Why Do I Succeed?.I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not. I will fight against the odds. I will sacrifice. I am not shackled by fear.,insecurity or doubt. I feel those emotions–drink them in and then swallow them away to the blackness of hell. I am motivated by accomplishment not pride.pride consumes the weak–kill their heart from within. If I fall I will get up. If I am beaten I will return. I will never stop getting better. I will never give up–ever.that is why I succeed…There’s a difference between interest and commitment.when you are interested in doing something,you do it only when it’s convenient.when you are committed to something,you accept no excuse,only results…All your life you are told the thing you cannot do,all your life they will say you are not good enough or strong enough or talented enough.they will say you are the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this.they will tell you no.a thousand times no.until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no.quite firmly and very quickly.And you will tell them yes…I am fan of Muhammad Ali, I am fan of Bruce lee. I am fan of Michael Jordan. I am fan of Kobe Bryant and I study these guys. I try to see what makes them. I realize that all these guys have a sickening work ethic.they have supreme confidence,and they are very mental.everything’s mental with them.
The real workout starts when you want to stop.
Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
Everything Is Possible
Everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it.
Can’t Put A Limit
“You can’t put a limit on anything.the more you dream,the farther you get.”
Defeat Is A State Of Mind
Defeat is a state of mind,no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.
As A Champion
I hated every minute of training,but i said:”Don’t quit ,suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”
I Am Closer Than Yesterday
I may not be there yet,but i’m closer than yesterday.
My attitude is that if you push me towards a weakness,i will turn that weakness into a strength.
The more i practice,The luckier i get.
Great players don’t train because they love training.They train because they love winning.
Set your goals high ,and don’t stop till you get there.
A baseball game is simply a nervous breakdown divided into nine innings.
It Ain’t Over
“Like they say,it ain’t over ’til the fat guy swings.”
You Are Not Disabled
“You are not disabled by the disabilities you have,you are able by the abilities you have.”
Be quick but never in hurry.
There will be a day when i can no longer do this.that day is not today.
“You can’t put a limit on anything.”
Take Pride In Yourself
Hockey’s a funny game.You have to prove yourself every shift,every game.It’s not up to anybody else.You have to take pride in yourself.”
You Can Achieve Anything
“In 1995 i had $7 bucks in my pocket and knew two things:I’m broke as hell and one day i won’t be.you can achieve anything.”
Punched In The Face
“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.”
“I just have this thing inside me that wants to eat and conquer.Maybe it’s egotistical,but i have it in me.I don’t want to be a tycoon.I just want to conquer people and their souls.”
I play to win,whether during practice or a real game,and i will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to win.
No Rest Is Worth
No rest is worth anything except the rest that is earned.
“There may be people that have more talent than you,but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you.”
Meaning Of Life
For me life is continuously being hungry.The meaning of life is not simply to exist,to survive,but to move ahead,to go up,to achieve,to conquer.
My Goal Is
I never tried to hide the fact that my only goal is to be the best.
Why I Succeed
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.I’ve lost almost 300 games.26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.I’ve failed over and over again in my life.And that is why i succeed.”
We don’t want to tell our dreams.we want to show them.
Don’t Give Up
Don’t give up just because of what someone said.Use that as motivation to push harder.
