These days, whenever someone mentions the sport of boxing, we think about “fight parties” and pay-per-view. We know the names of the majority of the heavyweight champions, and we celebrate their victories with a lot of enthusiasm. We sometimes hate on them because of all of those millions of dollars they earn … even when they …
For the record, I am aware that the NBA is a business. I believe that players should feel free to make the decisions that are best for them and their families. You’ll notice that I’m not mad at LeBron because he left Cleveland. I probably would have stayed, but that’s just me. As a Lakers fan, I was hoping he would go somewhere else and level the playing field some. I even hoped that the Heat would turn out to be all that they thought they would be already.
My trainer (let’s call him Coach) is a pretty nice guy, all things considered. That is, until we step into the gym.

The organs, tissues and cells in our bodies are made to withstand only so much damage before they begin to deteriorate. When we smoke, drink too much alcohol, fail to exercise on a regular basis and don’t sleep enough, we are not just doing things that cause us not to feel our best, we are actually doing damage to our bodies that we cannot necessarily see or feel right away.
What value would you attach to talent? What price would you be willing to pay someone for their dedication? How about for your intensity and even plain old ability? Seriously…take a moment and think about this.
