I'm at a good place now financially but time is not on my side. I am faced with several options to focus on before I turn 30 and possibly focus on business school:
1.Career-work hard to gain a better position and acquire new skills
2.Social-work towards a serious relationship with a girl
3.Spiritual-Start boxing again so I can forget my athletic failures in high school that haunt me to this day.
I only have time for 2 out of the 3. Most people would say the obvious choices are 1 and 2, but I feel incredibly alive when I'm training, and I know that if I win an amateur title I'll be at peace with myself. Even if I don't win, maybe I can lay it to rest knowing that I went all the way.
Of course I want all 3 because I am afraid of:
1.Not being successful
2.Not meeting a classy, fun girl who loves me for who I am and not shallow things like looks or material things
3.Never being at peace with coming up short in my athletic endeavors in high school
