“Be the change you want to see in the world.” (Ghandi) “Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision…they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” (Mohammed Ali) “The greatest mistake a man can make is being afraid to make one.”
