    We all need a little inspiration here and there whether it's for life in general, training, or when you've come to realize that your balls have been replaced by a big gaping emotional vagina. Here are just some random quotes and videos I like. Some I find inspirational, others are shit that just gets me pumped to go run or train.

    Share what you do/like/watch whether it's a video, quote, picture of a hot girl/dude, whatever...

    Back at this one particularly rough wrestling camp they made us tape on the ceiling above our beds a quote that said, "Train while your opponent is sleeping." That's a little too cheesy for me, but before a fight I tape the event poster on my bathroom mirror so I'm constantly reminded of it. Really helps on those rough mornings or late nights.

    When I'm on runs by myself it's kind of hard to not just stop and walk when I run out of breath or get bored. I swear I can hear all my coaches screaming at me though when I start to slow. I just picture they're right along side me. Sounds kind of gay, but it works.

    A poem JFK carried in his pocket
    Bullfight critics, ranked in rows,
    Crowd the enormous plaza full.
    But only one is there who knows,
    And he's the man that fights the bull.


    If you're going through hell, keep going- Winston Churchill


    You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore- Christopher Columbus


    Video Hillary posted in another thread :wavey: (it's a good one)

    Manny Pacquiao just hitting the bag. Just downright ridiculous speed and power for his size. Proof that I'm too small is bullshit

    Contender Asia trailer lol. I'm just obsessed with the theme music. Works every time.

    Chechen might not like it, but ADCC highlight I like. Maybe it's just cause I really like last of the mohicans.

    JWP in his new DVD set. I always liked him because to this day I don't think he's that good. I think there are loads of other fighters technically better than him. But the dude wins because he's scrappy as hell and never stops. He knows what he wants and the fact that he doesn't have all the natural gifts doesn't stop him.

    I actually find Kyle Maynard pretty damn inspirational (despite what I think about his involvement in MMA). Sometimes I think, man, that motherfucker has no arms or legs and he's out working me. That gets me pretty fired up.

    I have no problem being motivated to train, I love it. Id go all day every day if I could. Its the daily shit that I cant make myself do. Laundry, dishes, getting up for work. :hs:

    Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.

    i put up a pic of my dad....

    mostly because i do as much to make him proud of me and he gives me only a little bit of respect/encouragement which then fires me up more. last semester i got a 3.6 GPA for college (highest GPA i ever had, as well as highest any of his sons had) and all he said was "Alright....keep it up"

    that and i put sayings like "You're going to fail" and stuff as a bit of reverse psychology to keep me working....it helps oddly.

    recently though i haven't done anything because i'm still sulking in pity and regret over this whole ex-gf issue. i feel like everything was my fault...so i just sorta dont give a damn

    My dad is a lot of my inspiration. He came from extreme poverty, worked his ass off to actually make it to college despite a ton of debt. Got ripped from college two years in when life was making sense and had to go to war against his will. Came back, an amazing athlete, and eventually after busting his ass got a doctorate in pharmacy.

    I'm his pride and joy. He can't stand me being away at college. If I don't come home for 4-5 days, he's up here to have dinner with me. He can't watch me play all my high school sports anymore so he sends my competition videos to everyone he knows and brags his ass off.

    I told him I would spend all of May in Miami/LA preparing for Abu Dhabi, would come home for a week, then spend 2 months in Brazil. A place he could never find me if something happened, too far away for him to see me for a long time.

    He FLIPPED. Screamed, yelled, said no, said that I was always trying to kill myself. I told him it was my money, and he told me to get out of the house.

    The next day he sent me an email.

    "I'm scared, but I love you and good luck."

    Then it had this quote at the bottom: "The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live."

    Plus, I want to be as ripped/in shape as him at 62.
