The sports and business world have a lot in common. The constant competition, rivalry, passion, hard work, wins, and losses — they are all part of our every tasks. “Businesses run just like a great athlete or powerful game would. You always want to make sure you’re doing better each and every day. Making yourself stronger and your team as well,” says Jherinson Almonte, Managing Director of Critical Mass Global. Similarly, just as a great athlete could find motivation from powerful and successful individuals, entrepreneurs and business leaders can be inspired by some of the world’s best known and hard working sport’s icons. “We want to make sure that we offer some advice on confidence to help those who need it the most. Hopefully, this inspiration and motivation from some of the best athletes help students in search of answers on how they can better themselves,” mentions Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global.
Critical Mass Global believes and instills a sports mentality for all our workers. That being said we have collected the best quotes from legends of the sports world that will push and motivate you to be the very best.

“I am not a perfectionist, but I like to feel that things are done well. More important than that, I feel an endless need to learn, to improve, to evolve, not only to please the coach and the fans, but also to feel satisfied with myself.
