“Everyone has plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
One of my favorite quotes ever from one of the most terrifying boxers ever, Mike Tyson.
He meant it literally. But it applies to every area of your life.
In bizness? You’re gonna get punched in the mouth.
In relationships? You’re gonna get punched in the mouth.
With your health? You’re gonna get punched in the mouth.
You can have the best “plan” there is.
But shid changes as soon as you get punched in the mouth.
I recently started going to mixed martial arts classes.
My first class was for Muay Thai… which is a martial art using punches, kicks, knees, and elbows.
We’re going through kicking, punching, and knee drills. Then I get paired up to hit pads with this girl.
The second kick she throws smashes me directly in the grapes.
I had a cup on but there’s a vulnerable spot at the bottom if you have perfect placement. And boy did she hit it perfect.
I went down for a solid 5 minutes.
Everyone’s got a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Or in this case, kicked in the nuts hah.
So… what’s this got to do with ya ?
You can spend hours coming up with the perfect plan.
You can spend weeks mentally masturbating about what the perfect niche is.
Or the best color for your website.
Or if your email is gonna work.
Or if your cold email is gonna get responses.
But you’ll never know until you just get in the ring and see for yourself.
So don’t worry about having the perfect plan. It’s OK to change things once you get started.
Everyone’s got a plan until they get punched in the mouth. And you’re 100% gonna get punched.
Have a plan that is “good enough” and adjust as you move along.
