Kenya's greatest marathoner of all time, Eliud Kipchoge says that money does not motivate him to do what he does.

Speaking at a breakfast event at the Impala Grounds where he was giving a motivational talk to Rugby players, Kipchoge advised that money can destroy someone. 

"Don't put money on your mind because you will crash. If I do that you will hear Eliud died on the superhighway," he said. 

Kipchoge said that having money as the central motivating factor will lead sportsmen to crash.

Asked what keeps him inspired and motivated, Kipchoge stated,

"I'm older than all of you here, even your manager. What keeps me going is the inspiration I get from all of you and everywhere I go. Who is the oldest footballer? Ronaldo is 37 and no one can do what he does."

He continued,

"I always train also I don't discuss matters of age or limitation. I'm more than that. I have the right systems that can help me progress."

Kipchoge, who set a world record by running a marathon in under two hours proved to the world that when you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

He coined the catchy phrase; No human is limited.

He said, "If you set a goal it can discourage you if you don't attain it. But if you stick to the right systems they help you move on and progress."
