The Perfect You…

Recently a few friends of mine have been giving me suggestion on what topics to write about. The latest is “write about the qualities you wish you had or who you could be more like if you could.” After pondering for a few ideas I came up with one that stands out.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

For those of you who are living under a rock… no pun intended; let me give you some background on who this man is.
His wrestling blood traces back to his grandfather,  but spreads long and wide from uncles to cousins. Dwayne started football at a young age and then wrestling training in 1995. But The Rocks career doesn’t end there his ventured in multiple movies, his most famous “Fast and Furious” series/franchise. Not only has he done movies but he has also done TV shows like “The Hero”

So why Johnson?
Dwayne has this drive about him that puts him in a mind set of anything is possible and not to be discourage because failing or not succeeding the first time you attempt something. Coming from a fans’ stand point and looking into his star struck life he is very humble and even having a action based background it seems like he is a 6ft 5in 250+lbs teddy bear. The intensity under his lift eyebrow screams FOCUS.  His determination to best the best at whatever his doing shines through. Dedication drives him to succeed and becoming the person he is today. “Success isn’t always about ‘greatness’. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work gains success. Greatness will come.” – Dwyane Johnson.

The originally  question “write about the qualities you wish you had or who you could be more like if you could.” ; those qualities are some I wish I had however being who I am and the qualities I posses may not be perfect or the best yet they’re mine and they make me, me. Don’t lose sight of who you are or what makes you, you. Your love ones see for who you are and they like you for it. There are going to be those who don’t like you,, but don’t try to please them. Be you in-spite of them. You are important and special and keep being you. Even when the road gets hard and you feel like quiting…
“Only when a hero is at his lowest can he become the greatest. That to me is the greatest super hero story of all time.” –

Thanks Amanda, good luck on your journey. Cheers

 

 

The Greatest – Part 1…

This will be a three-part series on the greatest boxers:

Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad “The People’s Champion” Ali, was born January 17, 1942. He was originally named Cassius Clay. When Cassius became older, he decided to change his name. “Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn’t choose it and I don’t want it. I am Muhammad Ali, a free name- it means beloved of God and I insist people use it when people speak to me and of me,” said Ali.

Ali was known by names. One name that continued to be heard was The Greatest. Muhammad believed, ” I’m not the greatest; I’m the double greatest. Not only do I knock ’em out. I pick the round.” Ali was one cocky fighter, but he could back it up and the fans loved him for that: “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am.”

Muhammad Ali’s boxing record is:

Total fights 61
Wins 56
Wins by KO 37
Losses 5
Draws 0
No contests 0

Ali had the record to prove he was the greatest fighter. The reason Ali became the greatest boxer was simple:  he believed he was the greatest before he even knew he was. Ali said, “the fight is won or lost far away from witnesses  behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”
