The Magic of the Second Round
A championship boxer does not expect to win his fight in the first round. It has been done but it is not the expectation. The first round is for checking out the situation, getting to know the opponent, so to speak. We get the big idea, then we have all the energy from that big idea as inspiration. Next we have to look at the big picture. That is the first round of our boxing match with life. The real heart of the boxer is revealed when, maybe with some aches and bruises, he climbs back into the ring. The second, and subsequent rounds are where the attention to detail, the previous training and the character of the boxer take over. The magic is in climbing back into the ring and continuing with the task until that task is done, hopefully with the awards of championship. I say to all wise magicians, if you quit early you have no chance of a win. Climb back into the ring and continue the fight. Go into your subject or task in greater depth. You are a winner just by continuing the fight. Keep on trying until you win. May the spark be with you.
