Adrian Clark is launching a book, Protect Yourself at All Times. Clark, who created AC Sports Management, helps young and talented boxers go in the right direction in their career in and out of the ring. Clark was recognized by Forbes “30 under 30” which looks at some of the brightest minds in sports under the age of 30.
Leading up to the release of his book we’ll be exclusively sharing the 12 rounds (12 Chapters) on #TeamEverlast along with video blogs mad by Clark.
Round 6: Ego
As weird as it may seem, the person you need to protect yourself from the most is YOURSELF!
Round 6 is all about EGO and how to handle it. No one man is bigger than the sport of boxing. The sport has a way of repeating itself, every year. A star is here one day and gone the next. An upcoming prospect may have a huge buzz right now but that could disappear with one punch. The fight game stays the same… The name(s) change so it’s best for fighters to not overdose on being famous. Enjoy the publicity, money, TV time and media attention but stay on the humble. Don’t allow your ego to be fed to the point you lose who you are.
As stated in the video, you have a corner in the ring to provide insight, guidance and to see things you may not see to further protect you. It is the same thing for outside the ring, you have a team of people who may see things you don’t. If you trust these people then trust them to provide insight to lead you in the right direction. Don’t have an ego that big where you are blinded by yourself and refuse to listen to anyone.
Protect Yourself from YOURSELF!
