Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.; January 17, 1942) is an American former professional boxer, philanthropist and social activist. Considered a cultural icon, Ali was both idolized and vilified.
Here are some good lessons from Muhammad Ali
Never Stay Still
Ali’s movement was quick. But even if it were not as quick as it was, it would still be of benefit to him. By using constant movement, his opponents could never establish a solid base in which to strike him. He knew that this would help him stay away from hard punches and used it wisely.
Desire, Dream, Visualize
“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them — a desire, a dream, a vision.”
Do you have a burning desire to succeed? Does it keep you up at night, does it wake you up in the morning. Champions are driven to succeed, they have an inner picture of success, and they’re determined to see that picture realized.
Champions never stop until their goal is achieved, they can’t stop, and they’re on a mission.
Self Belief is the Greatest Belief
“Its lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.”
Have faith and self belief in yourself and in what you want to achieve. You can’t be successful if you don’t have self belief or lack of faith. Be a firm believer of yourself, be a firm believer of your dreams.
