In memoriam: Muhammad Ali’s 14 beste loopbaantips

Written by Michel Jansen 4 juni 2016

Wow. Wat een nieuws. Muhammed Ali is niet meer. De wereld is in rouw. Muhammed Ali was een groot kampioen en inspirator voor velen.

Ik heb vanmorgen, terwijl ik mijn sessies op Boost Your Future voorbereidde, een aantal van zijn wijsheden verzameld. Deze verwijzen niet alleen naar sport, maar kun je erg goed gebruiken als advies voor je professionele loopbaan. Laat je inspireren. ‘CAUSE LEGENDS NEVER DIE!


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

2. “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.”

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

4. “What you’re thinking is what you’re becoming.”

5. “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.”

6. “If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it.”

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

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

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

10. “Often it isn’t the mountains ahead that wear you out, it’s the little pebble in your shoe.”

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

12. “The man with no imagination has no wings.”

13. “The Service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.”

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

Rust zacht, kampioen!
