Are you sitting in the stands, watching the fight?
Are you in the boxing ring taking the jabs, crosses, uppercuts, and hooks?
You didn’t train, suit up, and prance to the ring to sit and watch, did you?
Receiving the bruises, bumps, scratches, and occasional ear bites, is how you know you’re in the fight.
If these set-backs aren’t happening in your career search, you might be enjoying the popcorn from afar, a little too much.
Stay in the ring, punches will be thrown, stick and move, wear ear muffs, and keep fighting.
“I got one eye and he not impaired, he’s got ears, if he takes one I’ve got another one I’m ready to fight.” ~Mike Tyson post interview on biting Evander Holyfield’s ear (1997)
