How do you find the time, energy & motivation to be in the gym so often? The answer is surprisingly simple – because bodybuilders were born for this. Today we want to share some quotes by The Predator of the stage… Kai Greene.
Bodybuilders live and die in the gym. Bodybuilder Kai Greene, the winner of Arnold Classic 2016 was born in Brooklyn, NY. He entered the foster system when he was just 6 years old due to a complex home environment. For the next decade, Kai bounced around different foster homes to institutional placements. He found solace in weight training as his refuge and became a professional bodybuilder.
The mind is everything. If you don’t believe you can do something, then you can’t. If you believe that your upbringing was substandard and therefore you have to walk around like a refugee from that crisis situation for the rest of your life, forever bearing the burden of that experience then that will be YOUR life. – Kai Greene
Nothing comes easy but as long as you’re breathing you’re always one breath away from making your dreams a reality. “Make every breath count” – Kai Greene
If you don’t have a dream, then you have nothing to work for, nothing to get up in the morning for, no reason.. and no purpose to be. But friends we do have a dream and dreams do come true not because we keep believing but we keep working hard. – Kai Greene
Success is not based on genetics. It’s not based on how nice his car is. It’s not based on how pretty my face is. How small my nose needs to look, whether or not I’m the right complexion. I have an eight-inch scar down the side of my face, but I have a camera in front of me more often than not. Which just means that if you work hard, and that your work is recognized, then the sky is the limit. So to all the people out there who think they are ugly and everything, I’m holding it down for you. But more importantly, you can still be a success. For all the people who think, “Well, I’m too short”, I’m still holding it down for you, you can still be a success. Find the things that you are excited about and that you can give your all in and work really hard towards attaining it. – Kai Greene
How intense could you be? Can you be intense enough to pick this 500Lbs off the floor? Are you intense enough to pick this 700Lbs up? Squat down to the floor and stand back up? So what if your eyes are bloodshot! So what if your bones feel like snapping! WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO! – Kai Greene
If I have to die tonight, if this weight is going to kill me tonight, so be it! I am dying where I want to be. – Kai Greene
You come to a point in your life, and you may be in bed just thinking about it. Ask yourself what is stopping you from becoming your dreams – Kai Greene
Your dreams are always going to be the most important to you than they will be to anybody else. So keep dreaming, keep believing, keep pressing forward. So all those warriors out there – be encouraged – Kai Greene
In the mind of every artist, there is a Masterpiece. – Kai Greene
It’s like you have to save your own life, nobody’s going to be able to save it for you. So we have to do what we have to do. – Kai Greene
