Make OCD work for you

One of the great lessons from the greatest welterweight fighter in the history of mixed martial arts, Georges St-Pierre, is that you can take Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and make it work in your favor. GSP says he has suffered from the ailment and was able to channel that obsessive energy into his craft and goal of becoming the UFC welterweight champion. He takes the mentality of that of Bruce Lee, who said that he did not fear the man who practiced 1000 techniques one time each; but rather feared the man who trained one technique 1000 times, minimum. St-Pierre falls into the latter category and channeled his OCD in a way that made him into a champion. This can be done by anyone who wants to channel seemingly negative aspects of their psyche into a positive manner.
