25. There is power in what you say

When I say something is going to happen, it will happen.

24. Always be optimistic that things will eventually work out

Nothing good ever comes from worrying or sitting there feeling sorry for yourself. Keep positive and keep pushing on and things will turn good.

23. Always believe in yourself

I believe in believing. My coach John Kavanagh is a big atheist, and he is always trying to persuade people to his way of thinking, and I think what a waste of energy. If people want to believe in this god, or that god, that is fine by me, believe away. But I think we can be our own gods. I believe in myself.

22. Always take accountability

People like to blame others. I think a person should look at their situation, look around them, find out what they wish to do, and seek and go and do that. And that is it.

I take inspiration from everyone and everything. I am inspired by current champions, former champions, true competitors, people dedicated to their dream, hard workers, dreamers, believers, and achievers.

I always put myself out there. I am not afraid of committing to something.

18. Always strive to be yourself

I am just trying to be myself. I am not trying to be anyone else.

17. You could be anyone if you put in the time and effort

There is no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist; we are all equal as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that's that. I am not talented. I am obsessed.

16. Every cloud has a silver lining

The more you seek the uncomfortable, the more you will become comfortable.

15. Everything that is meant for you will always find its way to you

If you deserve it, get it.

The thing about the truth is that only a few people can handle it.

At the end of the day, you have to feel some way. So why not feel unbeatable? Why not feel untouchable?

Failure is not an option for me. Success is all I envision.

All that matters is how you see yourself.
