“ To consider losing as not an option will not make you never lose but you will definitely end up winning much more often.”

“They say if life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But sometimes life gives you much worse. In that case, if life gives you rotten grapes, make wine!”

“If humiliation forces you to prove your worth, it’s the best thing that could have ever happened to you.”

“Never let your limitations put a limit on your dreams.”

“Life presents obstacles to you to test how badly you really want your dreams to be achieved. If you want them bad enough, you will achieve them, sooner or later. However, If you don’t want something bad enough, and just keep believing that good things will come to you if you wait, then you are fooling yourself. Good things don’t come to those who simply wait, they come to those who keep intensifying their desire and efforts towards the goal while the world thinks they are waiting.”

“Sometimes in life, not everything goes the way you wanted. You may go through setbacks or personal tragedies that may radically alter your life and make your goals appear like a distant dream. Life may beat you into a pulp and others may think it’s all over for you. But if you have the mentality of a winner, nothing will hold you down. No matter how tough it gets, you shall rise, fight back and inspire everyone around you to face their own lives with renewed vigor.”

“Whenever you attempt anything big, most of the times nothing will seem to work out . That’s a part of life’s plan to persuade you into giving up. There are millions who want exactly what you want. How does nature pick who deserves it? It does so by making you pay the price. The price to pay is working through years of obscurity and hardship even when you don’t see the fruit of your labour. It is the willingness to stake your entire life on that thing you want the most. When nature is finally convinced that nobody deserves it more than you do, you shall have it.”

“No matter what your problems are, you will always have two choices. You can either roll over and die or muster up the strength to get up and keep moving, no matter how hard it is to move. So what are you going to do? Are you going to let life beat you into a pulp or are you going to fight back and become an inspiration to all around you.”

“A life without obstacles is like a boxing match without an opponent. It makes no sense. The obstacles are there so that you actually have a meaningful challenge that makes your life worth living. You may exit as a winner or you may not, but if you have the courage to face those obstacles, you will surely exit as a fighter. Those who are afraid of the fight have no business standing in the ring.”

“Our greatest obstacles are not what the world throws at us. Our greatest obstacles are our own self doubts.”

“Whenever you go after a dream, you will always reach a point when you will be extremely frustrated and just feel like quitting. At that time, ask yourself a question. What is harder for you to face? The struggle or the regret of giving up? If the answer is the former, quit. You just don’t want it bad enough. If the answer is the latter, don’t worry, for it’s just a matter of time before you get what you deserve.”
