Impact on Others LivesAt the time of Muhammad Ali, there was still racial tension going on, and people always judged Muhammad by how he looked. He didn’t like this, so he let it all out on the punching bag. One lesson I learned from Muhammad Ali is, to always keep trying, and stay confident in what you believe. I used this in my own life, by staying confident in basketball even no I wasn’t good at it, and now I am good.
