When I started ONE Championship 8.5 years ago, I could never have imagined this extraordinary adventure in a million years. In the early days, all of the haters, doubters, and naysayers told me that I was crazy, stupid, or foolish. My team and I faced thousands of rejections after rejections, and failures after failures in the first 3 years. No one would give us a break. Today, ONE Championship is Asia’s largest global sports media property with a broadcast to over 150+ countries around the world. It has broken all records as the world’s fastest growing global sports media property in history – full stop.
I don’t own fancy cars or expensive clothes or nice watches. The only thing I have is a burning desire to do something worthwhile with my life. I wake up every morning with love in my heart and fire in my belly. Luck plays a big part in life, and I know that I have received many blessings throughout my life. I work because it is an expression of my soul. Our mission is to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. I pour my everything into every day because I want to make a positive impact on billions of lives, and change the world for the better. I want to inspire the world to dream more, do more, and be more in life. Mark my words. My team and I are just getting started.
Chase your greatness. Live your dreams. #WeAreONE
