Don’t miss this exclusive interview with a world-famous boxer.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Being a dedicated boxer has led to many amazing opportunities, such as winning medals and championships. The medals, trophies and belts which are on display in a trophy room are a reminder of all the hard work it took to get to that stage. It is a reminder that all the grueling training programmes paid off and the rewards were reaped. The best advice for life is to stay focused, keep working hard and never give up. It is important for people to have dreams and goals that they wish to achieve in life. If you have goals and ambitions, chase them, they allow you to wake up in the morning with purpose and determination. Think where you would like to be in ten years’ time and use goals to drive you. Don’t allow hate comments on social media to get to you, do not rise to their words and waste your energy on them. If you have a large social media following you are bound to have haters.  When you are successful in life, the haters are always going to be there. The love received from social media from fans destroys all the hate. Money is the motivator for everyone in life. You use it as motivation because you want your family and those around you to live a good life. Some people are not honest about money being their motivator but it comes down to the question, would you work for free? There is no shame in being money motivated, you don’t have to be motivated by money only for yourself, but to provide those you love with the means to live a good life. Appreciate every penny you earn. There are many people out there in the world who don’t have much money and who struggle to get by each day. Spending large quantities of money on material items such as watches makes you think ‘what could that money do for these people?’ You start to think that that money could be spent on better things, such as food for the poor. Rather than buying expensive items like jewellery, it is better spent on charity.   BEST MOMENTS “I was 16 when I won gold at the Junior Olympics, I won the gold medal, and the best boxer award” “The day you stop getting haters is the day you think to yourself, have I still got it?” “It is nice when people know you, and they treat you a little bit more special” “ Never let people get to you. Just say thank you very much and just let it be.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES   ABOUT THE GUEST Amir Khan is a British professional boxer, promoter and philanthropist.
