A good fighter must know there are 12 rounds in boxing and sometimes it actually goes the distance. Therefore one doesn’t exhaust all their energy when they first enter the ring unless they actually smell blood. They must also prepare to take a few hits without a quick response so as to leave the opponent so confident that it opens them up to a nice uppercut. Those in the political ring especially at the highest office must way their punches and hits they take even more carefully. They can’t believe they have the Trump every time and instead must be patient with their hits sometimes leaving it to others to enter the ring. A great hidden is so well hidden that their opponent doesn’t even realize they were hit till they taste their own blood. In the end, defeat is bittersweet when you have all the resources to win but waste them on punches that just knicks the opponent.
