A few weeks ago the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali passed away. I wrote about it and you can see it here.
For those of you who didn't read what I wrote, basically I said that Ali made an impact. He was in your face both in the ring and on the television.
Another great sportsman is Diego Maradona. Diego Maradona is arguably the greatest football (soccer) player ever. I say arguably because Brazilians are going to say that Pele was the best. Well, that is for those South Americans to fight about and maybe even some Portuguese might say that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best.
Maradona hasn't played football for 20 years but he is still considered a god in his native Argentina. We also remember both his on-field and off-field antics. English fans will remember, not very well mind you, his 'hand of god' goal against England at the 1986 World Cup. We also remember his drinking, his drug addiction and his obesity. We sometimes see him going crazy watching his beloved Boca Juniors team in Buenos Aires.
He is far from been someone who has retired gracefully. He has managed teams. He has dabbled in politics. He is still putting himself out there. He is still making an impact.
Now, I'm not saying that you should get addicted to drugs or put on 100 kilograms, what I am saying is that you need to make an impact somehow.
So, what is it going to be? How are you going to make an impact? How are you going to make a difference in the world?
These are all things that you need to think about as you make that transition.
