In 1954, a kid peddled across the neighborhood on his bicycle in search of free food.

There was an exhibition for black businesses and free candy, popcorn, and hot dogs were promised at the venue so the young boy got in and stayed. But after getting what he came for, he left the exhibition only to discover that his red and white Schwinn bike was gone.

Being furious, he told a policeman that what he desired most was to beat up the person who stole his bike. It was then that the policeman suggested that he had better learn how to fight before confronting people.

This was the beginning of the boxing journey of Muhammad Ali.



“I am the greatest. I said that even before I knew I was. I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I was really the greatest.” - Muhammad Ali, The Greatest.



The Science of Positive Affirmations and Why They Work

A lot of people associate self-affirmation with self-delusion and conclude that it is nonsensical, but this is a huge misunderstanding of what affirmation is. 

Whilst it is delusional to call yourself the fastest without even being an athletic person, it could be quite useful to say that to yourself if you were a runner - it could be the difference between success and failure.



But, What is Self-Love Affirmation?

Self-love affirmations are positive statements we make to ourselves that help us overcome negative and self-sabotaging thoughts.

They are words that motivate us and remind us of who we are. They are not lies nor wishful thinking – they are factual statements that need to be drummed into the subconscious.
