For me boxing is something I think about all the time. I'm terrible at school my parent's don't know. Only thing I'm hoping for is that I can get good at boxing my parents want me to be a doctor but I'm barely passing college.
When I started I didn't have enough time to train and I got in **** with my workplace because I was working less so I could train more and got fired.
my parents got pissed because I was playing a stupid sport instead of making money. My first gym pretty much ignored me and never work with me. I went to a new gym which treats me a lot better.

When I train I think of all that stuff they tell me about how I should give up on boxing and that I should work and study. How I get ignored and I just train twice as hard thinking.

A quote that I always believed in

"If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you. " - Muhammad Ali

Some videos that I watch when i feel to tired or too lazy to train
check these out , they might make you feel good too.

I watch this one when I feel like a no good piece of **** and I think about whether I should just quit boxing .

competition with other people, I can never accept defeat (sounds kinda poetic and **** but its just me)

I hold myself up to a higher standard than other people hold themselves up to. I never measure up to my own standards because as I get better my standards get higher and higher and higher so I'm forced to work harder. Some people think Im nuts and a crazy athletic but I think I could be better, even when Im better.

Sounds like a rockstar, not a boxer.

That's crazy, It's exactly how I feel too man, am ignored by my parents and they don't believe that I will accomplish nothing out of boxing, plus it's not only them it's everyone! But like you say that's the motivation that keeps me going, am going to start school in a month and work the night shift, and the gym comes in between the afternoon, so am definitely not thinking about quitting the sport, I love it and I put my life in front of it first instead of school or work. I want to live life at what I want for myself and not others..

You have to believe in yourself. Your parents doubt that you're going to become the next world champion because, to be realistic, how many world champions are there? Not very many. Every time I go to my gym there's at least 20 dudes, probably half of them want to become world champions but not all are cut out to be world champions. Be a champion in life and believe in yourself. If boxing ain't your thing, at least you have that college degree to fall back on if plan number one doesn't work.

I hope you fulfill your dreams and surprise all those that have doubted you, good luck kid!:boxing:

Staying in shape is what motivates me and learning how to defend myself. I'm not that ambitious. I started boxing a little late.

I've seen alot of kids wanting to be world champs but they don't even train as much as me.
I train like 5 days a week and usually 3-7 hours a day I started about 6months ago but I'm getting better and I'm on the level of people who have trained for over a year.
