Achieve the Impossible
Two of the most legendary fighters in combat sports give an interview about the process of making your dreams come true when coming from nothing.
Conor McGregor: The 188 was what I used to collect on the social welfare.
Speaker 2: Yes.
Conor McGregor: Every day I was daydreaming it. But of course I can go back and think there. I live there in my head, you know what I mean? I’ll always be there. I show up and work every single day like I’m not in the position I’m in, like I’m not me, so that’s the mindset I have.
FloydMayweather: Thing about me, I don’t forget where I come from.
Speaker 4: Neither do I.
FloydMayweather: I come from poverty. I come from poverty. I come from the hood. I come from the streets. I’m the American dream. I worked my way from nothing to something.
Conor McGregor: People have doubted me, my whole way up. This has been a bit more intensified, the doubt and the criticism. So I’m just gonna relish in it. The aim is to prove myself, my supporters and my fans and the people that are with me, prove them correct. And then the second aim is to prove the doubters wrong. That’s it. So we will do that August 26th. We will relish in it. Thankfully all the criticism and all the doubts, it’s been all recorded. So I’m sure we will all have a good time looking back and seeing what they said then to what they say after.
FloydMayweather: When you’re in a certain position, they try to defeat you in many different ways. They feel like it’s pressure on me. Like I said, they try to defeat me in many different ways. They try to bring up the tax thing, they try to bring up, “He’s been locked up, he’s arrogant, he’s unappreciative.” Years and years and years, they’ve been trying their best to defeat me mentally. I can’t be defeated.
Speaker 2: Do you remember the first time that the thought of fighting Floyd Mayweather crossed your mind?
FloydMayweather: Actually, I asked for the fight. I think it was kinda mutual. I think I wanted the fight, pretty sure he wanted to fight.
Conor McGregor: How many times have I said I’m gonna do something then I go and do it? It wouldn’t be the first time, it certainly won’t be the last. It’s a dream come true for me and honor to be able to reach his level.
FloydMayweather: I’m strong, smart, patient, and-
Conor McGregor: If you work hard, you can achieve great things.
FloydMayweather: You have to do what makes you happy. And Floyd Mayweather gonna do what makes him happy.
Conor McGregor: If you can see it here and you have the courage enough to speak it, it will happen.
