5 lessons from the boxing ring

5 lessons from the boxing ring

Since I was a little boy I have spent a long time in boxing. In my recent amateur fight, I even won the area championship in the middleweight class. Boxing has taught me a lot of information about life in and out of the ring, and I would like to share some of it with you.

5 lessons from 
the boxing ring


1 It got me thinking about health and nutrition:


Unlike most young boys, I grew up in a very "normal" childhood. I ate what I wanted and didn't think much about my general health until I started boxing. Our coaches were tough on us, but they were right: we need to take care of our bodies.


Over many years of training, I started to eat better and have adopted many healthy habits in my life. It remains a passion to this day to be able to share this with as many children as possible. I recently founded a children's charity in Central and South America, where one of my main goals is to bring the sport to communities where health and fitness are neglected.


2 You never stop learning:


If you fight those who are at your level, you will never learn anything new. As you face stronger opponents, you acquire new technologies and keep growing.


The same is true outside the ring. Faced with difficult challenges, I learned to welcome them. Not only did they make me a stronger person, but I also brought out new experiences that would benefit me in the future.


3 How to stay calm in any situation:


I am sure you agree that boxing is not a stress-free sport. Not only is it physically difficult, but there is a lot of psychological fear and anxiety that can accompany it. From mental preparation before a big fight to thinking about the best ways to beat your opponent in the ring, you need to stay calm no matter what. The moment you lose your temper, you know they've won.


The same goes in life, I have gone through many times at work when deadlines were tight or less than friendly clients, but from boxing, I have learned never to give in to stress or fear and j took up all the challenges with a smile.


4 Sometimes you are affected, but the pain is only temporary:


Don't let one hit destroy you. You may feel angry, you may feel wronged, but you don't let those feelings consume you. You could feel dizzy and lose your route. Sometimes it can fall directly on your face. But you learn to get up and keep going.


This is one of the most powerful lessons I have learned from boxing. Sometimes life tries to get you out of the ring, but I learned from an early age that you never give up.


5 Control your emotions:


There are many types of boxers, with their preferred techniques. For example, brawlers are going in and you don't mind taking a few hits as long as they land some too. On the other hand, there are more strategic fighters, like chess players. They see the game as a whole and are not controlled by the actions of the opponent.


I consider myself a chess player. Quick to analyze any situation and make discreet and strategic moves to win the game. Being well organized and assessing problems well is, in my opinion, a vital skill for any business.


Life is just a game, but how we interact with it will determine our overall success and well-being. Thanks to boxing, for helping me become more confident and stronger in the face of tough challenges
