Success is a decision, not a gift.
Athletes who are able to stay completely focused in pursuit of their dreams are the ones that are most likely to become champions.
Like everything in life, it is not what happens to you but how you respond to it that counts.
It is never about who is right or wrong, it is about what is best.
You can start to change your luck today. Begin believing that you can have what you desire and superior things will arrive.
The thrust of continuous action is the firewood which fuels motivation.
Too often, people get stuck in a state of over-thinking, the result is that they never reach a decision.
Compete like you cannot fail.
The first step is the most important. It is the most crucial and the most effective as it will initiate the direction you have chosen.
Act like a champion, and then become one.
If you want to continue to be the best in the world, then you have to train and compete like you are second best in the world.
If you remain static and wait for success to come to you it will certainly not happen.
Nothing could be any worse than having to turn to your friends, your colleagues and your loved ones and say –‘I gave up too soon’.
Success is simply never giving in to failure - either in mind or body.
It is true to say that the secret of a winning formula is the ability to accept that there is a vast area of unexploited potential beyond what you currently perceive to be your maximum.
The only test is what you see when you look in a mirror.
If you are able to focus unswervingly on your goals, then all that you desire will become yours.
The sprint is like life ... blink and you miss it.
You have to create your self-belief by going to your core to find the probable reasons for the negativity in you, and then demolish them.
