What Are Your Favorite Quotes?

By August 25, 2009 105 Comments

I love quotes!  I like to have many quotes that I have in my head when I need some inspiration to not skip a workout, or say no to seconds at the dinner table, or to succeed when I feel all the odds are stacked against me.

My goal of this post is to create a huge list of quotes that are related to success, health, exercise, nutrition, mindset, energy… whatever you can think of.  Please share as many as you would like.

Contest!  I will give a free 20 minute phone coaching session to the person who comes up with the quote that I think is the best that I haven’t heard before, or haven’t heard many times before.  This has a value of $50!
