On Strength | Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
On Being Different | What is the point of being on this Earth if you are going to be like everyone else?
On Money | Money doesn’t make you happy. I now have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million.
On Failure | Just like in bodybuilding, failure is also a necessary experience for growth in our own lives, for if we’re never tested to our limits, how will we know how strong we really are? How will we ever grow?
On Jealousy | Everybody pities the weak; jealousy you have to earn.
People I Surround Myself With | Positive thinking can be contagious. Being surrounded by winners helps you develop into a winner.
On Achieving Success | Be hungry for success, hungry to make your mark, hungry to be seen and to be heard and to have an effect. And as you move up and become successful, make sure also to be hungry for helping others.
On Diligence | Diligence is the mother of good luck.
