Visit for the complete show notes of every podcast episode.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The boxing fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr.
  • The things I realized from the fight

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t overlook what’s in front of you, thinking too much about the future. There’s nothing wrong with setting goals, but if you’re always setting goals and striving towards them, you may just overlook what’s in front of you.
  • Don’t miss out on the joy in your day-to-day life. Rather than worrying about that one-year, three-year, five-year, ten-year goal, be present and take joy in the here and now.

Action Steps:

  • Be present.
  • Be prepared.
  • Always fight back.

Leanne said:

“Life, in a lot of ways, is a little bit like a boxing match. You get a lot of punches thrown at you, you’ve got to bob and duck to avoid those shots, you’re going to have to take some, but hopefully, you’re going to throw a lot back as well and keep moving yourself forward.”

“If there isn’t a lot of joy in your day-to-day living, change something.”
