Does your business have a powerful punch that gives it an edge above the competition?
Boxing experts we are not, but we do know that everyone needs a well-placed punch every now and again—of course to be clear, we’re only using this as a metaphor. In boxing the left hook is considered a must for accomplished boxers because it is difficult to master and enables the boxer to deliver a gorgeous, powerful and often devastating blow to their opponent.
Business competitors and sometimes life itself comes at us delivering what can sometimes seem as unnecessary low blows and we need to come up with our own versions of a “left hook” to swing back. That might be in the form of a brand evolution, personal development, improved social media, a new website or simply a bigger push to network. It’s important to work on yourself and your business the way a boxer trains. That’s a daily commitment to condition mind and body—strategy and image.
A proper left hook places all your weight behind it and that’s the way we should be entering the ring of life when we wake up every morning; committed to fighting for the win. Committed to evolving our unique skills to realize our dreams.
Even if today you lost a round or two to the injustices of life, don’t lose the entire match because you temporarily lost your fire for the fight. Keep at it. Success favours the prepared, the determined and the bold.
