The Daily Post | Sting

The G.O.A.T, Muhammad Ali, coined the phrase “float like a butterfly sting like a bee, the hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see” when he described his boxing style in 1964. Still known as Cassius Clay Jr., the underdog was matched against the then world heavy weight champion Sonny Liston where Clay won by a technical knock out. A year later, coming back as Muhammad Ali, he earned his place in boxing history as the greatest of all time becoming a role model for anyone with a passion and desire for success.

As an English major and aspiring novelist, I can appreciate Muhammad’s witty cleverness, also, in any ring one would always hope to be as agile and light as a butterfly while still having the penetrating zap of a bee. As a newbie publishing articles on a blog with barely any readers it can become quite easy to lose motivation, however in any endeavour it is always important to define one’s purpose. Initially, myย Hello Mira Belleย blog was created to form a portfolio and develop my article writing style for contemporary readers, yet I constantly find myself itching for followers and more readers. After a month of publishing, the support and advice from friends and family have done quite well to keep me going. Just like an agile butterfly, one’s success isn’t instantaneous, it has to crawl and spend time developing before it can crack out of it’s cacoon. Maybe this blog is my cacoon?

Whether success is achieved by a technicality or determination of skill, fighting to the finish remains constant. I’m almost certain Muhammad Ali barely took any days off in pursuit of his greatness. And while I hate admitting that I’ve come close to giving up, why not make an article about it right? Just another daily post in my cocoon, determined to write my sting!
