Do it with passion, or don’t do it at all.
– I’ve seen this quote around a few times, never with an author. But it is so true. Boxing is a passion of mine. It is something that to be good at, you must have self discipline, motivation and a good coach.
Boxing is more than just learning how to punch. It’s more than that. It’s self respect, its stamina and speed. Boxing is a sport that is under appreciated, and over looked, much like I am.
I am an underdog. I am someone who never was supposed to succeed at life. I had set back after set back, definitely missed that white privilege handout But I didn’t let that define me. I didn’t let my parents hard work go to shame, or my self respect for that matter.
I dug deep, busted my rear and did work.
Success isn’t about the trophies, the awards or the fame. Success is about dedication, hard work and drive. If you have no self control to keep yourself on track, you will have a hard time being successful. Nobody is going to do the burpees for you. Nobody is going to run that mile for you. If you don’t do the work, you’ll never see the rewards.
