We've lost those we've never heard of and those we worshipped from afar. The famous and the
infamous. Those whose poetry and music and performances and stories and athletic prowess and acts of heroism and sacrifice we admired. We counted on them to help us get through the trials and tribulations of our lives.

Self-confidence as a skill that anyone can build, practice and master. It is the belief in your ability to accomplish the task at hand, no matter the odds, no matter the difficulty, no matter the adversity. Self-confidence is like a muscle. The more you practice, the stronger it gets.

Ali was one of the greatest human beings of all time. What made Ali great was not his boxing skills, chiseled looks or mercurial eloquence. What made him great was the nobility of his character; his courage to speak truth to power and stand up for what he believed in. No matter the cost.

True transformational leaders defy conventional stereotypes and societal boundaries. No one illustrated this better than the late, great Muhammad Ali. Born Cassius Clay in the racially segregated city of Louisville, Kentucky, he didn't just break the mould of what it means to be an African-American athlete and role model -- he blew it to smithereens.
His unwavering principle is something to marvel at. Principle supported by action. He didn't just talk the talk (which in itself he was highly-skilled it and evidenced in a litany of piercing quotes). He backed it up with action -- which was usually followed by some degree of conviction and courage -- cause being your own man is usually a road riddled with potholes, even in the best of times.

For what it's worth, I'm one who thinks Louis in his prime was arguably the greatest of all heavyweights. He fought every contender in the golden age of boxing winning 21 on his title matches by knockouts. Unmatched for power, hand speed, ring strategy, heart.
