10:30am – 11:30am
Didn’t get much sleep last night and woke up feeling not ready for the workout that was coming, but I got up anyway and went to Gracie PAC for a private with coach Vince.
Somehow I did 6, 4 minute rounds with 30 seconds of rest in between each, while keeping technique clean until the very end. I finished up with a round of alternating speed ladder drills with pyramid punches. I surprise myself how hard I am able to push myself, so far past my supposed limits. Vince also plays no small part in that process, there is no way any other coach could inspire and push me so hard to that level that I get to in our privates.
I’m thankful to have a coach like Vince to guide me and thankful to be able to give my best in my chosen labor.
“I’ve come to learn that leadership is not automatically granted to you because of your position or your salary or the size of your office. Leadership is influence based on trust that you have earned. A leader is not someone who declares what he wants and then gets angry when he doesn’t get it. A true leader is someone who is going someplace and taking people with him, a catalyst for elite performance who enables people to achieve things they wouldn’t achieve on their own. A leader is someone who earns trust, sets a clear standard, and then equips and inspires people to meet that standard.”
