“Doing what you hate to do, but do it like you love it”
– Mike Tyson
Coming back to box at age 54 and he hasn’t sparred in 15 years. When asked on the Joe Rogan podcast about the experience of coming back to box and why he’s doing it he said (my summary):
I was out of shape and wanted to feel better. Getting back in shape was the first step that leads to the next. More energy and more fire inside. Once the fire was lit I wanted to see how far I could push myself.
When asked how it’s felt:
Painful, humbling, exhilarating! In order to train at that level you need to do what you hate to do, but do it like you love it!
What is in your way that you hate to do but know it’s necessary to get to your big hairy audacious goal?
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
