Only a man who knows what it’s 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.

Be a fighter, know the failure. Once you dig the suffering deep, you come up with invaluable sense of power and ownership.

You lose nothing when fighting for a cause. In my mind the losers are those who don’t have a cause they care about.

Stand up for the rights of humanity as you tread the path of success. People who give back to the world are the souls who have lived a meaningful existence.

The man with no imagination has no wings.

You cannot excel in your business if there is no imagination. Do not hesitate to apply your imagination. Deign to fly higher with your great imagination.

Inside of a ring or out, ain’t nothing wrong with going down. It’s staying down that’s wrong.

Keep working, keep fighting, keep delivering till the success if achieved. Keep going even after getting there. You have to excel the person you were yesterday.

If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it — then I can achieve it.

Attune your mind and heart. Be a ‘possibility’ thinker. Nurture your brain and emotions with successful outcomes. Wake up everyday to pursue them. There is no stopping you.

The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.

It’s good to dream, not day dream. Get up and go to work. Good day or bad day, everyday is important to accomplish your dreams.

He who’s not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

You cannot traverse in the comfort zone and expect something mind blowing to happen. Take risks. Work hard. Push your limits. That’s how it’s done.

To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.

It’s all about what you think you are. Envision yourself as a champion inside your head, that’s what you will eventually become.

Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them — a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.

Have a will power that is stronger than iron. Make a reach for what you want to achieve in life. What you carry forward in the form of desire and vision will pave way for the strategy as well.

I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.

The more you suffer, the better are the results.

Rest in Peace, Champion.

Do a solid ❤ Heart for #AliTheGreatest
