      Fabulous. I want to spend time with each of these. I was an avid boxing fan back when Muhammad Ali came on the scene as Cassius Clay. He was to boxing, like Tiger Woods is to golf. Just made the sport the most exciting event to watch. And the grace with which he handled his Parkinson’s Disease was inspiring. I remember how emotional it was to see him carry the Olympic torch to start the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

      Wise words from a strong man, inside and out.

      It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.

      We attract the energy we believe so much in.

        We become what we believe.

        “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”

        Take care of yourself, take the pebbles out of your shoes and use them to help fill a hole in your path. Believe in your truth it’s the only one we have.

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