My mission is to go and destroy, and not let anything get involved. You punch, you get hurt, I refused to get hurt, knocked down, or knocked out. I can't lose, I refuse to lose.
The intensity of that quote says it all
I try and do many things, some work, some do not, many do not.
One thing that gives me an edge on a hard job is that I make sure that whatever I do, whatever job is on, that I bring the focus and drive to get it done. .
I make sure I am focused and bring my full attention and intensity to every task and every work day. Every time. I go hard and di what it takes to win.
When I enter into a task, or a pull into a parking lot to do a job, I instantly take the mindset of Mike Tyson in 1986. At that time, in that year, he was unstoppable.
My brain just switches on that way. It is automatic now.
On the way to work, while I am in the car, I may listen to podcasts or have the Black Keys playing loud or laughing at a radio show but once I am at the job, I go all Mike Tyson 1986.
The Mike Tyson I am talking about is the man in 1986, before everything went wrong and he was making stunning progress, winning fight after fight, before success and the loss of his mentor derailed him. At that moment in time, he was simply the best.
I am talking Mike Tyson at the beginning, back when his coach Cus D'Amato was still there to help guide him. That Tyson was awesome.
Every time he entered the ring, he entered stripped down, no socks just the shoes, and a plain set of black trunks. No glitz, no gold, just a man ready to go.
When he was interviewed why he was dressed so simply, I remember him saying that he wanted no comfort, this wasn't the time or the place.
He was there to work, get the job done, destroy and eliminate anything that stops the job from getting done.
He was a warrior, a man on a mission.
He meant it, he wanted to it to be hard, he was ready for it to be a battle, he was ready, and his focus, drive, and intensity were awesome and amazing.
That is how I approach each task, each job, each business opportunity.
I Mike Tyson it.
