I have failed many times but I only have to succeed once to get where I want to be.
No one worth mentioning has ever had an easy road to success. In my favorite sport, boxing, the fighters regarded the best or the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT), all have at least one loss on their record. That shows that they really tested themselves and came to best the opposition.
Sugar Ray Robinson (born Walker Smith Jr.; May 3, 1921 – April 12, 1989) was an American professional boxer who competed from 1940 to 1965. Widely considered the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time, Robinson’s performances in the welterweight and middleweight divisions prompted sportswriters to create “pound for pound” rankings, where they compared fighters regardless of weight. He was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990.] In 2002, Robinson was ranked number one on The Ring magazine’s list of “80 Best Fighters of the Last 80 Years”
