S2-E43 – RIP Muhammad Ali – Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion.

“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.” ~~ Muhammad Ali

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali, originally named Cassius Clay, was undoubtedly The Greatest boxer of all time. If you don’t believe it, just ask him. I remember as a little boy watching Ali fight. I remember listening to him talk and bicker with Howard Cosell, the sportscaster and journalist and a self-labeled “arrogant, pompous, obnoxious, vain, cruel, verbose, showoff.” They made boxing fun to watch.

The one thing I learned from Ali was to be yourself, be different, be what you want to be.

Ali was a heavyweight in the boxing ring and in life. He fought many boxers and was the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World. He not only fought boxers in the ring, he fought the U.S. establishment, racism and stereotype to become one of the most respected sports figures of the century.  He was crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated.

Regardless of your opionion of his brash and controversial style, you will always remember Muhammad Ali. You will be inspired when you read about him and hear him speak. His quotes are legendary, honest and insightful.

His quote above is remarkable in the amount of wisdom he shared. As Goalcast said in their blog post – Top 10 Quotes from Muhammad Ali, “I leave you with a bonus quote that should encourage you to be ambitious and think big. Its is longer, but it’s so amazing, almost every part can be quoted”.

Check out the Top 10 Quotes on their blog. They are all inspirational.
