Shadow Boxing Day

Trevor shadow self portrait
Punxsatawney Phil didn't see his shadow yesterday, but that doesn't mean you can't.

If the day after Christmas is Boxing Day, the day after Groundhog Day must be Shadow Boxing Day. It's a day devoted to self-examination and intention setting.

It's been a month since many people set new year's resolutions. To those who have followed through, you have my admiration. For the rest of us, this is a day to sit down and have a frank look at why we don't do the things we plan. We'll get inside our enemy's head and psych him out. The shadow's had the upper hand and dealt us some blows, but this is the day for some fancy footwork and a surprise strike.

Today is the day we'll shine a light on what holds us back, knocking the shadow out of the way and taking charge of the situation. Not only will we do this, but I will do this and you will do this. Only I can knock out my own shadows; only you can knock out your own shadows.

Now go do what you've been putting off. When you're done, share it with the world. Brag about winning the fight with your shadow. It will give you confidence for the next round.
