At first glance, boxing and office work really don’t have anything in common, but when you dig a little deeper, they have a number of similarities and boxing can, in fact, actually teach you quite a bit about business. Chad Howse of Addicted 2 Success discovered a surprising bit about work when he started honing his amateur boxing skills.

  1. Keep Moving Forward.
  2. Pain Is Temporary. Glory Is Forever.
  3. Don’t Go For The Knockout Right Away.
  4. The Fight Isn’t Won In The Ring, Under The Lights Of Fight Night.
  5. It’s Never Too Late.
