Mark Wahlberg quotes: actor and all around hustler tells us about righting wrongs, work ethic, mindset, money, and more.

“There’s a storm inside of us.  I’ve heard many team guys speak of this.  A burning.  A river.  A drive.  An unrelenting drive to push yourself further than anyone could ever think possible.”

“You know you have two choices in life, basically, to succeed or to fail.”

“Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.”

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

“Having more success allows you more freedom to take more risks and do things.”

“I’ve always wanted to do right in life.  But the wanting and the doing aren’t quite the same thing.”

“It’s all about love and how we are all connected.”

“As soon as I ended up being incarcerated, I said, ‘You know, this is not the life for me.'”

“I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes.  You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn’t until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away.  So I don’t have a problem going to sleep at night.”

“I never lie.  I believe everything I say, so it’s not a lie.”

“It’s ridiculous that people call me a sex symbol.  I don’t feel like that at all.  My daughter would get a kick out of it – she’d find it very funny.  I’ll take it though.  I’m very humble.  But it’s certainly not the way I feel.”

“I’ve always been into working out and eating healthy.  That’s just who I am.”

“Being fit is almost as important to me as my face.  And for me, it’s a combination of being spiritually and physically fit.  There are guys who want to look good, and there are guys who want to perform at their best.  Being fit is about being able to perform at your best, not necessarily just looking your best.”

“I’ve always wanted to be in the health and wellness business.  I try to encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle.”

“I’m fortunate that my job gives me the motivation to be as fit as possible.  I wound up in a profession that requires physical and mental preparation, so I get to prepare like an athlete for everything I do.  I’m living the dream, man.”

“Working with talented people and challenging myself as an actor excites me.”

“Well every moment, every project is different.  I took a very slow approach to acting, trying to really work with people I could learn from.  And I got something different out of each experience.”

“Pretty early on in making the first movie I realized that this is what I wanted to do.  I felt like by that time I just found my niche, like this is what I was supposed to be doing.  So I completely submerged myself into the world of watching movies, making my own movies, buying video cameras and lights.  When I wasn’t making a movie, I was making my own movies.  When I wasn’t making movies, I was watching movies.  I was going back and studying film and looking back at guys that were perceived as great guys that I can identify with.  It just became my life.”

“Success for me is just having a job and have the studio feel confident that I can go out there and make a movie that people will enjoy.”

“I work as hard as anybody will ever work and I like that.  That’s why I’ve been successful and that is when I feel good about myself.  If I do my damnedest and don’t succeed, I feel good about the effort.”

“I prepare mentally and physically for everything I do.  I like having to do both, because you submerge yourself into the character and the world and you live it until it’s over.”

“All that running around in my underwear put money in my pockets.  I can focus on working in interesting movies without having to worry about supporting myself.”

“I don’t want to let my guard down and feel too comfortable.  If you become complacent, you start feeling entitled.  I’m ready to go dig ditches if I have to.  Whatever I gotta do to provide for my family.  Whatever I gotta do to make sure that I do the best possible job at whatever wonderful opportunities I’ve been handed.”

“Even my going back to school was to inspire young people that it’s never too late to get an education.  That’s all I can do, and try to be the best father and husband that I can be.”

“I don’t wanna hear nobody complain that they’re getting paid all this money and people won’t leave them alone.  It’s part of it.”

“There aren’t really many compliments flying around with me and my friends.  It’s a lot of tough love.  But you know, that love is there, and if you need to have a serious conversation, you just gotta wait for the right time to do it.”

“I want to serve God and to be a good human being and to make up for the mistakes I made and the pain I put people through.  That’s what I’m praying for, and I recommend it to anybody.”

“I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me, a good follower to those who are serving God and doing the right thing.”

“If I can start my day out by saying my prayers and getting myself focused then I know I’m doing the right thing.  That 10 minutes helps me in every way throughout the day.”

“I don’t think God’s going to judge me based on my film work – although I hope he has a sense of humor and I hope he’s a fan of movies because I’ve done some things that may be questionable in his eyes as an actor!”

“You got to have faith.  Look at all the junk and see the treasure.”

“I see a guy getting old.  I try to not look in the mirror too much.”

“I embrace old age.  Look, I’m never going to dunk on LeBron James, and I’ve learned to accept that.  I got a pretty good life, and I’m very fortunate, and I have my blessings.”

“I have more money now than I know what to do with.”

“I got a pretty good life, and I’m very fortunate, and I have my blessings.”
