Muhammad Ali, one of the greatest men of the 20th century who came from a poor background, faced persecution, helped many when he could and a huge belief in himself and maintained his self-belief died last week and the world mourned.

He truly was an inspiration to all of us. He taught us all, regardless of our current starting point, should live with positive self-talk and demonstrated how all of us should see ourselves.

We are ALL the greatest, we ALL have a talent and passion and life should be about trying to make time to follow that passion. Whether we make it is a big and successful as Muhammad Ali or not. It doesn’t matter, at least you are trying. If you want to be big, you have to be ready to fail and fail many times whilst maintaining positive mindsets. It is down to our own thoughts on our experiences and beliefs on the matter, even if we don’t make it, even when we have tried so hard we can still be proud. Proud in the fact we NEVER gave up trying to achieve the top level and enhance our ability to have good life experiences.

Let us all aim to be ‘the greatest’ version of ourselves we can be.


I Am The Greatest

We all need to look at how we talk to ourselves. So often, the reason we don’t get where we want to be is that we don’t talk to ourselves in the right way. We can talk to ourselves in positive ways or we can put ourselves down. Look at How Mohammed Ali spoke to himself. He never once put himself down. It sounds like he is being arrogant but he isn’t. He ensuring that doubt cannot creep in. He is ensuring he keeps himself motivated. How can you practice the same thing?

Start by writing a list of 10 things you have either overcome or achieved. It can be getting through school and getting good grades. Or that you attended university and completed the degree. It could be raising children. Or maybe coming from a difficult family and still being kind and compassionate. Focus on your positive life aspects and put this paper beside your bed. Every time you wake up look at it. Remind yourself of your positive aspects not the doubts and frustrations but the fact you’ve overcome them.
