Any sport or domain that involves performance comes with limitations. Whether you are a singer, dancer, artist, footballer, tennis player, rugby player,... You must push yourself through those limitations to be able to see what your true value is.
You have probably heard this before: “ In live you can achieve whatever you want as long you work hard and believe in yourself”.
This is so true but I have my own perception of these words. Let me explain.
Here's another expression you hear all the time:
“To have opportunities you need to be at the right place and the right time”.
Again true, but I believe you also have to create the opportunities.
Being in a specific place at a specific time once, won’t necessarily get you what you want. Being consistently in different places where opportunity might be present, will increase your chances, even though nothing is ever guaranteed.
Take a Footbal team for example. Players are required to turn up to training and train 5-6 days a week to increase their chances to succeed, and eventually, victory.
Opportunities don’t come often but by constantly being on the go to create them, you will at some point make it happen.
Once you understand that, expressions like the one mentioned above will make more sense and you will be ready to apply that to your life.
It goes without saying that on top of that you have to be willing to put time, effort, commitment, dedication, consistency, and work ethic in to get results.
So why is it so important?
In my opinion it’s because you don’t want to have “Any regrets “.
Be a taker in this life, put everything in your power to make things happening, don’t wait untill the perfect opportunity suddenly opens up, and keep pushing untill you see the end.
Remember, it is not the destination that matters, it is the journey.
Can you really claim to be or become somebody if you haven’t put everything on your side to be this person?
When a person tells me how much they would like to become a boxer and have a fight, I take their requests seriously but warn them that it won’t be an easy path. Only the most resilient people succeed.
Nothing comes easy in this life, you have to be prepared to pay a price with everything I mentioned above.
Beautiful sports like Boxing will give you tools and teach you values to strengthen yourself and prepare you to face the world.
