn the following:
- How does one handle themselves in the ultimate conflict?
- Is being underestimated a superpower?
- What does it mean when someone reacts to being mildly humiliated?
Thanks again and welcome to Good Life Stories.
