“No matter who you are, you’re going to face people who refuse to see you get what you want in your life. Who don’t want you to find love. Who will spite you if you make money. Who will call you arrogant if you take great care of your body and sculpt your muscles. However, don’t let them fool you, they don’t actually hate you. Doubt and fear is crushing down on their chests, suffocating their souls. Their barks of hatred are actually blood-curdling cries of envy, the result of self-disappointment.”

“Want to be taken more seriously? Achieve greater results.”

“People often underestimate the power of small habits done consistently. If you want to live a life of abundance, success, happiness, and well-being, then start with the small things.
