  • Let me tell you something you already know.

  • The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.

  • It's a very mean and nasty place

  • and I don't care how tough you are

  • it will beat you to your knees and keep

  • you there permanently if you let it.

  • Life is tough, that's a given.

  • When you stand up, you're gonna be shoved back down.

  • When you're down, you're gonna be stepped on.

  • My advice to you doesn't come with a lot of bells and whistles.

  • It's no secret, you'll fall down, you stumble,

  • you get pushed, you land square on your face.

  • Life is scary. Get used to it.

  • There are no magical fixes,

  • it's all up to you.

  • You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.

  • But it ain't about how hard you're hit.

  • It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward

  • How much you can take and keep moving forward

  • That's how winning is done!

  • A lot of people in this world, search endlessly

  • for some complex, magical formula to understand

  • why some people are successful

  • and why others are not.

  • Greatness, is not this wonderful, esoteric, illusive,

  • god-like feature that only the special among us will ever taste.

  • It's something that truly exists, in, all of us!

  • The heaviness of being successful,

  • was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again.

  • I'm convinced the only thing that kept me going,

  • was that I loved what I did.

  • You've got to find what you love.

  • There's a certain delusional quality,

  • that all successful people have to have.

  • When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe,

  • then you'll be successful.

  • The only thing you care about when you trying to breathe is to get some fresh air.That's it!

  • And when you get to the point where all you wanna do is be is successful

  • as bad as you wanna breathe then you will be successful.

  • but what is most important is don't be afraid to fail

  • you can't always win but don't be afraid of making decisions

  • You might never fail on the scale I did,

  • but some failure in life is inevitable.

  • It is impossible to live without failing at something,

  • unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all

  • in which case you have failed by default.

  • When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like:

  • 'If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.'

  • It made an impression on me,

  • and since then, for the past 33 years,

  • I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself:

  • "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?"

  • Because Almost everything

  • all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure

  • these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

  • Remembering that you are Going To Die

  • is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking

  • you have something to lose.

  • distinctly different about me is

  • I'm not afraid to die on a treadmill.

  • You might have more talent than me,

  • you might be smarter than me,

  • But if we get on the treadmill

  • there's two things:

  • You're getting off first,

  • or I'm Going To Die!

  • It's really that simple.

  • i'm gonna give him two minutes and i'll finish him.

  • then i promise he won't make it 2 to 3 minutes

  • in the kickboxing ring with me this time.

  • Its like you have to save your own life

  • nobody's going to be able to save it for you.

  • So we have to do what we have to do,

  • no matter what it is!

  • this is what i believe

  • and i willing to die for it

  • Period!

  • No matter how bad it is...or how bad it gets

  • I'm going to make it!

  • say that to yourself everyday.

  • our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate

  • Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

  • i'm motivated by fear.

  • What we are trying to do, during all these discussions and talks here,

  • is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind.

  • not accept things as they are.

  • But to understand it, go into it, examine it,

  • give your heart and your mind, with everything that you have, to find out

  • a way of living differently.

  • That depends on you, and not on someone else,

  • because in this there is no teacher, no pupil

  • there is no leader; there is no guru; there is no Master, no Saviour.

  • You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the Master; you are the guru; you are the leader,

  • you are everything!

  • And to understand is to transform what is.

  • You know, when you get old, in life

  • things get taken from you.

  • I mean, that's... that's... that's a part of life.

  • But, you only learn that when you start losin' stuff.

  • You find out life's this game of inches.

  • On this team we fight for that inch.

  • On this team we tear ourselves and everyone else around us

  • to pieces for that inch.

  • We claw with our fingernails for that inch.

  • Because we know when add up all those inches,

  • that's gonna make the fucking difference between winning and losing!

  • Between living and dying!

  • I'll tell you this, in any fight

  • it's the guy whose willing to die whose gonna win that inch.

  • Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth.

  • But ya gotta be willing to take the hits,

  • and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be

  • because of him, or her, or anybody!

  • Cowards do that and that ain't you! You're better than that!

  • And I know, if I'm gonna have any life anymore

  • it's because I'm still willing to fight and die for that inch

  • because that's what living is!

  • the six inches in front of your face.

  • We get one opportunity in life. One chance in life

  • to do whatever you're gonna do.

  • To lay your foundation. To make whatever mark you're gonna make.

  • whatever legacy you're gonna leave. Leave your legacy.

  • And it's found through effort.

  • Wins and losses come a dime a dozen.

  • But effort? Nobody can judge effort.

  • Because Effort is between you and you. Effort aint got nothing to do with nobody else.

  • So that team that think they ready to seen you?

  • They think what they seen on film.

  • They ain't saw what film shows.

  • Because every day is a new day.

  • Every moment is a new moment.

  • So now you got to go out and show them that you a different creature

  • Now!

  • now than I was five minutes ago.

  • Cause I'm pissed off for greatness.
