powerlifting quotes

‘You’re gonna be happy,’ said life, 'but first I’ll make you strong’.
—  Chavela Vargas
If this SCARES you then you are a pussy, plain and simple. This is strength training - we are lifting weights. This isn’t something that will kill you. If this takes you out of your comfort zone then get ready because life is going to plant your ass really hard and you won’t know what to do.
—  Dave Tate
Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. Ask not for lighter burdens but for broader shoulders.
We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.
—  Ryan O’Connell, You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody
Your mood can affect your level of motivation, but never let it affect your discipline. Successful people know what they need to do and do it, regardless of how they feel. Don’t miss out on possible opportunities just because you have chosen to be overpowered by temporary feelings.
