Mike Tyson: "Most guys are pretty much intimidated. They lost the fight before they even got hit."
During the initial consult, I can often tell when a new patient will stick around for the long haul or drop out of treatment early.
Their attitude tells me whether or not they're just going through the motions of turning each untouched stone.
But when I see that spark of curiosity, not borne of desperation but from questioning if there is more to fertility and improving egg quality than meets the eye, that's when I know I have something to work with.
And that's all I need - that little spark of hope. Because that can be nurtured to bloom into the confidence that they are course correcting their health. And in doing so, setting themselves up for the best possible outcome.
Below is an excerpt of a powerful takeaway from Tyson. You can listen to the clip here:
"When I come out I have supreme confidence but I m scared to death. I'm totally afraid. I'm afraid of everything. I'm afraid of losing. I'm afraid of being humiliated. But I was totally confident. The closer I get to the ring the more confident I get. The closer, the more confident. The closer the more confident I get. All during my training I've been afraid of this man. I thought this man might be capable of beating me. I've dreamed of him beating me. ... I've always stayed afraid of him. The closer I get to the ring the more confident I get. Once I'm in the ring I'm a god. No one could beat me. I walk around the ring but I never take my eyes off my opponent. I keep my eyes on him even if he's ready and pumping. He can't wait to get his hands on me. I keep my eyes on him. I keep my eyes on him. I keep my eyes on him. Then once I see a chink in his armor, boom, one of his eyes may move, and then I know I have him."
Your opponent is your fertility challenge. Most likely poor egg quality.
Keep your eyes on it.
Train yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually to beat it.
So you can have supreme confidence in your body that it knows what it's supposed to do.
You got this.
