I’m sure that you, like most average people, are constantly wondering how genius manifests itself.
What is that spark that inspires a person’s indefatigable drive to truly go out and change the world? What took Steve Jobs to the top of tech world or brought Jeff Bezos to change commerce forever? Where do their ideas come from? How did they make it happen?
George Foreman has the answer you’ve been looking for. The man who revolutionized the concept of low-fat, two-sided, indoor, machine-based, lean, mean grilling with his patented George Foreman Lean, Mean Grilling Machine opened up yesterday about what inspired him to invent the George Foreman Lean, Mean Grilling Machine.
It came after someone called him out for getting knocked out by Muhammad Ali long ago.

While I was KOd, I saw a giant piece of meat screaming Grill me; when I woke I said “gotta find a Grill”. Thus the George Foreman grill https://t.co/dfm5TuMO0i

Well… dang. All it takes to change the world is getting socked in the face by the greatest boxer of all time and having hallucinations about meat. Twitter was sure inspired.
This is literally one of the most inspirational things I've ever read

If you asked me “how do you think George Foreman decided to start making grills?” I’d probably have said he saw a piece of meat taunt him.

Now that you have the answer, go out there and create the world you want!
