10 Life Lessons From Muhammad Ali

Delivered with the kind of swagger and charisma that’s impossible to replicate, Muhammad Ali dropped some seriously smart life lessons over the years. Take some notes.

“At home I am a nice guy, but I don’t want the world to know. Humble people, I’ve found, don’t get very far.”

“It’s not bragging if you can back it up.”

“If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.”

“Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you’re going to be right.”

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

“Don’t count the days, make the days count.”

“A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”

    Muhammad Ali…great man! “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” sort of sums him up for me…so graceful and unique as a person, and yet when it was called for, he stung like a bee…thank you for a great post!
