Move Into The Punch
Move Into The Punch,
Achieving your goals when life is hard.
The counter-intuitive Problem Solving Secret
— to achieve your goals, overcome obstacles and enjoy life … even when it’s hard.
Moving into a punch seems like a dumb idea.
Yet boxers will sometimes move closer to their opponent to avoid being hit with full force.
As a child, I learned that I could protect my mother and brother if I moved toward my father when he was in a rage. If I moved into his attack, he could not fully extend his arm. And while I still got hit, the blows were softer. And after a while, my father’s rage would subside, and he’d stop. At least for that day.
As a child, I realized that I could not stop dad from hitting someone when he was angry.
But … I could choose to be that person.
And could find a way to reduce the hurt.
This made me resilient – even in the face of adversity, I know I have options and more control than just being a victim. But I’m not alone. It turns out that people who have lived in prisoner-of-war camps, concentration camps, and abusive childhoods fall into two categories:
Most people, two out of three, become victims.
But one out of three become stronger. They become more resilient, confident and stronger.
After the death of my mother and father, I wanted to share what I learned as a boy on how moving into your problems will help you achieve your goals, even when life is hard, or when you set hard goals.
