"My coach says sprint for 1 minute, I dont stop for an extra 30 seconds. Within that 30 seconds a lot happens. My brain is screaming, "Stop! Stop! He said 1 minute you're finished!" My legs are screaming "Help!" Even my lungs seem to have packed up and left. But for that 30 seconds your mind is reaching a new level of toughness. And the human mind is something we dont train so often but it's what separates the champions from fighters." -Herculeez Fadipe

"Be the hero of your own movie. If your life was a movie and it started now. Forget about whatever financial disasters you've had, personal failures, relationship failures. What would the hero of your life's movie do right now? Do that, do those things. We define ourselves far too often by our past failures. We look at our past and we say, "Well that's me". That's not you, you are this person right now. You're this person right now, you're the person who's learned from those failures and you can choose to be the hero of your own movie right now. Write down your goals, write down things you want to improve, write down things you won't tolerate from yourself, write down things that you've done in the past that you never want to see yourself do again. And go forth, from here, as the hero of your own movie. Build momentum. Build confidence and momentum with each good decision that you make from here on out. You can do it, anyone can do it. We live in unique times. We live in one of the rarest times in human history where you can choose almost all the input that comes your way, whether it's the movie that you watch, the books you read, the podcasts you listen to. You can choose to be inspired. Do that. Do that and be the hero of your own movie." -Joe Rogan

"Celebrate your victories the first night then be your worst critic the next, because in the end, you always have room for improvement." -Anne Malinoff


"This sport has greatly taught me about respect towards others. It is in my heart; its values and learning in everything I do. It will be part of my life forever even when I can't fight anymore." -Saiful Merican

"With hard work comes success and the patience to grow." -Matteus Lähdesmäki
