I refuse to believe today will be just another day in my life.
All that I am.
All that I will become will be written through my thoughts and my actions.
I’ve conditioned my mind.
Trained my body.
Sacrificed my soul.
There will be obstacles.
But nothing comes to those who wait.
Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.
Bodybuilding is an art, your body is the canvas, weights are your brush and nutrition is your paint. We all have the ability to turn a self portrait into a masterpiece.
They can crack jokes. They can sit back and analyze and criticize and make all the fun they want. But I’m living my life, I’m doing it. What are you doing?
Nothing comes easy, but as long as you’re breathing, you’re always one breath away from making your dreams a reality. Make every breath count.
If a man doesn’t have a dream, then he has nothing to work for. Nothing to get up in the morning. No reason, no purpose, to be
The person with the biggest dreams is more powerful than the person with all the answers.
The mind is everything. If you don’t believe you can do something then you can’t. If you believe that your upbringing was substandard and therefore you have to walk around as a refugee from that crisis situation for the rest of your life, forever bearing the burden of that experience then that will be YOUR life.
If you don’t have a dream, then you have nothing to work for, nothing to get up in the morning for, no reason.. and no purpose to be. But friends we do have a dream and dreams do come true not because we keep believing but we keep working hard
You have to think it before you can do it. The mind is what makes it all possible
Champions are an example of what happens when you decide to leave the plane of average thinking, where you dare to dream and you dare to go after that dream, and you make these thoughts and ideas become more than something than just a dream. They actually become a vision.
I never gave up, even when people told me I’d never make it; Never underestimate the heart of a champion.
The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.
It’s therapy. It’s just something to do so you’re not lost in your own not-so-nice thoughts, and it’s an opportunity to think about something a lot nicer and to do something that’s with more purpose. So you do it, and you take your passion and you put a lot into it, and at some point you get recognized for it. But that recognition doesn’t mean the man is without his own demons or without his own struggles.
Your dreams are always going to be the most important to you than they will be to anybody else. So keep dreaming, keep believing, keep pressing forward. So all those warriors out there – be encouraged
Do not let yourself be contaminated by others’ ideas of what is best for you. Cast aside the shackles of destructive thinking.
If I have to die tonight,if this weight is going to kill me tonight,so be it! I am dying where I wanna be
I’m not content. What I’ve accomplished already was good, and it was needed at the time in order for me to move on, but I’m so hungry I can’t even tell you what was, I’m concentrating on what is to be. Once I knock that down, I’ll go on to the next accomplishment until I can finally say, “that was the greatest.” I can only say what it is when I’m done; and I’m not done, I have a lot of work to do.
It’s like you have to save your own life, nobody is going to be your savior for you, so we have to do what we have to do, no matter what it is
The weight is just a tool. Do you focus on the hammer or the nail? You better focus on the thing you’re trying to hit.
I am a believer, I am believer that we shape and create the life that we choose, and I believe that the tool that we have to do that, is our mind.
The achievement of great things though comes from the ability to manage yourselfvery, very, very well. Or at least well enough where you almost become compulsive about getting certain things done. You have to set a standard for yourself that’s.very, very, very high and you have to manage your thoughts to where they need to be allow yourself to be successful, at what your trying to do.
If you don’t believe you can do something then you can’t.
What am I doing with my life am I living it or am I just going to some hum drum job that I don’t really wanna be at doing some miniscule task being paid to be a mindless drone or am I living my life on my terms – the way I want to live doing thing that I want to do – make no mistake as hard as this is- this is what I want to do! Some people can make fun of it, they can crack jokes they can analyze and criticize and make all the fun they want but I’m living my life. I’m doing it! What are you?
You come to a point in your life and you may be in bed just thinking about it. Ask yourself what is stopping you from becoming your dreams
In the mind of every artist there is a masterpiece
