Part 1 of 2 - Great statements by Teddy Atlas on overcoming resistance before you become your true self. These comments were made in the context of his assessment of Mike Tyson as a great fighter. Because Tyson did not overcome the challenge when faced with adversity in the ring, Atlas does not consider him one of the great heavyweights. Agree or disagree, it’s a thought provoking debate.
As a coach, great things happen when you deviate from your planned script. When the weather changes. When you don’t have the equipment that you wished you had. When athletes don’t show up with self-motivation. When other coaches don’t support you. This is when you really discover your true self and your true abilities to get the job done. While we are all striving for the “perfect scenario,” remember that you will not be judged by these perfect scenarios. You will be judged when everything goes wrong. You will be judged by how you adapt and how you handle the situation.
