Hey you,

20 BIG QUOTES To Live By

Welcome Warriors!

Today marks a BIG day for us. Today you have a NEW opportunity. Today you have a NEW obstacle to get through. Today you have a BIG idea.....Today you can change your life..

This opportunity is also an obstacle. This obstacle is also a big idea. This big idea is a CHANCE to change your life.

It really is rather simple, you are faced with a choice. To do the right thing, or to not. 

You want to be healthier? what do you choose; whole foods or fast foods.

You want to get stronger? what do you choose: Hitting the gym or hitting the couch.

You want to get a pay raise? what do you choose:  Meet with your boss or meet with your coworkers and complain about how you don't get paid enough.

You want to be HAPPY? What do you choose: to complain about lifes circumstance, or rejoice in lifes beauty?

You see, we could hide behind our conditions, the circumstances we face. We can blame everyone and everything other than ourselves....but that is a choice.

Today, you have the biggest opportunity of your life. You have the opportunity to make the right choice. 

You have the choice to change.....it is tough, and most likely the toughest thing you will ever have to do.

What we want is often harder to attain because we always want what we don't have. It takes work to get what we don't have.

It takes making the right choices.

Today I have 20 BIG QUOTES that have influenced me over the years and have really CHANGED the way I view the world, and I know if you implement just ONE, you will be on the path to happiness and health.

I've always been  huge fan of quotes, but I want to advise you that the BEST way to understand a quote, is to read a book. quotes are great, but the book is what divulges the idea.

What are some of your favorite quotes? I would love to hear them!

Have a GREAT day warriors and keep fighting the good fight!

Never hesitate to reach out to me for anything,

I always have time...

Yours in strength,

Coach Mikey
