“I can’t lose if I don’t quit.”

“Decide who and what you want to be. Create a system for achieving that. This system should consist of a multitude of standards.”

“Reverse engineer your life and then execute and take massive action backed by mental toughness.”

“Always do what needs to be done, no matter what whether you want to do it or not. Then what happens is you create mental toughness and it becomes a mental toughness loop.”

“The person you can count on when it all hits the fan and it works for your business and your family and your friend group and everything else. We all know who that person is. We all know who we can count on. Be that person.”

“Choose hard, choose uncomfortable. Everything you want is on the other side of comfortable.”
