Muhammad Ali was an American professional boxer, considered by many as the biggest start the sport.
Muhammad Ali was also a writer. He is the author of several best-selling books, where he expressed and transmitted all the teachings acquired on his career.
He started training at 12 years old, and after 10 years, by 22, he won the World Heavyweight Championship. It was just the beginning of what could have been a spectacular career.
Muhammad Ali defeated every top heavyweight in his area before retiring in 1981. After his retirement, he decided to dedicated most of his time specially to philanthropy.
This last Friday, we were loosing the biggest start of boxing of all times. Muhammad Ali has been suffering from a respiratory illness which was later complicated by Parkinson’s disease.
In 1972 when interviewed by David Frost, and asked about what he would like people to think about him when he had gone, Muhammad Ali replied:
“I would like for them to say, he took a few cups of love. He took one tablespoon of patience, one tablespoon of generosity, one pint of kindness; he took one quart of laughter, one piece of concern, and then he mixed willingness with happiness. He added lots of faith, and he stirred it up well. Then he spread it and expanded it over a lifetime. And he served each and every deserving person he met.”
The world lost an incredible man. He was an inspiration to many people, especially athletes and actors. A physical representation of hard-work, persistence, and a competitive spirit which inspired even greatest entrepreneurs.
Muhammad Ali died at 74, but his legacy will certainly live forever.
