“No matter how passionate you are about something, there shall be days when you just won’t feel like getting up and doing it. What separates the champion from the amateur is the ability to muster up the strength to do things when not even an ounce of their body feels like doing it.”

“Consistently push beyond what’s comfortable or accept mediocrity and forget about being a champion.”

“Champions are not made in front of millions of cheering crowds. Champions are made far away from the limelight, during the gruelling hours of practice and preparation where nobody is cheering you on, except your own will to win.”

“Everyone loves to dream, some follow it up through action, a few have enough self belief to keep going through setbacks. But it’s only a handful who have the discipline to keep toiling away in monotony and obscurity for years to eventually become deserving enough of the spotlight. They were the ones willing to pay the price. And the price wasn’t money. It was blood, sweat and tears”

“To achieve everything that others don’t, you have to be willing to go through everything that others won’t.”

“I do not know what produces excellence. But I do know that it usually correlates with the intensity of your preparation.”

“Sports is one of the toughest fields there is. Athletes lead intensely disciplined lives for years, but when it comes to the competition, success does not depend totally on preparation

but also on chance. Those who win are lauded as heroes. Those who don’t, go back to training again for several years hoping their efforts pay off next time. Yet, in any other field, you have your whole life ahead of you to keep on trying. In sports, the window of opportunity is much smaller. If you make it at the right age, you receive adulation. If you don’t you are forgotten and none of your efforts are recognized. Let us salute these individuals, they lead one of the toughest lives we can imagine.”

“To achieve everything you want tomorrow, you have to give up something that you want today.”


“Think highly about yourself but never low about others. The first signifies confidence, the second stupidity. There is always someone better”.

“A confident fool has greater chances of success than a genius who constantly needs reassurance from others.”

“As children we thought everything was possible, that is until the world taught us all that is not possible.”

“You are as significant or significant to the world you believe you are to yourself”

“The only lucky charm you need in life is self confidence.”

“Confidence is a great thing but sometimes the lack of it is an even better thing. The fear propels us to pursue excellence and not settle for anything less.”

“The difference between confidence and arrogance is not how you look at others but how you look at yourself. A confident person is aware of his self worth and that reflects in his treatment of others. An arrogant one is insecure about himself and that’s why he can only validate his own importance by demeaning others.”

“We have always been taught that one should be modest. Well, modesty is good, but too much modesty isn’t. Do not be afraid to talk about your achievements. If you don’t talk about your talent and accomplishments, nobody else is going to do it for you. Just remember, the talk has to be backed up with action as well. Talk without action and people will eventually stop taking you seriously. Act without talk and you will die unknown. Talking backed up with greater action shall earn you what you deserve”.
