Question of the day: If you could write one phrase, quote, or saying on the wall of your gym, garage, or carport that could always inspire you to go faster, harder, or pick the bar back up, what would it be?

      Oh yeah…one of my favorites.

      The knock-knock joke. For those that haven’t heard it.

      -who’s there?
      Second place.
      -Second place, who???

    “I was never afraid of failure, for I would sooner fail than not be among the best.”

    “On the day of victory, no one is tired.”

    I know it is long and can’t go on a wall or anything…but it is still my fav:

    β€œAt the peak of tremendous and victorious effort, while the blood is pounding in your head, all suddenly becomes quiet within you. Everything seems clearer and whiter than ever before, as if great spotlights had been turned on. At that moment, you have the conviction that you contain all the power in the world, that you are capable of everything, that you have wings. There is no more precious moment in life than this, the white moment, and you will work very hard for years just to taste it again.” — Yuri Vlasov

    Isaiah 40:28-31

    28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
    The LORD is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
    He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.

    29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.

    30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;

    31 but those who hope in the LORD
    will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

    Very long, but just the verse Isaiah 40:28-31 written down would get the message across to me.

    The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.
    — Vince Lombardi

    The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will! – Vince Lombardi

    No one ever drowned from their own sweat- Lou Holtz
    Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character- Albert Einstein

    “That which does not kill me makes me stronger”-Friedrich Nietzsche

    “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it will last forever.” Lance Armstrong

    I have a bunch… sorry; it’s too hard to choose one!

    Wanted to do this work out today but I’m resting up for Amazing Grace tomorrow πŸ™‚ !!!

    • Brian says:

      So you quote Lombardi and Holtz and leave out Bear Bryant – I had this poster on my wall throughout my childhood, and still have it rolled up on my desk at home.

      If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.

    Proverbs 13:4-Lazy people want much, but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.

    Psalms 18:32-It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.

    Isaiah 41:10- So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    James 1:2-4-Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

    We should never shy away from the challenges that face us out of fear of failure or an unwillingness to battle the odds. We should confront our problems head on and make no excuses. ~Kyle Maynard

    Great quotes from everyone.
    I’m with Kevin and Pre’s quote. Such a gut check quote for me, especially when I’m feeling sorry for myself and looking for excuses to have an “easy” day.

    1 Corinthians 9:25-27 (New International Version)
    25Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

    Scars, miles and memories
    All I feel is freedom

  13. Slade White says:

    Need we forget the late Patrick Swayze in Road House???

    “Pain don’t hurt.”

  14. Slade White says:

    Or an even more obscure one. 3 O’clock High, Buddy Revell:

    “You know what? You are the biggest p*$$y I ever met in my life. You didn’t even try–how does that feel?”

  15. Garrett D says:

    “Pain is weakness leaving the body”
    apparently this was an old Marine recruiting slogan…

  16. Karen says:

    “Pain of discipline or pain of regret…your choice.”

    – some credit Jim Rohn, some say Nick Saban. Either way, it is on my refrigerator as a daily reminder of the power of choice in the outcome of the path.

    • Kerri says:

      This is the one of his I like…I guess maybe it’s his quote, just shortened….=o)

      β€œWe must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.”
      ~Jim Rohn

  17. brad says:

    I havent posted in a while but I figured I would leave yall with the motivating words of my former SSGT who was a marine sniper. ” Why dont you go to the store and buy you a combat straw and suck it the F*#K UP”

    β€œScar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.” – Henry Rollins

  19. AmandaJ says:

    How ’bout this for inspiration: (In the words of an amazing ballet instructor, also imagine your butt being poked) “Jelly!”

  20. Aaron says:

    I almost forgot about this one. I used to have rubber wristband like the Livestrong and colored CFHSV ones, except it was black and said “HARDIN THE F#@K UP”

    It was incredible motivation when going deep into the pain cave.
