In The Ring With Life

Life is a fight of wills, a never-ending battle of good versus evil. Every day we wake up, we have to decide what we want to do today. Some of us have to get to work, while others don’t have a job to go to. Life is not full of fun and games, it’s a formidable foe that is relentless. Only the strong shall survive in this battle and the ones that don’t they loose hope. The fight that they once had is no longer there. When life deals a powerful blow it can take all the fight out of a person. These are the people you see every day, like a cancer victim. Yes, it’s a terrible thing to have such a disease but there countless of people that didn’t give in. They fought to the very end, some even defeated cancer. That’s the funny thing about life, it will throw all sorts of stuff your way. Drugs, alcohol, sex, money and death. Life has no mercy it will not stop, ever…

AND YOU SHOULD’NT STOP FIGHTING EITHER!!!!

When you are in the ring of life, which starts as soon as you are born there are so many challenges that lay ahead. But with every challenge, one must have motivation. Without motivation to face it, you will be defeated. So, what’s challenging you today? Really sit down and think about that for a moment. What’s stopping you from being the best thing since sliced bread? You may laugh and you should because laughter sends positive emotions to your sub-conscious and in turn relieves stress. But that’s a whole another topic. But yeah think about it. Not just pause for a moment, no…. because your brain is doing too much already. When your relaxed, calm, at ease with no distractions everything that wasn’t clear will be easier to attain.To me, boxing is more demanding physically than any other sport because a boxer has to train his entire body to lay punches and take them too. Not being good at football, baseball, basketball or hockey means that you will more than likely not make the team. Not being good at boxing will get you hurt because it’s a solo effort that puts you in that ring to battle..!!

That’s how you need to approach life and all obstacles that come your way. It’s just you, no one is there to back up and save you. Life has the prize belt and you are the contender. Nobody likes you, nobody is cheering for you, they want you to loose and loose bad. You must understand and retain this in your mind that even though you have people in your life that love and care for you; it is still your life. Yes, the support of loved ones helps a lot but what if you didn’t have that. There are way more people against you than you realize it. They want to see you fail in every aspect of life, so they can say “see I told you so”. See, life is the champion and it has so many tactics to hit you with that you can never be prepared. And I mean never…

But…

This is where you come with your counter attack and the never quit attitude.

Life hits you with an uppercut, you fall on your ass. Now you’re dazed confused laying on the ground, its count time. Will you get up, can you get up? YES…. you can get up, life is shocked it just laid its signature move to K.O. you. But you got back on your foot, you kept pushing, you didn’t stop. You took blow after blow after blow from life’s arsenal of weapons. You want that prize belt, you want to knock down life this time because NOW you truly believe you can…

This is how you must approach everything that comes your way.

Greatness is within you!!!

I Have Fear…Do you?

Yes, just like the title says, I have fear. Fear is something that can either make you a coward or give you courage. For me, it has made me a coward for years in all parts of my life since I can remember. Regret has only made that fear more powerful, so has procrastinating and let’s not forget laziness. I have been all three of these negative acts of emotion that have defeated me countless of times. My father died when I was just a teenager from a heart attack, I didn’t graduate high school so I had to get a GED. I then went to college online for a number of years and accumulated over 100k in student loan debt. I got married young to someone I really didn’t love but had a child anyway by her.

There was a point in my life that I could only hold a job for 6 months at the most. I rarely held a job for a year or more. I wasted so much of my own money trying to figure out ways to make more money and not work for someone else. Know, I want you to understand something about me. I really hate working for someone else and answering to someone else as it relates to a job. I know what you are saying, “well Reginald everyone feels that way”. Well, that’s not entirely true because some people love going to work every day. Then there are some people that love what they do but hate doing it for someone else. There are two types of people in this world, the first type of person, is the one that plays it safe by having a job to go to with benefits. This person lets call him Eric looks forward to retiring one day from his job with full benefits. Eric doesn’t take to many risks in life because he really doesn’t need to. Eric reports to work and his boss tells him what needs to be done today. Eric does what he is told but there are times hen Eric wishes he could just have his own business and do the same thing. Eric thinks about it from time to time but he lets fear take over that idea/dream. The fear inside Eric is strong that he would rather keep working for the rest of his life for someone, rather than take a chance by risking everything to start his own business.

The next type of person is a risk taker and dreamer lets call him Chris. Chris really doesn’t care too much about his job because he wants to work for himself one day. The problem is that Chris doesn’t know how to do it nor does he really know what he wants to do. Chris has the passion but doesn’t have the path. And you have to have both in order to accomplish your dreams. Fear has prevented Chris from finding that path because he has yet attempted to start it. Once he figures out that he just needs to place one foot on the path, it will pave its own way.

Fear gave me the courage to write this article because I want you guys to understand that I know how you feel and what you are going through. But I want to let you know that it’s okay to have fear but it’s not okay to be scared. When you are scared you are defeated don’t let that happen to you. Pursue your dreams, conquer your fears and I will meet you on the other side with open arms.
