BOXER’S GLASSES.

Boxers.

When they enter the ring.

Don’t wear glasses.

Because no matter how good they are.

They’re going to get hit.

Resilience.

Boxers expect to get hit.

So a big part of their focus and planning and training is the development of resilience.

Boxers prepare.

And boxers leave their glasses in the dressing room.

Great Business Leaders.

Great Business Leaders.

When they enter into business.

Shouldn’t wear their heart on their sleeve.

They shouldn’t take things personally.

Because no matter how good they are.

They are going to get hit.

With late payers.

And suppliers that lie.

With clients that don’t listen.

And employees that lie.

With orders that don’t turn up.

And sales people that lie.

Punches, unfortunately, can come in from many different directions.

Resilience.

Great Business Leaders should expect to get hit.

So a big part of their focus and planning and training is the development of resilience.

Great Business Leaders prepare.

Great Business Leaders leave the heart that others wear on their sleeve – hidden.

Great Business Leaders don’t take things personally.

Difficult.

It’s difficult to do this sometimes.

But you must.

Boxers wearing glasses.

Stepping into the ring and not expecting them to get broken.

Stupid.

Business leaders with hearts on sleeves.

Stepping into business and not expecting them to get broken.

Ditto.
