We had the privilege and blessing of attending the Glazer-Kennedy Info Summit here in Atlanta over the last few days. The keynote speaker on Thursday was former 2 time heavy weight boxing champion & entrepreneur George Foreman.
I really liked his quote
“Don’t get scared, get hungry.”
~ George Foreman
He talked about two times in his life he really had to live that quote. The first when he was young and trying to get off the streets of Houston, and the second when he was in his 40’s, broke and needing to make a comeback.
Seems to have worked both times – he became the heavyweight champ the first time and then the second time, at age 44, became the oldest boxer to ever win the championship.
We laughed out loud about his explanation of why he named all four of his sons George.
When someone asks him why he asks “Do you know the name Ali, do you know the name Joe Frazier, do you know the name Ken Norton? Try getting hit in the head by them over and over and see how many names you can remember?“
Just for fun, check out the size of his fist in the picture…
