- George Forman’s Guide to Life
- Keeping Your Eye on the Prize
George Foreman: A mugger and street brawler at age 15, George Foreman saw his life going nowhere but from one cheap bottle of wine to another.
George saw an athletic idol on a television commercial saying, “If you have dropped out of school and want a second chance in life, then the JOB CORPS is for you.”
George redirected his life from alley fighting and dedicate himself to a single task – boxing; he (George) had the potential to be a world champion.
After winning the Gold Medal in the heavyweight division of the Olympics, George walked around inside the ring waving a miniature American flag.
When asked, “Why,?” George said, “I wanted everyone in the world to know I was an American and proud of the opportunity that I was given to do what I had done.”
GEORGE FOREMAN became the HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD.
