Boxing is a poor man’s sport; most of us come from the ghetto to the ring. It’s a natural transition. In the hood, if you’re willing to commit violence, you get respect. In boxing, the most violent man is usually the winner and the winner gets respect. Even the loser gets respect if he fights hard and brings the heat. But unlike the street, there are rules in a boxing match. [Read more…] about Courage in Violence
So it’s time to beat this horse again even though its been killed numerous times. At the very least we’re going to make sure it thinks long and hard before it resurrects itself for another round. My unique perspective on this issue is that I am actually in college as an adult. I fully realize there are many successful people that majored in non-stem subjects just as there are unemployed engineers (somewhere, I’m sure). But I like to play the odds that are in my favor.

A few weeks ago, I found myself in the middle of my boxing training session. Instead of the usual dose of educational work that would drill an attacking pattern into my head, the focus of the second session was for continuous repetition of a set of four attacking patterns I’d learned the day before. “How many punches can you throw in a round” was never a question asked. It was assumed I’d punch the mits non-stop. I’d punch the mits non-stop for six three minute rounds. This was on top of running my usual three and a half miles in the morning, the morning training session, and the excruciatingly difficult calisthenics that followed. This was not a day for the light of heart. Yet, I looked forward to it. [Read more…] about The Crucible
Time is the most valuable commodity there is. You will never have more of it than you do at this moment. At this moment, you are the oldest you’ve ever been and the youngest you’ll ever be. Unlike money or health, every bit of time that you lose can never be regained. Furthermore, while one can shorten or extend the amount of time they have on this planet, you have no idea (and surprisingly little control over) when your final moment will be.

Sometimes, people ask me to teach my method for staying so motivated. My answer is always the same: I can’t motivate you because I don’t even know how to motivate myself. Either you want something badly enough to do what it takes to get it or you’re content with an average—at best—existence. But, I can inspire you because I know what it’s like to be inspired. I know how to channel that feel when I feel low. I can tell you how to become inspired to achieve the only thing that matters—the life of your dreams, whatever that dream is.

Everything has a purpose. That purpose may not be profound, but you feel a variety of emotions for a reason. Emotions are your internal reaction to your external environment. Before you can have a reaction to something, you compare it to your own thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. You are checking to see if the way it appears is the way you believe it should be. When a situation meets expectations and you approve of it, you experience positive emotions. If the situation runs contrary to your expectations or you disapprove of it, you experience negative emotions. To summarize this, your emotional reaction represents the congruence between your perception and the actuality of the world. [Read more…] about The Purpose of Emotions: The Map and The Road
