Muhammad Ali, you may know him as the boxer, the activist, or even call him 'The Goat'. However, people sleep on the fact that he may have been one of the greatest poets and motivational speakers of all time. Here are 8 ways Muhammad Ali's motivational words can help your hustle!
"Don’t count the days. Make the days count."
Don’t dwell on what you do not have. Work until you have it all.
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
“Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you're going to be right.”
Nobody knows what the future holds.
"I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was."
Drake said this in a song once. My teacher used to make us repeat this phrase “If I believe, I can achieve.” It is true! If you continuously motivate yourself to be great, eventually you’ll make greatness.
“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.”
I personally hate dreaming. Because once I awake, it’s all gone. But if you dream of having a million dollars , you know what you should do. Wake up and go to work until you make a million dollars (or more).
“The service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.”
This is financially deep. Ali was too woke.
“I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest.”
Don’t just keep your motivational message to yourself. Spread the word, we can all be successful.
“I am an ordinary man who worked hard to develop the talent I was given. I believed in myself, and I believe in the goodness of others.”
Work hard to perfect your craft. There is never a time you should feel you have made it. Because once you do, it is then your responsibility to raise the bar as high as you can for as long as you can.
Muhammad Ali dropped bars harder than a lot of rappers that are out today. The man is an icon not only because of his moves in the boxing world, but an icon due to the moves he made in the entire world.
