“Life begins at the end of your comfort zones.” – Anonymous

From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual” by Arnold Kunst
I was 15 when Floyd Patterson, at 21, became the youngest heavyweight champion in history. I remember how impressed I was. What got my attention was that he had a coach - what was that about anyway?! And I thought, "He's at the top - when does a guy get to coast anyway?"
Wrong take-away, right? It was only when I got older that I learned the right take-away: a coach is worth his weight in gold; choose him carefully, follow his lead to get to the top, continue to follow his lead to remain at the top. I don't know what you do, but you must get a coach. Unless, of course, you’re ok thinking like a kid?
