“Eye of the Tiger” (Rocky lll), the first in a series

January 27, 2011

You have found your purpose. You have a dream or goal. You know there will be many hurdles, obstacles, and distractions that could throw you off.

See this as though you are an athlete in a competition. Let’s make you a boxer. Your opponent will use anything they can to defeat you. If they can’t beat you physically, then they will beat you mentally, or both. So, like an athlete you train to prepare yourself for the fight and the opponent. This way you are mentally and physically prepared. No matter how much you train though, the real fight is always at least a little different and there will be the unexpected.

So now, sing along with me, “It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight, rising up to the challenge of our rival”, Survivor.

The last thing you want to do is give your opponent an edge, a weakness that they can exploit.

“I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–which is: Try to please everybody.” — Herbert Swope

First of the Eye Of The Tiger series
