"Whats my name?" - Muhammed Ali
Inspiration is what drives me, it keeps me interested it keeps me motivated. Lots of things inspire me, I'm forever making hair contact before I make eye contact. Hair is not the only thing that inspires me though.
One client in particular really got me thinking when he asked me why I post Ali on my instagram and if I actually like boxing. I don't like many sports, boxing I do like. I remember the first fight I watched was the one when Tyson bit off Holyfields ear in 1997 I was 11, from that point on I thought I like this sport.
Another client Kris that is a boxer and that has also done Muay Thai taught me a lot about boxing. He is an Ali fan and what he said to me about him stuck in my head and made me like him more. He said that technically Ali wasn't the best fighter but he had the most determination. He also taught me if I ever do get into a fight go for the ear, dig in to the top of the ear and tear down! I thought that was funny.
The reason why I posted my first Ali picture and quote was because someone said to me once "it's not what you say, it's what you do".
People that actually "put there money where there mouth is" and not are just all talk are inspiring to me as that takes great strength and lack of fear. Muhammed Ali is someone that I think is definitely that.
In a world where social media has allowed people to be perceived how ever they want to be perceived instead of who they really are to find people that do more then what they say or actually do what they say is inspiring to me. I value people that I have in my life that are real and are unapologetic about who they are. Ali said he was the greatest and he became the greatest.
He looked at his job the way everyone should. He set himself goals and he achieved them. Ali has some of the best quotes of all time my number one would have to be - "If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it - then I can achieve it"
Thank you for reading and allowing me to express what ever I want to talk about on my blog, this blog is for my clients. It was never meant to just be about hair or a way for me to gain new clients. I am having a lot of fun with it I always get so excited when someone has told me they read it. Frances xx
