“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.”

-Muhammad Ali, 1961

There has been many talented athletes that have come and gone through the years, that pushed the boundaries and did things on their own terms.

When we look back on the life of arguably the greatest fighter ever to live, I won’t think upon any of his legendary fights.

I’ll think about the things he did when nobody was looking.

I’ll think about his chip on his shoulder to continue to dominate his competition to add another stroke to his well deserved ego.

Work ethic & determination can not be taught.

You either have it, or you don’t.

In a time when adversity was at the forefront and giving up and throwing in the towel would have been easy, he chose to walk through the fire with a bullseye on his back and did it with pride and more confidence than anyone watching or competing in his fights.

Rest Easy Champ!!
