Don’t waste another moment of life where you are not at  your fullest potential getting the most out of the time you have in life.” – Greg Plitt

19. “Bet on yourself. If you bet on yourself you’ll never lose.” – Greg Plitt “Once you known where your current limits are, then you know how to destroy them, push them… grow them.” – Greg Plitt

20. “Belief, confidence in yourself. The world’s your playground. Limitless. My question is… will you be remembered?” – Greg Plitt

21. “It’s early in the morning and your competition is still sleeping.” – Greg Plitt

24. “If you guys are really wondering if you are burning out mentally. Take a day off and go to your local hospital. Go to the cancer wing. Look at 4-year-old, who won’t ever see their teenage years, probably won’t ever see their next birthday. Go and see someone who is mentally or physically retarded, or see when a soldier who just came back from war who doesn’t have legs anymore. Stare that guy down. Look him right in the eyes and tell them, as you stand there with 2 capable legs, that you burned out. That you don’t want to use them. See if that doesn’t kill him right there. Because he would do anything to have that opportunity.” – Greg Plitt

25. “The mind always fails first, not the body. The secret is to make your mind work for you, not against you.” – Greg Plitt

26. “The difference between a winner and a loser – they both failed, but the winner gets back up and does it again and again until it goes his way.” – Greg Plitt

27. “I failed” is 10 times the man than “what if” because “what if” never went to the arena. – Greg Plitt

28. “The clock is ticking, are you becoming the person you wanna be?” – Greg Plitt

29. “The road to success is a very lonely road. You’re not gonna see too many friends. It’s only you with your shadow. Once you get there, many people will love you, also many people will hate you. Because your success is a huge spotlight, shining on their failures.” – Greg Plitt

30. “Today it begins. Tomorrow it continues. And it never ends, until you reach your goal and cross the finish line.” – Greg Plitt

31. “One Hour of pain produces a lifetime of pride.” – Greg Plitt

32. “Why cry about missed opportunities when you have the ability to smile at opportunities lived? The past has created who you are NOW, where we learn and grow from the past, never resting upon previous achievements or allowing past failure to paralyze us in our current endeavor. All that was has created us to be the best we currently are for our greatest hour is about to arise!” – Greg Plitt
