No.10 - Muhammad Ali

If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it—then I can achieve it. – Muhammad Ali is famous for his motto of If I think I can do it, then I can do it. In other words, if you have a plan and set your mind to executing that plan, you will achieve what you want no matter how big or small that goal is. This quote is not just relevant for achieving things at work; it also applies very well in terms of health and fitness. If you are dedicated enough and willing to put in all of your effort towards something like weight loss or exercise, then there’s nothing stopping you from achieving those goals!

No.9 - David Beckham

The famed soccer star makes no secret of his love for baths, having mentioned in multiple interviews that it’s his favorite way to unwind. While he typically has a nighttime bath before bed, sometimes he finds himself needing one in an emergency. I was in Madrid at night and I had forgotten my phone charger, Beckham told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show. I needed my phone because I wanted to know what time it was, so I went into a hotel and asked if they could let me use their bathroom and when I got out of there all of my team were outside waiting for me. The group had called his room thinking he might have fallen asleep but then started worrying when there was no answer.

No.8 - Roger Federer

Last year I experienced my worst moment ever as a tennis player when I had to call an end to my season in New York due to knee pain. Since then, it has been an extremely long road back.

No.7 - Greg Louganis

Olympic Diver and HIV Advocate Greg Louganis, Olympic gold medalist diver, is often asked about his experience being one of only two male athletes at either Olympic or Paralympic Games in over 50 years to ever earn medals on both springboard and platform. What he’s less frequently asked about is his longtime advocacy work for HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention and treatment. Over 10 years ago Louganis took an HIV test after noticing a mole on his back that hadn’t been there before; it was later confirmed that he was HIV positive. In his new book, Breaking The Surface: A Memoir , Louganis discusses how sports helped him deal with stress from having been sexually abused as a child.

No.6 - Wayne Gretzky

Most of the best games I've played on four hours of sleep. The key is hydration - it helps you get a good night's sleep. And in your preparation, when you're thinking about how you want to play that night, about what you want to accomplish, give yourself a real honest evaluation at home before you go in.

No.5 - Michael Jordan

This man is truly great, though not much of an example for entrepreneurs, I would like you all to read his biography. You may be familiar with some parts of it because of ESPN reporting on it in numerous articles. He is simply one of if not my favorite athlete of all time.

No.4 - Mia Hamm

Reach high, aim low. Stretch yourself beyond what you believe you are capable of. This can be both physically and mentally exhausting - but once you get over that feeling of exhaustion, your sense of accomplishment will renew your energy. Also remember to pace yourself throughout long days so that you don't wear out before it is time for bed.

No.3 - Jesse Owens

The Man Who Took Down Hitler : Did you know that Jesse Owens broke 4 world records and was an important figure in helping America win World War II? The year was 1936. The place: Berlin, Germany. Hitler believed that Aryans were superior athletes and German athletes would dominate every event of the 1936 Olympics. At his personal command, Hitler ordered his Aryan supporters to boycott African-American Olympic athlete Jesse Owens.

No.2 - Serena Williams

The tennis champ struggles with insomnia, so instead of over-thinking things before bed, she reads or does something relaxing (like baking!). She told Glamour that she sometimes asks herself these two questions to help her get ready for slumber: What did I do well today? What can I improve tomorrow?

No.1 - Billie Jean King

In Billie Jean King’s career, she has played and beat some of the greatest players in tennis, including Chris Evert. She was able to take out some of her competition because she had knowledge on how to serve more effectively than her competitors. If you have trouble sleeping at night, one of King’s tips is go for a jog before hitting your bed. This will help your heart rate slow down at an easier pace than if you were jumping into bed right after an hour long jog.
