Sports Legends Agree On What It Takes To Be Champion

September 18. 2014

Michael Jordan

Legendary sportsmen such as Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali have emphasized the importance of confidence and believing in one's abilities as an athlete. It's not an arrogance or cockiness, but a calm, assured mind fixed on the task at hand - winning and becoming champion.

Michael Jordan stated "As strong as my legs are, it is my mind that has made me a champion." The statement was in reference to his will to win, confidence in his talents and the mental grit he often displayed playing through physically grueling situations, including sickness. 

Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali also famously stated "Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill." Translation, you have to want that win bad enough and hold the skill to make it happen.

Two quotes that share the same common message that many great athletes have espoused as apart of their game plan for victory - you have to believe you can win. You have to believe you are the best. It will motivate you to your best.
