The man who called himself “The Greatest” died yesterday at the age of 74. The boxer Muhammad Ali, not only lived up to that moniker as three times heavyweight champion of the world, but he was also a civil rights campaigner, and a visionary. He was every bit the showman – a silver-tongued, an anti-establishment figure whose battles, both in and out of the ring, transcended barriers of race and religion.
His vision, and passion and outlook on life can inspire every human being, and there is much that can inspire the entrepreneur.
Here are just 5 Ali quotes to ensure that you live your personal and business life to the full, and succeed in whatever battle you have to fight.
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
“Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.”
“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it.”
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life”
“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”
