Show Notes

Today I want to share a little story I read. The story is about Cus D'Amato, an infamous boxing trainer, most known for training Mike Tyson. But his influence on the boxing world went way beyond just Iron Mike.

He was one of the first boxing trainers that really focused on the importance of mentality in combat.

He really focused on the mind, not just the body. And he was interested in hypnosis, the subconscious mind, affirmations, positive psychology. And he used Mike Tyson as a star pupil to apply some of these philosophies and instill a mentality in Mike that would make him the most feared fighter alive, still one of the most iconic boxers of all time.
